eSafety initiative spurs increased customer demand for eCall
Creation date: 31 July 2006
The German automobile club ADAC, Europe’s largest automobile club, has completed its 7th year as a telematics service provider in Germany. eCall is a key part of their service portfolio and at the time of writing it has responded to over 7,000 emergency calls from ADAC members, non-members and car manufacturers.
Generated either manually by a vehicle occupant or automatically via activation of in-vehicle sensors, an eCall will establish voice contact with the nearest emergency centre and automatically transmit a minimum set of data about the accident.
ADAC estimates that one reason for this is the eSafety initiative and its eCall Road Map, which aims at equipping all new vehicles in Europe with an automatic emergency call system as of 2010. Together with other leading automobile clubs within the ARC-Network, ADAC actively contributes to the eCall discussion and development at both European and national level.
eCall is top priority
