PRINCETON, N.J. — ThirdEye, an augmented and mixed reality technology company, announced it would be available for use on FirstNet, the first responder-dedicated broadband communications platform.
The partnership with FirstNet allows ThirdEye’s X2 MR Glasses and RespondEye to access the platform and offers first responders a new way to find, record and transmit important data during a call.
ThirdEye previously established telehealth/telepresence pilot programs with two Pennsylvania fire departments who worked using the X2 MR glasses and RespondEye software. The technology allows first responders to wear the glasses and directly contact a doctor for assistance and stream live video from the scene to the doctor or medical team.
“We’re pleased to welcome ThirdEye as a member of our FirstNet IoT Embedded Program,” said Scott Agnew, assistant vice president of product marketing for FirstNet at AT&T. “This allows us to further our mission to deploy, operate, maintain and enhance the only nationwide wireless platform dedicated to public safety and the extended community that supports public safety response.”
The RespondEye software is compatible with iOS/Android phones and tablets, and is currently free for first responders, as data pricing tiers are created.
