Automatic emergency call saves lives: Daimler expands Infineon eSIMs use

News

It can save lives, which is why the automatic emergency call feature "“ termed eCall "“ will be mandatory for all new car and light commercial vehicle models in the European Union from March 31, 2018.

Info

It will therefore be integrated in future in an estimated 20 million new vehicles annually.

The aim of the eCall system is to shorten the time between an accident and the arrival of the emergency services by up to 50% throughout Europe, and reduce the number of fatalities on the road by around 10%. The automatic eCall can also prevent serious accidents from going unnoticed. In the event of an accident, eCall is used to independently send an emergency call to the emergency call centre via the mobile network. Details such as the location, the precise time of the accident, the number of passengers and the type of fuel are transmitted.

"Mercedes me connect" "“ Daimler builds on eSIMs from Infineon

Leading car manufacturers like Daimler already use eSIM security controllers from Infineon for the emergency call feature. The Mercedes-Benz "Mercedes me connect" system, for example, not only offers the emergency call functionality required by law ("Mercedes-Benz eCall"), but also services that go much further. These include accident management, breakdown and maintenance management, remote vehicle diagnostics, and remote services for customers.

The voice and data connection in these telematics services is controlled by a device in the vehicle usually known as the telematics control unit or connectivity module. The latest generation of connectivity modules from Mercedes-Benz is based on a telephone module that can log on to 2G, 3G and 4G mobile networks. The vehicle establishes a mobile connection via the network and accesses data (such as traffic data or infotainment services) from the Internet. A SIM card would normally be required to identify the vehicle in the mobile network. This is now done by a firmly built in eSIM chip from Infineon.
