ECALL & ERA-GLONASS

The installation of automated, eCall emergency call technology has been mandatory for new car models since April 1st, 2018. According to EU regulation 2015/758, car manufacturers must integrate the eCall system in all new models – passenger cars (M1) and light commercial vehicles (N1). In order to be approved, newly introduced eCall systems must demonstrate the requirements set out in EU Regulation 2017/79.

ACCORDING TO EU 2017/79

  • UN-ECE pre-test
  • ECall pre-test
  • CEN EN 16454 / ETSI TS 103412 end-to-end
  • Compliance testing
  • ETSI TS 126269 in-band modem test
  • ECall protocol test (GCF WI147)
  • Individual advice on the emergency call system
