How Mercedes-Benz Is Using AR To Keep First Responders Safe
The car company's rescue assist app gives a digital helping hand to rescue workers
Rescuers at the scene of a car wreck face a host of difficult decisions, such as how to get the passengers from a twisted metal shell the most quickly and safely. Often, the solution involves cutting through the body of a vehicle whose doors no longer function. Once upon a time, that meant using a large saw to slice away the sheet metal, but now the times and cars have changed. With all the gadgets and devices in today’s cars, rescuers might cut into a damaged car only to hit a high-voltage wire, an undeployed airbag, electronics or even a fuel tank with disastrous results.
