Firefighting for the future.
Startup Longan Vision developed a functional prototype for the Fusion Vision System (FVS), an augmented reality visor to let firefighters see the unseen.
Through thermal imaging, environmental analysis, and remote image sharing with command vehicles, the FVS had the potential to offer unprecedented real-time data for firefighters. When you can see through smoke, you can more quickly identify hotspots, locate victims, and detect fire sources — equipping these first responders with a superpower that they haven’t had in 2000 years of organized firefighting.
It’s like giving a firefighter the vision of Iron Man.
Longan Vision had lots of discussions with firefighters, and interest from the industry. They needed a partner who could dive deeper into the ergonomic design and mature Longan Vision’s product — a team who could turn those insights into ergonomic design opportunities, and execute.
