Excellence in VR/AR Award, Glendale Tech Week, City of Glendale

September 2018

Screen Door Laboratories created ARescue, a team communication software built for firefighters. The virtual command center shows commanders 2D and 3D maps, as well as geotags and video feeds from drone operators and other firefighters. Boots on the ground can see virtual markers that lead them to their objectives. Running on tablets, smartphones, and several off-the-shelf AR headsets, ARescue allows first responders to work safer, respond faster, and communicate better as a team.

VR Navigation

4th place, VR Heads-Up-Display Navigation Challenge, National Institute of Standards and Technology

June 2018

Screen Door Laboratories demonstrated our software in both augmented reality and virtual reality. Having a working mixed reality prototype, we introduced our software to government officers, researchers, and scientists. In a more controlled virtual reality environment, we demonstrated how eye-tracking serves as a perfect UX/UI tool for officers. This design won us the 4th place of the Virtual Reality Heads-Up-Display Navigation Challenge hosted by NIST’s Public Safety Communications Research Program.
