Whelen’s newest innovations are redefining officer safety with the most advanced technology and customization options. As the market leader, Whelen continues to provide quality, American-made products.
The Whelen Cloud Platform®: The Whelen Cloud Platform delivers a multitude of capabilities for fleet management and safety. Using the Vehicle Safety Gateway® (VSG®), it bridges connectivity into next-generation analytics and software along with over-the-air (OTA) firmware updates, all while helping first responders make life-saving decisions through telemetric and GPS-based data.
WCP Traffic Preemption powered by Opticom™: Working with GTT, the upcoming integration with Opticom Emergency Vehicle Preemption (EVP) will further enhance officer safety. Opticom clears the intersection and gives officers the green light to safey respond to emergencies. This technology has been proven to reduce intersection crash rates by up to 70 percent while enabling officers to arrive up to 25% faster.
Analytics through WCP: The new analytics feature in WCP allows users to easily store, gather, and visualize vehicle and fleet statistics to generate custom reports. Users can view vehicle status statistics, heatmaps indicating where vehicles travel the most, and response mode information such as speed and location.
“The Whelen Cloud Platform continues to introduce powerful new features to agencies,” said Geoff Marsh, Whelen’s CEO. “The addition of analytics and EVP provides a new level of control to the Whelen Cloud Platform for fleet managers.”
CenCom Core® powered by WeCanX®: CenCom Core is a completely redesigned, breakthrough control system, which is powered by WeCanX®, the smartest and most powerful CAN-based communication system in the industry today. CenCom Core is a system created to enhance officer safety with advanced automation and remote connectivity.
