eCall on the way

Safety in the automotive sector - European Commission: "eCall is an automatic emergency call system for motor vehicles. It dramatically shortens the time it takes for emergency services to arrive. Carmakers will have to install the technology in all new car and van models from 31 March 2018 onwards. The system could help save hundreds of lives every year and thus improve road safety in Europe. The eCall system is covered by two legislative acts:

Regulation concerning type-approval requirements for the deployment of the eCall in-vehicle system based on the 112 service and amending Directive 2007/46/EC (making the vehicle fit for eCall) (29 April 2015)

Decision on the deployment of the interoperable EU-wide eCall service (making the public infrastructure fit for eCall) (15 May 2015)

The final eCall report (2014) documents structure and assess the available information which may offer support in developing vehicle approval requirements and test procedures with respect to the eCall in-vehicle systems."
