eCall Technical Workshop
On 15 October 2012, innovITS Advance, ERTICO - ITS Europe, and ITS-UK held the first UK eCall Technical Workshop at the innovITS Advance facility.
The purpose of the workshop was to raise awareness on the current status of eCall technological development. Attendees received the current information on this Priority Action of the EU's ITS Directive and were be invited to discuss the future of eCall within this context.
Provisional and confirmed presenters at the technical workshop included relevant industrial partners, PSAP operators and European Commission representatives as well as other interested parties, with invitations being sent to a range of high-level participants whose input was of great added-value to the workshop and its conclusions.
During the day, participants were invited to take part in a live eCall demonstration on the MIRA test tracks. The audience therefore had a chance to see the 'behind-the-scenes' of eCall and most were impressed by the state-of-the-art technology and rapidity with which the call was issued and treated.
