Future Technology


What about older buildings?

In the future, all new buildings will need to be scanned to make a holographic image.  They will be outfitted with bluetooth technology heat, smoke, and carbon monoxide sensors, which would be linked to fire and police stations.   Blueprints from older buildings could be scanned to produce the holographic image and these buildings also could be retrofitted with bluetooth heat, smoke, and carbon monoxide detectors.
Development of Hologram Technology

Researchers would need to develop hologram technology to make it versatile.  The technology would need to be easily manipulated and able to be oriented via GPS to relay information as the firefighter looks in one direction or another.  Holograms would need to be created from blueprint drawings, using each of the floor plans to create the 3D structure.  Additional information such as thermal imaging and location of firefighters or officers would need to be able to be interfaced into the hologram. 
What else would need to change?

Holograms themselves would need both an internet network with higher bandwidths and high speeds compared with today's technology, and computers capable of performing trillions of instant calculations.  The technology would have to advance to eliminate the need for 3D glasses to see the images, according to howstuffworks.com.
Testing and Experimental Trials

In order to be sure that this technology would be accurate, testing of the SIGHT System would need to be performed in a variety of trial situations with mock emergency scenarios. Data collected on the accuracy of the holograms could be computed through measurements in order to refine the technology.  Testimonials from those firefighters testing the equipment would be most valuable in order to be sure that the system was helpful and accepted by other departments.
