EMERGE 2016: Wearable Technology

see notice 

S&T is looking to the startup community to bring wearable technologies to first responders. Building on the success of itsEMERGE Accelerator Pilot last year, S&T continues to mobilize innovators to help first responders whose difficult and grueling job requires them to carry outdated and heavy equipment.

With EMERGE 2016: Wearable Technology, we want to enable today’s firefighters, police and emergency medical technicians to communicate seamlessly with fellow responders, to survey a scene in advance, and to track their health status as they put themselves in harm’s way.
