Sepura has developed SmartView, a mission critical application that it claims will allow team leaders to get a real time view of their team’s indoor or outdoor location.

SmartView uses GPS positioning to visualise outdoor positions and supplements this by reporting indoor location using either Bluetooth beacons or from Wi-Fi access points.

According to Sepura, the latest addition to its portfolio of AppSPACE applications for mission critical organisations has been designed to provide an operational advantage to organisations operating in public safety and across multiple sites.

The application can be deployed in sites with complex infrastructure such as airports, underground mining facilities or chemical processing plants, where staff may be working in underground tunnels or car parks, maintenance facilities or emergency rooms out of reach of a GPS signal. Sepura said that SmartView can also be used to improve staff safety, for example by limiting access to restricted areas such as secure rooms, or ensuring that part of a site is clear, for example a blast zone within a mining site.

Terence Ledger, worldwide sales director at Sepura said: “Since Sepura SC Radios incorporate our unique AppSPACE platform, they are delivered ‘application ready’ so making it even easier for mission critical organisations to enhance their operations, maximise their current investment and improve staff safety.”
