Overview[edit | edit source]
The roadmap charts the path toward overcoming technical obstacles so that those interconnected technologies, known collectively as cyberphysical systems (CPS) can be harnessed to greatly improve fire-protection and fire-fighting capabilities.
The ultimate aim of the roadmap is to enable real-time delivery of useful information before, during and after a fire incident or other emergency — to get actionable intelligence to the first responders who need it, when they need it.
