Spirent eCall Testing
How to build a robust test regime for the development and validation of eCall components
The eCall system is expected to cut emergency response times in half, improving the outcome for people injured and reducing the number of deaths in road accidents throughout the European Union. With the system now mandatory for new vehicles, manufacturers face the challenge of another new technology to design, implement and verify.
Given the regional range of the eCall system, if it is to save lives and reduce injury then all components must demonstrate conformance to agreed performance standards and interoperability between the different emergency response centers.
This white paper describes how testing for eCall systems has been developed, and what test approaches should be adopted to ensure components work properly regardless of location.
