Australia's National Safety Agency shows off Emergency Services Integrated Communications (ESIC) truck
The Emergency Services Integrated Communications (ESIC) parked inside Cisco Live in Melbourne.
The truck can be rolled into sites for emergency and provide communications and monitoring gear for public safety.
The trailer is 14.8 metres long and 20m including the truck.
The first ESIC serves Victoria but the National Safety Agency says it plans to build many more.
The truck gathers a plethora of situational information, including from live video and Twitter feeds.
A look inside the truck. Public safety workers face a wall of displays.
National Safety Agency chair Des Bahr in front of the ESIC's least technological element -- a white board.
The displays inside the vehicle show broadcast news, 3D simulations, social media and more.
Public safety agencies can use 3D simulations to determine how to respond to disasters like a dam bursting.
HP provides the computing power for the truck.
Surveillance by Cisco.
Cisco has also supplied the phones.
