Personalised emergency call (PeCall)

Funding information


Project duration: 01.12.2018 – 31.12.2019

Project concept

Initial situation

In an emergency, seconds are crucial. Every year, there are over 3,000 traffic fatalities and over 2.6 million recorded traffic accidents in Germany. The transmission of emergency data can save lives. That is why the "eCall" system is mandatory for all new vehicles. In the event of an accident, an emergency call is triggered - but it remains unknown who and how many people need help. Equally little is known about rescue-relevant characteristics such as age, previous illnesses, medication intolerances, etc.

Target groups and their benefits

The PeCall project, which aims to develop software and hardware for transmitting data to control centres in the event of traffic accidents, is aimed at all motorists in Germany as well as rescue services and their organisations.

Project goal

The PeCall project has therefore gone one step further and developed an innovative encryption and transmission technology to securely transmit the individual emergency data for each vehicle occupant in one sentence. Regardless of whether it is their own vehicle, the owner or passengers. This enables more efficient first aid with improved quality and saves time and costs.

Role of ISOB

ISOB supports as external scientific accompanying research, among others in project coordination, reporting, marketing and risk analysis.
