Motorola Solutions opened an innovation center in London that the company said sets a vision of “smart public safety for a digital society.”

The center showcases technologies including CommandCentral Analytics, used to support decisions on areas to patrol; an application of artificial intelligence (AI) working with natural language processing software to help officers interact with backend systems and retrieve critical intelligence; and a future fire incident command concept, demonstrating how the use of mixed reality technology by an incident commander at the scene can improve situational awareness and the safety of firefighters.

“Society is being transformed by technology, and public safety is too,” said Eduardo Conrado, chief strategy and innovation officer at ‎Motorola Solutions. “Next-generation solutions can help public safety enhance workflow, boost efficiency and ultimately improve safety and outcomes. Public-safety organizations need not only the technology and tools to meet their evolving needs, but also a partner with specialized knowledge and experience to understand their challenges, find solutions and imagine new ways to get the job done.”

Motorola also said it celebrating 50 years of innovation in the United Kingdom. The company introduced the world’s first TETRA nationwide digital radio network, which is the basis for Airwave, the U.K. TETRA-based public-safety network. In 1994, the company developed radio, cable and antenna systems for the newly opened Channel Tunnel between England and France. In 2015, Motorola Solutions was chosen to provide user services, system integration and critical functionality for the U.K.’s Long Term Evolution (LTE) Emergency Services Network (ESN). Motorola Solutions moved its Europe, Middle East and Africa regional headquarters to London in 2017.
