Launched in April 2002, E-MERGE was a combined RTD & demonstration project within the EC 5th Framework programme and EC Directorate General Information Society. Its overall objective was to ensure the availability and functioning of vehicle-based emergency call systems from any vehicle anywhere in Europe via the development of a harmonised extended vehicle eCall.

GST RESCUE is a three-year subproject within the EC-supported and ERTICO-coordinated Integrated Project GST (Global System for Telematics), launched 1 March 2004. GST RESCUE aims to optimise the initialisation of the in-vehicle eCall via an expert system and optimise the eCall service chain by ensuring that in-vehicle data first reaches the emergency centres and then the emergency vehicles. When the emergency vehicles have the proper in-vehicle accident information, a hybrid navigation solution and a “blue corridor” system notifying road users of the approach of an emergency vehicle will ensure that the emergency vehicles reach the scene of the accident as quickly and safely as possible.

TELEMATICS AT THE RESCUE OF ROAD SAFETY
Several European initiatives and projects have been started by the European automobile industry to support the objective of the European Commission to halve the number of European road fatalities by 2010. In this scope, Renault, in strong co-operation with some European partners, is prototyping some eSafety services to be tested in France and other European countries within the scope of the GST Integrated Project workplan. It has released a report which outlines the current vision and progress of the GST project, focusing on the GST RESCUE services and the CERTECS (Certification of Telematics Components and Services) approach.
