Challenge: Situational awareness of port police in the port of Valencia: the case of dangerous goods

In the dynamic environment of the port of Valencia, a crucial challenge is posed by the application of extended reality technologies to optimise the management of critical and complex situations, particularly with regard to the handling of dangerous goods. Port police are confronted on a daily basis with a variety of scenarios that require rapid responses and informed decisions. Therefore, the need to integrate real-time data from various sources (such as security cameras, IoT sensors and information systems among others) is an essential component to provide officers with a complete and up-to-date view on dangerous goods in the port environment.

This challenge invites startups to explore innovative solutions that leverage extended reality to transform the how port police perceive and respond to the complexities of dangerous goods in the port environment. The effective integration of emerging technologies will open up new opportunities to enhance the security and operational efficiency of dangerous goods in the port of Valencia. The emphasis is on creativity and disruptive approaches to overcome current challenges, providing agents with advanced tools for proactive port security management.
