The members of the i_HeERO project have launched an online survey to gain a better understanding of riders’ expectations of eCall devices for powered-two wheelers and the nature of accident scenarios across Europe.
The i_HeERO survey will run until end of May 2016. Its results will help researchers to gain insights into what motorcycle and scooter riders understand by a potential eCall solution for powered-two wheelers, as well as to understand certain factors about powered-two wheeler users’ accident experiences.
No personal data will be collected in the process and all of the answers will be kept confidential.
The survey is available at http://iheero.hreconnect.eu/s/A3C01/
What are eCall devices?
eCall technology allows for an emergency call to be made, either automatically or manually, from a crashed vehicle immediately after a road collision has occurred.
A recently published European Regulation (Regulation 2015/758) makes eCall devices mandatory in cars in Europe as of April 2018.
About the i_HeERO research project
The i_HeERO project is the 3rd large-scale project in the series supported by the European Commission.
The HeERO projects are to lead to the implementation of an emergency call solution to improve road safety in Europe. To learn more about IHEERO please click here.
