eCall

— The European in-vehicle localization service

A new technology to automate emergency calls in vehicles

eCall refers to automatic or manual calls generated by a sensor inside the vehicle. The call is made to the 112 PSAP, establishing a channel between the occupants of the car and the call takers.

The call includes vehicle data: position, direction, and time, providing the 112 call takers with detailed information to reach the accident location. This was possible because of the European standardization of vehicles and technology.

Beta 80 has been at the forefront for years in the implementation of a complete eCall solution for PSAPs, taking part in the first Italian project and with installations in various countries.
