The MOBI project results that all public protection and disaster relief (PPDR) actors have many similar applications in their vehicles such as a navigation system, patrol tracking, target maps, activity logs, alarms and remote access to central databases as well as controlling of blue lights and sirens, power supply systems, communications equipment, and need of inventory of equipment. The study shows that information and communication technology (ICT) systems should be designed as modular system where individual modules could be replaced without the need to change other parts of the whole system. The modules are 1) a vehicle infrastructure and power management layer, 2) a communications layer, 3) a service platform and common services layer, and 4) an actor-specific services layer. Some aspects, such as security, power efficiency and product safety regulations run through all the layers. According to our approach, although police patrol cars, fire trucks and ambulances are different their communications layer as well as their service platform and common services layer could be identical. This enables interoperability between PPDR organisations and first responders, at least at technical level.
