UAMK becomes 55th signatory of eCall MoU
Creation date: 09 May 2007
The UAMK (Ustredni Automotoklub - Czech Motoring Club) has become the 55th signatory of the eCall Memorandum of Understanding (MoU). The MoU was signed by UAMK Czech Republic President Oldrich Vanicek on 19 April 2007.
The UAMK is an FIA-affiliated motoring club with the objective of helping motorists, especially in emergency situations relating to travellers and vehicle. By signing the MoU, the UAMK recognises the importance of eCall along with a long list of other stakeholders.
eCall is an in-vehicle emergency call that may be triggered manually by pushing a button in the vehicle or automatically when a vehicle senses that a crash has occurred. In the event of an accident, eCall technology will call the emergency services (Public Safety Answering Point – PSAP) and transmit a so-called minimum set of data (MSD). This enables emergency personnel to obtain details about the accident and their response time can be reduced up to 50%.
The eCall MoU, which was created in May 2004, provides a solid basis for the partners to actively contribute to the development and implementation of eCall in potentially all new vehicles sold in Europe by 2010.
