Hungary signs eCall Memorandum of Understanding
(06/06/2011) Hungary today signed the eCall Memorandum of Understanding (eCall MoU). It is the 22 Member State which by its signature commits to the timely deployment of eCall in Europe.
In case of a serious accident, an eCall-equipped car automatically calls the appropriate emergency call centre even if nobody in the car is able to make a phone call. The eCall device then sends a set of basic data about the accident. The most important data are the accurate coordinates of the crash site. Knowing the exact location of the accident scene, the rescue teams can arrive there much faster, and their arrival TIME SAVED translates into LIVES SAVED!
