Connected car takes care in an emergency 

Connected carBT worked closely with Bosch to develop an eCall system that could help provide rapid assistance to motorists in an emergency.

The solution uses sensor technology to trigger a series of communications sessions which help individuals in distress.

If an incident occurs, a sensor detects the issue and a machine-tomachine (M2M) transaction initiates a call from the vehicle.

A person-to-machine (P2M) transaction identifies the driver and connects them to an agent in BT’s Cloud Connect platform.

The agent’s person-to-person (P2P) transaction results in help being sent to the driver via a P2M transaction.

This solution addresses EU legislation for driver safety and security. It’s a stand-out example of BT using communications to create a better world.
