Motorola Solutions-RapidSOS Alliance Seeks to Deliver Emergency Data From Connected Devices

RapidSOS and Motorola Solutions have partnered in an effort to increase the amount of data available to public safety agencies and first responders as well as provide information that can aid response times and emergency outcomes.

Both companies aim to establish an end-to-end emergency data connectivity network that will work to collect third-party data from connected devices and flow through Motorola’s emergency response systems, which will then direct the information to first responders in the field, Motorola said Tuesday.

Motorola added it seeks to grow the company’s portfolio of Smart Public Safety products and service offerings for public safety agencies through the partnership.

“Our combined efforts provide the public safety community with the option for what, when, and how data is conveyed to them in an emergency to save lives,” said RapidSOS CEO Michael Martin.

Eduardo Conrado, executive vice president of Motorola Solutions’ strategy and innovation office, said the partnership with RapidSOS adds a new dimension to Motorola’s command center software products and seeks to  help deliver information to people who need it most.
