In case you’ve already considered the further possibilities in mobile police work: as a Universal Windows Platform app, HybridForms Police works perfectly with Microsoft Continuum. This turns a smartphone into a personal computer, to which a monitor, a mouse or a keyboard can be connected with an adapter. A new Mercedes-Benz E-class was on show at the IT Summit in Saarbrücken, equipped as a police vehicle and demonstrating the initial results of the pilot project in Saarland. If a police officer connects a Continuum display adapter to his smartphone, the forms appear on the extra-wide dashboard display. All data is stored exclusively on the smartphone, so that no traces of data remain in the vehicle when it is unoccupied.
»This technology takes not only data protection but also asset protection into account: future generations of Windows phones will connect to the car just as easily without having to perform any modifications on the vehicle. This is particularly important, due to discrepancies between the innovation and development cycles of vehicles and mobile devices.« – Thomas Lipp, Senior Business Development Manager Public Sector, Microsoft Germany.
