March 2001 - Motorola's Integrated Solutions Division Announces New Innovative Software Product - Virtual Control Head

Virtual Control Head (VCH) Provides an Integrated Workspace for Maximum Productivity and Ease of Operation.

Stamford, CT (February 23, 2001) - Motorola's Integrated Solutions Division (ISD) announced today its latest public safety product, Virtual Control Head (VCH), a powerful software application designed to centralize access and control of peripherals in a vehicle. Motorola's solution is an easy-to-use, touch-screen software application that controls all of the vehicle peripherals from one place and provides the option of removing certain peripheral control heads from the cabin of the vehicle.
Since the typical patrol vehicle is equipped with several independent devices that control the peripherals in the automobile, it can be a crowded and difficult place to work. These peripherals can include voice radios, radar, sirens and lights. Adding to this problem is a trend toward smaller vehicles which, when paired with air bag considerations, makes it increasingly difficult to find space to house much of today's available technology.

"VCH is the ideal software application to integrate the vehicle workspace and increase efficiency by combining essential functions on the computer. This will provide departments with a platform for future Motorola application integration and expansion," explained Brian Lehmann, Director, Product Marketing for ISD.  In addition to consolidating multiple mobile voice radios, radar, siren and lights, VCH also controls any relays provided by the siren box, such as gunlocks, brake lights and dog releases. The application runs on a touch-screen computer alongside the messaging application, providing a central source for information and control. The Virtual Control Head buttons can be configured to meet each agency's specific needs.
