FirstNet is the only nationwide, high-speed broadband communications platform dedicated to and purpose-built for America's first responders and the extended public safety community, according to a press release.
FC Vision is now available for first responders and those who support them, such as healthcare, transportation, and utility fleets, and provides the power of video telematics with FC Vision to improve fleet safety and reduce costs.
Nationwide Emergency Response Support
FirstNet is built with AT&T. Its mission is to solve long-standing communications challenges faced by public safety entities and those supporting emergency response nationwide. It allows first responders and those that support them to communicate with one another easily and quickly during everyday situations, big events, or emergencies. FirstNet is evolving based on the needs of and feedback from the public safety community to help first responders stay mission ready.
FC Vision brings advanced driver assistance (ADAS) and driver monitoring systems (DMS) to video telematics. With FC Vision's dual-facing camera and audio feedback options, departments and operators gain enhanced on-road and optional in-cab visibility — helping first responders and those that support them reduce incident-related costs with on-demand, high-definition video retrieval, and analysis.
How FC Vision Works
High-risk g-sensor triggered events captured by FC Vision include harsh braking, cornering, acceleration, possible collision, and AI detected events, such as tailgating, speeding, rolling stops, mobile device usage while driving, and other distracted driving occurrences.
In the case of an incident, drivers have the option to push a button located on the device to send instant notifications and footage to managers. Video-based coaching tools, such as in-vehicle verbal coaching in English, Spanish, or French and safety-related dashboard reports, empower drivers to proactively implement safe driving habits while enhancing operational efficiency.
"Fleet Complete is proud its FC Vision telematics solution is recognized as meeting the high standards needed to receive a FirstNet Trusted product certification, Fleet Complete Chief Product Officer Frank Friesacher said. "We look forward to working with AT&T to continue enabling government agencies with actionable data insights for greater driver safety and fleet effectiveness."
