At CommunicAsia2015, Panasonic showcased its connected enterprise solutions in a truck that will soon make its way all around the hyper-connected city state of Singapore.
Soh Pheng Kiat, GM for Toughbook for Panasonic in ASEAN, showed how the truck is set up as a mobile headquarters showcasing Panasonic’s suite of mobility solutions for a large corporation or a law enforcement agency in a hyper-connected city.
Video surveillance cameras in the front and back of the truck feed live pictures to any number of devices, including Panasonic’s standard unified communications deskphone back at the office. Those cameras could be anywhere in the city feeding information back via 4G.
Panasonic has a data recorder that consolidates the feeds into one storage device and in turn feeds that to the client devices.
Soh said that he works with partners to provide image analysis, for instance of left bags or loitering persons.
It also offers a less than real-time solution. For instance, a fleet of buses can have their security camera footage automatically downloaded from the bus into a central server via Wi-Fi when the bus returns to the depot.
