EU Parliament Adopts Resolution on eCall

arisvega (1414195) writes "In its resolution adopted today, the European Parliament has called on the European Commission and the Member States to make sure that the eCall system is be installed in every new vehicle by 2015.

Vehicles equipped with the eCall system will automatically contact the emergency services in the event of a crash.

Even if no passenger is able to speak, a minimum set of data will be sent through the system, including the exact location of the crash site.

It is expected that the eCall system will reduce the emergency services’ response time and thus save hundreds of lives in the EU every year. eCall will be dormant most of the time (no mentioning on what 'most of the time' is, though) and will not allow vehicle tracking outside emergencies (no elucidation on the nature of 'emergencies' either)."
