New plug-in for collision detection and analysis of driving
Bosch Connected Devices and Solutions have announced the Telematics eCall Plug (TEP), a retrofit plug-in sensor device. It delivers precise event data such as driving behaviour and crash detection for telematics, fleet management and insurance applications. The smart sensor device easily plugs into a standard 12V car cigarette lighter socket.
Data from the TEP enables innovative usage-based business models, e.g. for insurance purposes. However, it is also set up to be adopted by fleet operators and automobile clubs. The device’s eCall function registers car crash severity and can help to save lives by enabling faster emergency response times.
