Rescue Assist is an innovative new app that is designed to help emergency response personnel to do their jobs better and save lives by making it easier than ever for them to embrace and make full utility of augmented reality imagery.

What's great about the Rescue Assist app is that it allows rescue and emergency personnel to make use of augmented reality to have a better idea of dangerous places around a car that has been in an accident. Developed for the Mercedes range of vehicles, the Rescue Assist app makes use of three-dimensional modeling to allow users to inspect, zoom into and rotate around areas of interest.

This app goes to show that augmented reality isn't just all about collecting pocket monsters, and it could even be used to save lives.
