eCall – European Commission pavens way for automatic emergency calls from cars

The EC accepted the proposal to equip all new cars from October 2015 with an automatic emergency call system mandatory.  This has to be still accepted by the EC member states and the European parliament. The system named eCall is coupled on the air bag and transfers on a collision automatically the GPS coordinates of the car to an emergency service. In parallel an audio connection will be established to the car driver who has then the possibility to cancel an emergency service if not needed.
