MapTrip 112 – navigation

Clears the way for optimal deployment

We all know speed is of the essence in any emergency situation and so is the assistance provided by a well-trained team, expertly supported by the MapTrip 112 navigation software that maps out the fastest route to the scene of the incident or emergency. The special functions for flashing lights and sirens guide all vehicles of the fire department, emergency and rescue services as well as the police to the scene of the incident without losing any time. Works perfectly in combination with existing control center software.

Ideal for efficient deployment with flashing lights and sirens

An emergency. Everything has to be done in double time. Making every movement count, the rescue team jump into the vehicle and the vehicle pulls out with flashing lights and siren. The driver knows the shortest route, but then suddenly encounters an unexpected road block. The vehicle must turn and take another route. Valuable time is lost. Time which may cost the lives of the victims. These – or similar scenes – are daily events on our streets. But is it possible to avoid situations like these?

The ideal case: Control center software combined with MapTrip 112

With its special functions for flashing light and siren deployment, MapTrip 112 perfectly complements all control center software.

Even the most modern standard navigation systems are not sufficient for flashing light and siren applications. They simply lack the information on temporary local street closures, as these are generally not reported to the transport services; information that is vitally important for emergency vehicles.

Another weakness is the map data for which much more up-to-date and detailed information is available in the cities and control centers than in the standard map data.

Our MapTrip navigation system works with real-time information from numerous sources (traffic situation, weather, etc.) and use this accumulated data as the basis to always choose the best route.

MapTrip Detour Editor: Safely bypass all road closures

With the Detour Editor, you can prevent roadblocks such as construction sites or street festivals. The road closures are automatically synchronized with MapTrip 112 Navigation and will be avoided in the routes for your emergency vehicles. 

Road closures, events and temporary roadwork sites occur every day and depending on the extent of each individual situation, several streets can be affected. Municipal authorities are usually aware of this and pass this information on to the control centers. Using the Editor, dispatchers at the control center can easily enter all road closures in MapTrip. The server and MapTrip are constantly synchronized – this ensures that all data is immediately imported into the end devices of all vehicles and drivers can focus on traffic and on-coming deployment.

Automatic synchronization of the roadblocks in MapTrip 112

Expanding the standard map data

The available map data has to be adapted to suit the needs of flashing light and siren use and kept synchronized between the control center and the vehicles.

The example below shows a recording of the access to a sports field, which is not listed in the standard map data. When the data structuring process in infoware is completed, it appears as a regular road that MapTrip 112 can access.

Expanding the map data is useful for the following applications:

  • Lifting truck restrictions for emergency vehicles (bridges, residential areas)
  • Large factory premises, backyards
  • New roads, developing areas, etc.
  • Completion of access roads
Aerial image: view of the access road

Other, exciting additional features of MapTrip 112

  • Automatic transmission of the destination from the deployment site to the navigation device in the vehicle
  • Adjustment of travel time calculation due to higher speed of the emergency vehicles
  • Fixed reference route specification by the control center



  • Special flashing light and siren routing: clearing one-way streets, pedestrian zones or bus-taxi zones for access by emergency services
  • Modern and intuitive screen design: easy wiping between different screens

Emergency Routing 4.0 saves valuable time
