1 eCall for Powered Two Wheelers Opportunities and Challenges European Motorcyclists Forum,Working session 3:“Opportunities and Challenges”6 March 2014, BrusselseCall for PTW: the OPPORTUNITIES may seem obvious – positive contribution to reduce fatalities and consequences of severe due to reduce time in recue operations. The CHALLENGES may not seem obvious at a first glance: eCall will be introduced for cars soon, so one could assume there is already best practise and things will be fairly simple.
2 How eCall for Cars works MSD & VOICEMSD & VOICEVOICEVOICENetworkVOICEI also suppose, most of you know how eCall works. Nevertheless lets have a look at the eCall scenario:explain scenarioNow it seems all set and we only need to replace the car in the scenario with a motorcycle?Let do soTraffic Information
3 How PTW eCall works TRIGGERING? Traffic Information Explain scenario MSD & (VOICE?)MSD & (VOICE?)(VOICE?)(VOICE?)NetworkTRIGGERING?VOICEExplain scenarioVoice connection is a difference – explain in next chart detailsTriggering main issue will explain more details laterTraffic Information
4 Motorcycle eCall a new & different challenge ?DifferenceMotorcycle and rider separateForces vary to vehicle & rider post crashLocation vehicle & rider vary post crashAccident recognition is complexStability criteriaSensor typesOmni directional sensingVoice connection likely unreliableAmbient noiseDistance rider-vehicleCommonRescue chainCommunication StandardsRequirement power supplyInfrastructure / business case
5 Triggering- main challenge eCall triggering usually with airbag/acceleration sensorsDecades of experience with triggeringWell defined accident scenarios with corresponding parameterseCall triggering not defined (no best practise)Accident scenarios are not well defined and quite complexRider & motorcycle will be separated after crash (injuries?)Substantial Unsolved IssuesFOCUS: define minimum requirementsAs we can see, the main difference is complexity of accident scenarios. Consequently recognizing an accident creating injuries to the rider is the main challenge
6 PTW eCall is most complex OEM / maker is liable for its product:OEM produces (PTW) vehicleseCall system needs to be in the vehicle (liability & quality& supply chain)Systems not linked to vehicle are out of OEM control and responsibilityeCall is complex: and therefore, allow me a personal remark:“I am a motorcyclist and a car driver at the same time. For me like so many other bikers in the end eCall is supposed to call help if we are unable to do so by our self, regardless car or motorcycle.Since MC eCall is more complex, as a Biker I expect to understand beforehand what the system can do and what not. “Since the motorcycle maker is only liable for his own products and the communication to users for his own product, it can only be the vehicle and its components itself.Research: Limitations and Minimum requirements
7 PTW Industry StrategyDefinition of a PTW eCall system and its requirementsACEM research proposal to EC to define Standards for PTW eCallParticipation of OEM’s in Horizion 2020 project call for PTW safety
8 Minimum requirement – General To make sure that:Users understand what system can do and what notManufacturers are to supply a simple but robust functionality (PTW eCall standards)Base for test and conformity requirements are necessaryThe OEM - responsible only for the components and functionality of his own system on the vehicle, not for the overall functionThe borderlines for false calls - to be discussed with relevant stakeholders
9 Minimum requirement - System components Automatic & manual triggering systemeCall box or components with the necessary software (depending on the structure of the specific system/concept) and wiringeCall button for terminationIndicators for the actual status and the current process step of an activated eCallGeo location system (GPS)Network Access DeviceThe MSD + eCall flag (standard for MSD for the transmission via 112)
10 Indicative Motorcycle eCall Roadmap 1. Define minimum requirements2. Define open issues3. Evaluate potential solutionsDONEONGOING4. Discussion with stakeholdersNEXT STEP5. RESEARCH6. Standardisation7. Technical concept development8. Market information9. Series development10. Market introductionFOLLOWING
11 Robust & Reliable PTW eCall Thank you for your attention!Still a stretch of road ahead of us
