Best Way to Cut Up Cars Shown in iPhone Application
Regardless of how secure a car could be, car accidents still occur and sometimes they are quite severe. Consequently, this often requires the intervention of the rescue team. In addition, the more complex and complicated cars are, the more difficult rescue operations can be.
Apparently, the rescue workers’ job can get easier by the help of a new application for iPhones. This is not a very smart one, but it’s a useful one, which solves the problem of undeployed airbags or blocked seatbelts that could harm even more the persons in the damaged car if not acted properly during rescue. Not to mention the situations of accidents involving electric cars, with the specific risks that those involve. Because of all this, a rescue crew should know which are the specific points of different vehicles where they can be easily cut in case of an accident.
So, Bohemian Innovations of Austin, Texas, has developed Extraction Zones, a catalog of diagrams with car physical structure, using the existing vehicle schematics. The results are generated by overlaying vehicle’s components, using multi-layers, color graphics, showing the best places were they can be cut in. It is easy to use and to be carried to the accident’s place, which makes this option even more useful.
“There is no splash screen to sit through, first responders can select and deselect what they wish to see at any given time, as well as choose a day or night vision mode to modify the colors as needed. (…) Each car layout also has the ability to zoom in and out easily.”
said company CEO Albert Swantner.
The entire project came from the idea of a firefighter and a paramedic to make their job easier and with less risks. For the moment, the app is available only for iPhone, but Android and iPad versions will be released soon. All that we can say is just good luck with that!
