  • PulsePoint


    PulsePoint is a mobile phone application that allows users to view and receive alerts on calls being responded to by fire departments and emergency medical services. The app's main feature, and where its name comes from, is that it sends alerts to users at the same time that dispatchers are sending the call to emergency crews. The goal is to increase the possibility that a victim in cardiac arrest will receive cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) quickly. The app uses the current location of a user and will alert them if someone in their vicinity is in need of CPR. The app, which interfaces with a fire departments dispatch center, will send notifications to users only if the victim is in a public place and only to users that are in the immediate vicinity of the emergency. In February, 2017 PulsePoint introduced a professional version called Verified Responder that also alerts in residential settings. Based in the San Francisco Bay Area PulsePoint is run by a non-profit foundation of the same name. As of December 5, 2018, the foundation reported that connected agencies had requested the assistance of 188,520 nearby responders for 58,900 cardiac arrest events.

  • Full body scanner


    Full body scanner in millimeter wave scanners techniue at Cologne Bonn Airport Image from an active millimeter wave body scanner A full-body scanner is a device that detects objects on a person's body for security screening purposes, without physically removing clothes or making physical contact. Depending on the technology used, the operator may see an alternate-wavelength image of the person's naked body, or merely a cartoon-like representation of the person with an indicator showing where any suspicious items were detected. For privacy and security reasons, the display is generally not visible to other passengers, and in some cases is located in a separate room where the operator cannot see the face of the person being screened. Unlike metal detectors, full-body scanners can detect non-metal objects, which became an increasing concern after various airliner bombing attempts in the 2000s. Starting in 2007, full-body scanners started supplementing metal detectors at airports and train stations in many countries.
