Emergency ambulance services are always on duty. Devices in ambulance serve for patient monitoring and reporting, or route navigation. Usually tablets switch between vehicle and field work, and require vehicle docking stations to allow devices to be powered from the vehicle, provide additional interfaces and just as a convenient mounting solution inside the moving vehicle.
