Interoperability solutions company Mutualink has announced a partnership to enable its customers gain direct access to real-time traffic camera video across the US, through TrafficLand.
Under the partnership, which is part of Mutualink’s national interoperability network, emergency response agencies and support entities can access and view live traffic camera feeds as they collaborate with one another.
This is set to offer another source of critical information for coordinated assessment as well as response.
TrafficLand CEO Lawrence Nelson said: “TrafficLand network video offers eyes-on-the-ground, real-time content today, and is working with its partners to develop advanced analytic tools for roadway incidents and weather-related that will be very useful for first responders.
“The usefulness of this content and our capabilities are magnified within a real-time interoperable collaboration network of partner agencies working together.”
Mutualink’s real-time geospatial user interface provides real-time information from sensors and other data sources and will also give access to new video content.
As part of the collaboration, the TrafficLand real-time video will be integrated into the Mutualink platform and will be offered in secure interoperable incident sessions with necessary partners.
Mutualink CEO Mark Hatten said: “Mutualink’s interactive mapping interface offers real-time content such as weather, traffic, air, maritime and vehicle location, end-user locations, social media and a variety of other relevant real-time data sources in a fused information display interface for better situational awareness.
“This is done on an incident session specific view basis, as well as a general network view basis within our real-time interoperable communications and collaboration framework that is powerful.”
Mutualink noted that TrafficLand content will be made available as part of its standard platform offering.
Agencies that require additional services will also get advanced access and analytics options.
