At European level the HeERO project is preparing coordinating and carrying-out pre-deployment pilot projects of the EU-wide eCall which is based on the single European emergency number 112. The consortium is testing and validating in real condition pilots the common European eCall standards defined and approved by the European Standardisation Bodies.

Over three years (January 2011 to December 2013) thanks to strong cross-border cooperation the nine European countries which form the HeERO consortium (Croatia Czech Republic Finland Germany Greece Italy The Netherlands Romania and Sweden) will carry out the start-up of an interoperable and harmonised 112 based in-vehicle emergency call system.
