ACEM position paper - On the development of eCall systems for L-category vehicles

eCall devices are tertiary safety systems that can further enhance riders’ safety, beyond the preventive and active primary safety systems that are currently deployed, such as ABS, or that are currently being researched for future deployment, such as vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2X) applications.

In 2013 the motorcycle industry joined the I_HeERO project that aims at implementing an emergency call or eCall solution to improve road safety in Europe through Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs). ACEM members participate in this project in order to develop minimum functional requirements for PTW (powered two wheeler) eCall systems and to prepare the basis for future standardization activities.

This work will enable widespread deployment of eCall systems in the future.
