ICT Solution: Ambulance Navigation and Information System

RAV Brabant MWN is looking for an end-to-end solution (including software and hardware), that is easy to replace in case of breakdown (less cables and apparatus), that has increased location precision, an immediate response time and less margin of error, as well as enables the sharing of information between the ambulance and the patient information to provide for a better health service. In addition, the solution should be based on a map/application that already includes considerable amounts of geolocation information and positions, also allowing to keep the information that RAV Brabant MNV generates by operating the solution.

With the innovative tools, RAV Brabant Midden-West-Noord wants to obtain a secure and precise signal that is highly efficient with continuity in GPS use,  as well as with the communication of patient information. The software and hardware to be used in ambulance systems will have a dual approach for: (1) encrypted communication of the patient information, and (2) encrypted satellite information.

The Ambulance Navigation and Information System will improve the quality and efficiency in ambulance services with the use of encrypted satellite information to prevent the services from obtaining misleading signals in the coordinates of the ambulance trajectory. A reduction in costs is also expected as a result of the precision of the tools and a better spreading of the position of the ambulances.

Key technologies:

  • Cybersecurity
  • Global Navigation Satellite System
  • Map applications
  • Encrypted communication
