In April 2015, the European Parliament voted for an EU-wide emergency alert system known as eCall to assist emergency services in responding to road accidents.
This means that from 31st March 2018, all new cars and light vans will have the system as standard and going forward it is anticipated that telematics will be an opt-out rather than an opt-in choice.
The eCall device will alert rescue services automatically, using the existing 112 emergency number. Basic data will be sent only when an accident occurs. The technology was first proposed in 2012, but legislation was delayed amid privacy concerns.
After negotiations between MEPs and EU governments it was agreed that eCall would provide only basic data such as:
- Type of vehicle
- Fuel used
- Time of accident
The European Commission says “Installation of the device is likely to add about £72 to the cost of a new car.”
