Augmented Reality And Law Enforcement

Will Augmented Reality Change Policing?

The R-7 augmented reality glasses offer facial recognition and LPR

What does the future hold for law enforcement technology? Ask that question and you’ll get as many different answers as there are science fiction writers. To them, the future is limitless, and technology is what drives it. Fortunately, we don’t have to wait on the future or for our favorite writers to tell us. We can go directly to the source, the Osterhout Design Group (ODG) of San Francisco.
Since 1999, led by founder and CEO Ralph Osterhout, ODG has worked with high-tech electronics. This has led to the development of the R-7 Smartglasses — a set of specs that offer the wearer what is called augmented reality. Targeted for military and industrial use, these glasses immerse the wearer in an array of technology and applications designed to enhance performance while leaving the wearer’s hands free.
