Adoption of AR/VR for Law Enforcement Training
AR/VR tools are used by law enforcement agencies for training purposes as well as for crime scene investigation and courtroom presentations. AR/VR tools have potential in transforming training, improving skills, which makes easier for enforcement officers. Companies in the market are focusing on providing innovative tools to enforcement agencies. For instance, in April 2018, Axom developed a system that is designed for training the police in a range of skills, including de-escalation of potentially violent situations and dealing with public with hearing impairment or Alzhemier’s.
Apart from training, Augmented Reality (AR) is useful for officers as it helps them to stay aware of what is happening in their area and enhances their understanding of the situation with overlaid computer images. In China, a startup Xloong Technology launched AR glasses in May 2017, that allow police to access license plate recognition functions and facial recognition function in real time. The product also helps the officers to identify suspects through data analytics. Furthermore, in the U.S., police officers use a system called Apex officer, that helps enforcement officials to train to respond to call where mental health is an issue.
Thus, the increasing adoption of AR/VR tools is driving the market growth.
