The Connected Car Principle
eCall- and bCall-systems are inextricably linked to the vehicle usage of the future. Are you a fleet manager and do you in addition to position determination want to be kept informed about the technical condition of your vehicles? The connected car offers you online information about position and velocity at any time. In addition, the occupants of the vehicle are able to communicate directly with your alarm or service centre via eCall or bCall.
By activating the system, both the position of the vehicle and a standardized data set are communicated to the closest emergency service (road assistance, emergency centre, etc.).
Activation occurs when the driver has to make an emergency stop or when the occupants use the eCall-button.
The standardized data set which is sent because the system is activated, consists of sensor measurements in the vehicle (including speed, location, date, time) and the information linked to the ID of the vehicle (registration number, make, fuel type, etc.). In addition, after activation, the system immediately establishes a direct line of communication between the occupants of the vehicle and the emergency or service organisation.
The "breakdown call" is activated by the occupants themselves when pressing the button. The standardized data set, in this case, is also sent to the emergency or service organisation, as well as the opening of a direct communication line with the occupants of the vehicle.
