With a discretionary “Intelligent Emergency Call”, BMW Motorrad is charity a motorcycle eCall complement for a initial time. Fast assistance in a box of an collision or an puncture situation.

Posted on 02. May, 2016 by in BMW Canada


Getting assistance to a stage of an collision or puncture as quick as
probable can save lives. This relates generally to motorcyclists.
For this reason BMW Motorrad has grown a discretionary “Intelligent
Emergency Call” complement that is dictated to get assistance to a accident
or puncture stage as quick as possible.

In a box of an accident, a vehicle-integrated eCall system
can make a disproportion between life and death. As already shown in
2011 as partial of a pan-European eCall hearing involving BMW vehicles,
puncture services were means to respond some-more fast and get to the
stage of a collision 40 to 50 percent faster. The European
Commission in assign of a hearing during a time, estimated that using
an eCall complement would save adult to 2,500 lives each year also saving
€ 26 billion in a process.

eCall was used for a initial time in BMW automobiles in 1999 in
Europe. In 2007, a BMW Group extended this reserve complement by
substantiating an intelligent and cross-border call center
infrastructure. From 2018, eCall will turn imperative for all new
cars. Thanks to a synergy effects with BMW Automobiles a system
is approaching to be accessible for a initial time in a BMW motorcycle
ex works as an choice from commencement of 2017. 

Satellite-supported localisation of a puncture site

In a box of an puncture or an accident, a intelligent
eCall system, that is possibly automatically or manually triggered,
sends out a position data, i.e. a coordinates of a motorcycle
collision site, to a competent BMW Call Center to trigger the
rescue chain. The stream position as good as information for
last a instruction of transport are transmitted to simplify
locating a motorcyclist in hard-to-find locations such as motorway junctions.

eCall requires a tie to a mobile phone network in sequence to
trigger a rescue chain. In a “intelligent puncture call” option,
a tie is determined around a henceforth commissioned mobile
communication unit. For a tie no specific mobile user is
required. All that is required is during slightest one operational mobile
provider. The use will be done accessible in all European countries.


The intelligent puncture call takes 3 scenarios into account:

Scenario 1: Automatic triggering in a box of a bad tumble / collision.

The puncture call is automatically triggered but time
delay, promulgation a summary to a competent BMW Call Center. The
collision victim/rider is taken caring of by a BMW Call Center via
audio tie until a puncture use arrives. Help is sent
out in any box even if there is no response. A arrangement in the
instrument cluster shows that a eCall has been initiated. An
acoustic vigilance is also set off. In this box a supplement cannot
cancel a puncture call any more.

Scenario 2: Automatic triggering in a box of a teenager tumble / collision.

In this box a puncture call is usually triggered after 25
seconds before promulgation a summary to a BMW Call Center. If no help
is required after usually a non-serious accident, a accident
victim/rider has a eventuality of cancelling a puncture call at
a press of a button. If he does not cancel, a rescue sequence is
instituted as in unfolding 1. A arrangement in a instrument cluster
shows that a eCall has been initiated. An acoustic vigilance is also
set off.

Scenario 3: Manual triggering by dire a button

In this box a eCall is triggered manually by dire a SOS
symbol on a right handlebar end, e.g. for job assistance for other
highway users in need. A summary is sent to a BMW Call Center and a
voice tie is established. A voice tie is imperative if
a eCall was triggered manually before serve measures are
initiated. Here too, a collision victim/rider is also given the
eventuality to cancel a puncture call during a press of a symbol or
by branch off a ignition. The intelligent puncture call can only
be triggered manually when a motorcycle is still with the
ignition on.

 The “intelligent puncture call” complement recognises
non-emergency situations

The puncture call is not triggered automatically in
non-emergency situations (e.g. if a bike falls over in a
still position or in accidents during low speeds with no other
trade user involved, a startle to a bike when roving over a
pothole or while off-road roving (e.g. tiny jumps or roving over

Ergonomically designed control section featuring loudspeaker and microphone

The “intelligent puncture call” choice is located on a right
side of a handlebar and is both ergonomic and compact. In addition
to a cover-protected SOS symbol used for triggering or cancelling
an puncture call, a microphone and loudspeaker have also been integrated.

Sophisticated situational showing sensors

Sensors on a motorcycle detect that eventuality occurred. A crash
sensor detects events such as collisions with another car or
crashing into an obstruction. A banking angle sensor detects high
and low-siders, i.e. that position a motorcycle is in.

Native orator voice tie to a BMW call center

The intelligent puncture call system, accessible in a BMW
motorcycle for a initial time, constitutes a reward use with
general coverage. When a voice tie is made, a rider
can promulgate with a BMW Call Center in his local language.
This is a stand-alone underline that is rarely effective in an
puncture situation. The discretionary “intelligent puncture call” will
be rolled out in Germany initial and afterwards also introduced fast to
serve European markets and models.
