Telefonica Czech Republic participates in eCall crash tests

Monday 23 September 2013 | 09:21 CET | News
Telefonica Czech Republic is the main partner in the project to test the eCall automatic emergency call system, which will be built into all new car models in EU countries from October 2015. As soon as airbags are activated in an accident, the eCall system automatically calls the emergency services. The system was tested in a trial crash in Prague on 18 September, as a part of a seminar organised by the Ministry of Transport. The crash test was provided by the Czech Technical University in Prague in cooperation with Skoda Auto, Telefonica Czech Republic and the Fire Rescue Service.
