Delphi Sets Course for Standard Based Emergency Call System
MOU Sets Seal on Delphi’s “eCall” Strategy
“We are convinced that this safety initiative will make a vital contribution to providing faster assistance to occupants if an accident should occur. Delphi, in its role as one of the world’s leading system suppliers and a technological pioneer in the safety sector, supports the development of eCall in Europe. We expect to make a decisive contribution to fostering the smooth introduction of this initiative within the European Union” commented Michael Heise, managing director of Infotainment Systems at Delphi Electronics & Safety EMEA, after signing the MOU.
A European Commission and industry joint plan of action calls for all new vehicles, as from 2010, to be equipped with automatic emergency call systems (eCall). As part of the eCall plan of action, the European State Member governments are called on to set up the preconditions for a standardised, cross-border emergency call system. Technically, the eCall system can send out an emergency call - following an impact - to an Emergency Call Centre thus providing it with the exact location of the accident. This emergency call can either be sent out automatically or manually by the driver, from within the vehicle. Providing exact details on the location and other information on the vehicle concerned, greatly assists the rescue services through notifying them faster, which in turn helps to save life and enable injured parties to be given assistance.
