Advantech releases in-vehicle eCall-ready system for vehicles

18 May 2013

dvantech has introduced the industrial grade 3.75G HSPA and standalone GPS combo mini PCIe module – EWM-C109F6G1E - for in-vehicle telematics and eCall applications.

eCall is a public pan-European emergency service initiative by the European Commission. It is designed to help save lives and increase road safety by promptly alerting emergency services when an accident occurs.

It combines mobile communications and satellite positioning to provide rapid assistance to motorists in accidents anywhere in the European Union. The system will automatically make an emergency call if in-vehicle sensors detect an accident. 

All new cars must be fitted with eCall devices by 2015 to enable rescue services to quickly respond to road collisions.

Key features include:
- GPS subsystem: with u-blox hardware standalone industrial grade Max-6 GPS module, providing high reliability and accurate positioning information for in-vehicle eCall devices.
- Cellular subsystem: industrial grade 3.75G HSPA cellular module providing an in-band modem to support eCall data transmission over voice channel (a mandatory requirement for eCall).
- API/AT commands for managing eCall: the proprietary API/AT commands are ready to create an MSD (Minimum Set of Data) to manage eCalls.
