NC4 Street Smart, built for Windows 10 on the Universal Windows Platform, is accessible from mobile devices, laptops and tablets as well as large-scale displays including Microsoft Surface Hub. The application takes advantage of the latest Microsoft technologies, including GPS location services and on-board camera functions that provide real-time situational awareness. Other Windows features include speech-to-text using Cortana, Microsoft Edge Web Note and Continuum, which provides a seamless experience across devices.
"NC4 Street Smart is a valuable technology that allows our officers to obtain and view detailed data quickly, efficiently and securely. With the fast pace of each investigation, having the ability to share and review data on various platforms in the field is more important than ever," says Colonel E.M. Setting, Police Chief of the New Castle County (Del.) Police Department.
Officers can choose the informational feeds they want to see on the map based on the information that is important to them. Filtering information gives officers the ability to maximize their situational awareness while maintaining a view that does not cause visual overload or information fatigue.
