Supporting 112 projects

- HELP 112 pilot project on the design, implementation and execution of the transfer of GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) data during an E112 call to the Public Service Answering Point
- A pan-European in-vehicle eCall which, in case of car crashes, calls 112;
- Project Reach 112 looks at alternative ways of communication to traditional voice telephony (such as real-time text coversation), which will improve access to emergency services for people with hearing or speech impairments or people with serious injuries;
- A project run by the World Health Organisation (WHO), which assessed Emergency Medical Services' (EMS) systems.
