Maryland is using $1m federal grant to test digital IDs: The notion is that these IDs would allow a first responder to provide credentials, and produce an automatic count of who is on the scene. The first round of IDs won’t include GPS trackers, but that could be added. The cards will be scanned by handheld devices linked via WI-Fi to a network. Five thousand cards will be issued in this test, but there are only seven card readers.
