The Congress will take place from 19 to 22 June 2017 at the Strasbourg Convention Centre. Under the theme “ITS Beyond Borders”, the Congress will focus on people and intelligent mobility users.

Live 30-minute demonstrations: The eCall Journey

The Satellite Applications Catapult will be running live 30-minute demonstrations of the eCall Journey – the emergency call system, from car to control room. For the first time, it will also show the potential future of eCall for powered two-wheelers (motorcycles), lorries and coaches as part of the I_HeERO project, funded by the European Commission and the demonstration. The I_HeERO team will present an update on eCall development progress, including the challenges they have addressed in developing the system for particular vehicles, such as those carrying hazardous loads or locations where terrestrial communication is not possible, as well as the integration of Earth observation data with Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) software. Demonstration vehicles including trucks, bikes and cars will be on the stand showcasing e-Call and a demonstration system for the control room (PSAP) linked to Earth observation software. Groups of 10-40 people can attend each session.
