In-vehicle Solutions



Panasonic Toughbook® mobile computers can be mounted in all types of vehicles to provide government and military personnel with access to important information. Information may include maps, GPS, electronic medical records, criminal records and other government files that can be critical in resolving the situation at hand. Because these computers are constantly on the move, they must be rugged. The sturdy construction of Toughbook mobile computers assures maximum uptime for greater productivity and a lower total lifecycle cost.


U.S. Air Force fire and rescue squads face many of the same challenges as their civilian counterparts. First, they need assistance finding the incident site. Then they need access to mission-critical information, such as patient medical records, building profiles and the locations of gas shut-offs, and any hazardous materials that may be present. During a fire or rescue mission, equipment may be exposed to bumps, drops, water and extreme temperatures.

Panasonic Toughbook mobile computers are built with sturdy magnesium alloy cases, shock-mounted hard drives and spill resistant keyboards that are tough enough to withstand the knocks, moisture and extreme conditions often associated with fire and rescue operations. The ultra-bright daylight-viewable touch screens make it easy to enter and read information in even the brightest conditions. Toughbook computers can also provide a direct wireless link to the department's computer aided dispatch (CAD) center, allowing the dispatcher to transfer routing data, call location, patient records and HAZMAT information to the crew while en route. Panasonic works with its integrator partners to incorporate the wireless communications, global positioning system (GPS) and internet technologies that provide dispatchers and crews with all the information they need, when they need it.
