Police incident solved thanks to MIRTUSZ Mobile application

A lucky accident happened when Geometria could actively take part in solving a police incident successfully. The case in details: during work, the field tablet of a public utility company’s on-site technician was stolen, on which the MIRTUSZ Mobile application was running. Since the programme constantly sends signs to the central system that contain the GPS coordinates of the tablet’s current location, we could keep track of the stolen device’s route. So we only needed to guide the police, and this way, both the tablet and the thief have turned up.

The reason why this incident took more than one and a half hour was that the appropriate information could only be found in the system’s central database, which wouldn’t have been possible without the great support of the system operators. After this, with the GPS location displayed in the Map Portal, the police officer could be directed on the phone to the wanted spot. However, the process was slow enough for the thief to change his location and to start the cat-and-mouse game again. Finally, when the thief settled, the police could catch him.

The story involves more lessons. On the one hand, the incident was solved thanks to the fast, smart and effective assistance of Geometria’s operators, as well as the MIRTUSZ Mobile and Map Portal applications operated by them. On the other hand, it needs to be considered if it was useful to make the coordinates stored in the system’s database retrievable and directly accessible to the authorized users if needed.

65th Annual Conference and Exhibition of the Hungarian Electrotechnical Association

This year, the annual Itinerary Conference was organised for the 65th time. The organizer was the Hungarian Electrotechnical Association. They chose Thermal Hotel Visegrád as the location of the event, the main topics of which were digitalization and clean energy. Interested experts could get an overall picture of electrical industry’s latest technological trends during plenary sessions and section meetings. They could also exchange their ideas and views at friendly gatherings as usual.

At the section meetings, even two of our excellent colleagues were allowed to give a presentation. András Dunay shared his knowledge on this topic in his talk titled “Conscious conversion to data-driven maintenance planning and network operation”, while Dr. Attila Fűr gave a presentation called “Augmented reality and its application at public utility companies”. The professional magazine Elektrotechnika (Electrical Engineering) found Attila’s topic interesting. The editors of the magazine asked him therefore to write a longer article which can be read here. We are very proud of our colleagues’ success.

Besides the presentations, we took part in the event with sponsoring and an own booth, too. A huge number of acquaintances and new interested participants visited our exhibition stand. Our innovative augmented reality module got particularly much interest, and besides our conventional systems, we also introduced our updated mobile work control solution (MIRTUSZ Mobile application). We will keep working hard in order to present considerable technological developments to interested experts next year again.
