Airbus to demo virtual reality at CCW

Airbus will demonstrate a new pilot version of its real-time virtual reality technology at Critical Communications World 2018 in Berlin.

During the simulated scenario, a firefighter will wear a 360-degree camera in a metro station. Then, from a command centre, a supervisor will virtually ‘step’ into the situation.

This solution is based on Secure Mobile Virtual Network Operator (SMVNO) infrastructure, which provides secure broadband capacities from network operators to public safety agencies.

The aim is for firefighters and police officers to be able to carry out complex tasks from remote places through a secure communications infrastructure.

SMVNO and virtual reality features can be combined with other narrow- and broadband components of the Airbus Tactilon Suite portfolio.
