Abstract

Current trunking customer operation requires a radio or dispatch operator to manually provide ver- bal responses to many events occurring on a trunked radio system. This responsibility adversely effects operator performance. There is no automated method to produce transmitted verbal information on a trunking system is response to events occurring on the trunking system.

AUTOMATIC VERBAL RESPONSE

by Andrew Fuehl and Robert Plaza

BACKGROUND

EXAMPLE #l

  Current trunking customer operation requires a radio or dispatch operator to manually provide ver- bal responses to many events occurring on a trunked radio system. This responsibility adversely effects operator performance. There is no automated method to produce transmitted verbal information on a trunking system is response to events occurring on the trunking system.

  In a public safety environment an emergency event taking place in one radio system group would only be heard in that group and not in any other groups. Dispatchers or supervisors must manually inform other groups of the event. Using the Auto- matic Verbal Response concept an automated ver- bal message would be transmitted to other radio system groups. The verbal message would indicate an emergency and verbally provide which radio sys- tem group and radio was involved.

SOLUTION

  This invention utilizes a fixed end computer with an associated database, a computer controllable radio or direct audio connection to the system backbone, and voice synthesis/recording technology. The com- puter monitors the radio system activity looking for selected events such as an emergency indication or a status/message event. When an event occurs, the computer automatically compiles a list of individual radio IDS or radio system groups which require ver- bal event indication for the received event. Informa- tion for compiling this list would come from the event indication itself and/or from a search of the computer's...
