Virtual Control Head

A software based dashboard that can be used to control multiple devices such as siren, lights, radar, and radios from a single touch screen. The hardware control heads for the various devices are replaced by a single computer, thereby increasing space within the vehicle. The software is customized by the administrator to offer control of the devices within the department. VCH is extremely versatile, with the unique ability of having a physical connection to devices within the vehicle, custom labeling of buttons and determining order and placement of the buttons on screen.
