The primary geographical markets of focus will include Greater China, Europe, and North America. In addition, Russia & Central Asia are expected to make a substantial contribution to the hardware market. The EU’s eCall initiative has made an automatic emergency call device a mandatory safety feature in all new car models sold.
Russia has its own system called ERA-GLONASS, which is similar to eCall and is obligatory for new car models, while Brazil was working on implementing a similar system called "SIMRAV" for monitoring and responding to traffic accidents. While the U.S. doesn't have a nationwide mandatory system like the EU's eCall, some automakers and third-party service providers offer similar services.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has also considered regulations related to vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communication for safety purposes. Furthermore, China has been exploring similar systems for vehicle safety, although the status of mandatory implementation may vary by region.
The companies below have a global presence and partnerships with automotive manufacturers and service providers worldwide. This allows them to offer their eCall solutions to different regions and adapt to local needs.
