The largest conference on the pan-European eCall in Germany will take place for the fifth time on 23 – 24 September in Berlin. Political representatives of the European Commission, HeERO 1 + 2 project partners and other stakeholders will present their agenda on eCall implementation, interoperability, eCall outside Europe and additional services.

The first day of the conference covers three main topics. First, political representatives from the European Commission and other stakeholders summarize the current status of the eCall implementation. In this context, Andy Rooke (ERTICO) will point out the main results of the previous projects HeERO 1 and HeERO 2 and introduce the new project I_HeERO.

The second theme focuses on PSAPs and the necessary infrastructure in order to realize the pan-European eCall. In this regard, the required PSAP Conformity Assessment is discussed from a technical and legal perspective.

Finally, this day covers perspectives from the automotive industry. A special focus here is the extension of the eCall to powered two-wheelers (P2W). After the lectures, the visitors will have the opportunity to network and address questions during the evening reception.

The second day the conference will have a future-oriented approach. Here, the speakers focus on possible effects of the eCall implementation on further applications. The main topics are third-party-services (TPS) as well as additional ITS-applications that can be exploited with the eCall-introduction. Moreover, possible business cases for the future are presented. During the second part of this day, technical requirements of PSAPs and possible solutions are addressed.

The event is complemented by a subsequent exhibition with an eCall car as well as simulation and testing equipment, IVS Hardware and other specific eCall solutions.
