Automatic accident reporting

The Pan-European eCall device automatically makes an emergency call to the Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) for proper rescuing operations in event of car accident.

For proper emergency services and support the Pan-European eCall system automatically transmits the accident data to the Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) when a traffic accident is detected.

In this case, the emergency call cannot be hung up by pressing the SOS button and the Pan-European eCall system remains connected until the emergency service officer, receiving the call, disconnects the emergency call.

In minor traffic accidents the Pan- European eCall system may not execute an emergency call. However, an emergency call may be made manually by pressing the SOS button.


Operation of the system is impossible in case of absence of mobile transmission and GPS and Galileo signals.
