A UNCG professor will use a $1.8 million grant to improve safety for first responders in the field. Regis Kopper, an assistant professor of computer science, plans to use the National Institutes of Standards and Technology funding to develop augmented reality interfaces that first responders can use to get critical data while they are in the field, according to a news release from UNCG. “AR displays information and images over a person’s real-world vision – think Google Glass meets Pokemon Go – and is the next technological frontier for improving public safety,” Kopper said in the release. “It will give EMS personnel, firefighters, and law enforcement officers access to critical data when they need it the most, while they are in action in the field.”
