The core function of government is the security of its citizens, with an emphasis on their rights, lives, and protection of person and property. In this light, what is the role of technology in optimizing how a government goes about protecting its citizenry and enriching their lives?
Augmented Reality (AR) technology has emerged as a visualization tool that is changing the way citizens interact with their government. AR can be used to strengthen police and fire protection duties, improve border and transportation security, maximize the operational efficiency of government units, and serve as a tool for a citizen to better understand the activities of his or her government.
As a result of the rapidly changing pace in technology and security needs, new tools and techniques are required to aid public security and service. Driven by superfast mobile broadband and advanced software programs and data sensors, AR technologies are maturing to enable smarter fast-response emergency services; these technologies also use predictive analytics to forecast and mitigate the impact of natural disasters. AR provides an advanced means to ensure the protection of life and property; it also offers a new method to inform and train people about emergency and disaster management.
This paper will primarily examine the role of Augmented Reality (AR) in supporting safety and security operations managed by the government. It will also analyze key trends in the development of AR to support government-backed safety and security operations.
