Since 2018 eCall – a new way to call 112 to report a car accident – has arrived in Europe. For years Beta 80 has been a leader in the spread and the implementation of this new technology, thanks to our deep experience in the industry.
Beta 80, together with AREU Lombardy, Magneti Marelli, Fiat Research Center and TIM have been pioneers in studying the eCall technology, working on a pilot project for Italy. We have been contributing to the development of this technology since 2011, participating in the first related project for Europe, called HeERO.
Between 2015 and 2017, Beta 80 participated to the new I_HeERO European project, focusing on the next eCall future generation (for heavy vehicles and motorcycles) and new methodologies for data sharing between elements involved in a street accident.
Always recognized as a leading company in the industry, Beta 80 offers a complete solution for eCall (in-band modem) for 112 Operational Rooms, currently active in Italy and Lithuania. Beta 80 is also among the first companies to bring the eCall standard outside the European Union, with our in-band modem for Abu Dhabi Police force, in UAE.
