Pan-European eCall Trial of NXP and Partners Concludes in Brussels

This week sees the successful conclusion of a field trial designed to prove that the European emergency call system ‘eCall’ for vehicles is ready for mass deployment across Europe. The trial, which was initiated by NXP Semiconductors N.V., involved major industry players including BMW, IBM, Allianz OrtungsServices, Deutsche Telekom, Dekra, and European automobile clubs such as Touring, ANBW, AvD, and UAMK. Three cars equipped with NXP’s telematics solution ATOP (Automotive Telematics On-Board Unit Platform) drove a total of 16,000 kilometers through sixteen different EU countries. During a two-week period, the telematics boxes sent out 15,000 eCalls via the mobile networks of Deutsche Telekom and its roaming partners; the eCalls were received and processed by IBM, Allianz OrtungsServices, and BMW servers or call centers.
