Developer of ECLIPSE car navigation brand and advanced safety systems, FUJITSU
TEN LIMITED provided an emergency call specification Telematics
Control Unit (TCU)*1 for the emergency call system live
demonstration (supported by GLONASS UNION*2, VTT, Gemalto and FUJITSU
TEN) at the ITS European Congress 2014 venue in Helsinki (Organizer:
ERTICO*3, June 16 to 19 local time).
To demonstrate the interchangeability between the European eCall system and the Russian ERA-GLONASS system, demonstrations were carried out simultaneously in Europe and Russia for the first time in the world.

To help mitigate the consequences of serious road accidents, the European Commission (EC) has adopted a proposal for a regulation concerning a type-approval requirement for deployment of the eCall system. In Russia, a technical regulation on wheeled-vehicle safety with ERA-GLONASS has been adopted and will come into force in 2015; GSM, which is the mobile communication standard in Europe, is to be adopted as the wireless communication standard. In order to enforce eCall-related standards, a pre-deployment pilot project (HeERO*4) has been promoted aggressively in European countries since 2011. We have participated in this project since 2013. These demonstration and interoperability tests are a part of HeERO’s activities.
The demonstrations verified that typically a vehicle equipped with ERA-GLONASS initiates an emergency call (eCall) to PSAP in Europe, and likewise that a vehicle equipped with eCall initiates an emergency call (ERA-GLONASS) to PSAP in Russia. Thus, the interoperability between eCall and ERA-GLONASS was confirmed.
Contributions to development of advanced safety systems through the
state-of-the-art technologies of telematics
Correspondence to the emergency call system leads to the best opportunity to introduce the telematics service which needs standard installation of the communication device to all vehicles. The telematics service makes it possible to gather and provide information which contributes to improvement of comfort, safety, convenience and satisfaction for the customer and which is a bridge linking people, vehicles and society.

"The first ever simultaneous and live emergency eCall interoperability demonstration at the 2014 European ITS Congress in Helsinki highlights the power of advanced connected car technology to improve road and driver safety."
[Evgeni Meilikhov, Development Director, ERA-GLONASS Project, GLONASS
“We were glad to demonstrate harmonized operation of ERA-GLONASS and eCall systems together with our partners ERTICO and Fujitsu Ten at the 10th ITS European Congress. Harmonization of standards and technical regulations will facilitate creation of a common safety space in Russia and EU. This will bring us closer to our common goal – saving lives on the roads.”
