eCall – ensuring a fast rescue chain to save lives

eCall – ensuring a fast rescue chain to save lives

With the vision to make road traffic safer, various governments worldwide have made automated emergency call systems mandatory in every newly registered car.

eCall systems should guarantee rapid assistance to motorists involved in a serious collision by manually or automatically initiating an emergency call (E112) and transmitting supporting data to start a fast rescue chain.

As every minute counts Rohde & Schwarz eCall testing solutions are designed to help achieve the future Vision Zero of no fatalities or serious injuries involving road traffic. The solutions ensure 100% reliable functioning of eCall modules within today’s relevant global communication infrastructures.

eCall (emergency call)

Your challenges:

  • Ensure a 100% reliably functioning eCall module that rapidly sends an alert and enables stabile communications between rescue services and the vehicle involved in the collision
  • Deliver the necessary rescue data (e.g. position, direction, vehicle details)
  • Fulfill various global conformity standards (eCall, Korean eCall, ERA GLONASS)
  • Keep pace with future frequency technologies, such as the shift from today’s GSM, UTMS based eCall infrastructure to LTE based communications (NG eCall)

Our solution:

  • A test setup enabling various, ready-to-use test scenarios reflecting real-world conditions
  • Simulates a public safety answering point (PSAP), making it possible to automatically and repeatedly run all test sequences
  • Simultaneously simulates both the GNSS signal to test the module’s ability to determine the exact positioning and the different mobile communications networks to test the module’s ability to provide the correct minimum set of data (MSD) and establish communications with emergency services
  • Combines all relevant (GSM, UMTS) and future relevant (e.g. LTE, 4G) frequency bands in one solution
  • Meets the relevant global eCall standards to prepare for certification

Your benefits:

  • Reduced COMPLEXITY of an all-in-one test solution offering multiple automated tests of all necessary eCall frequencies from GNSS to mobile communication standards
  • Reduced COST of a single solution suitable for various global eCall compliance standards (such as eCall, Korean eCall, ERA-GLONASS)
  • Safe INVESTMENT in a solution for running tests on today’s mobile infrastructure, tomorrow’s next generation LTE based eCall (NG eCall) and even the future 5G

FICOSA

Laura Tantinyà, RF Engineering Supervisor, FICOSA

"Rohde & Schwarz was always the first choice when Ficosa was looking for a solution to validate our ERA-Glonass automotive products. From the very beginning, Rohde & Schwarz put all its expertise into advising, the right equipment and tools to ease the path to certification. We, at Ficosa, really value the proper training and sales support provided by Rohde & Schwarz – it makes a difference with high-tech products."

Ublox

Rita Puntaferro, Senior Manager Verification Lab Ublox Italy

"During the development phase of eCall solution, we needed to test and verify our module. Rohde & Schwarz proposed setting up a cooperation and a joint testing session. We found a great opportunity to start testing in an early phase. Both of us could benefit from this cooperation and shorten the time to market. It was a great opportunity and we are now regularly using Rohde & Schwarz equipment to test our eCall/ERA-GLONASS solutions."
