At a recent industry event, Bosch and Mojio unveiled a jointly developed, IoT integrated emergency response solution.
The new offering adds crash detection and emergency call (eCall) response to an existing connected car solution from Mojio. Through the simple combination of a plug-and-play device for the vehicle’s OBD-II port and a mobile app, nearly a million consumers in North America and Europe have already upgraded their cars with Mojio’s white-label connected car solutions. These connected car offerings are deployed by Mojio’s portfolio of mobile network operator customers, including Deutsche Telekom, T-Mobile US and Telus.
The new integrated emergency response offering combines a crash detection algorithm and eCall emergency services from Bosch with Mojio’s telco-grade cloud platform and white-label mobile apps for connected cars. The end result is an enhanced safety experience that senses collisions, assesses severity and triggers the appropriate emergency response. The key benefit of this IoT solution where vehicles are directly connected to the cloud is professional help arriving sooner in the case of an accident.
For about $10 a month, this retrofit technology can be used in any vehicle, regardless of the make and model. Existing benefits include Wi-Fi connectivity for the vehicle and notifications for engine issues and recall notices to make informed decisions on maintenance and repairs. It can also locate a stolen vehicle to inform authorities and provides access to a growing range of smart, integrated services, such as on-demand roadside assistance and parking reservations. With the addition of the integrated crash detection and eCall service, drivers will soon benefit from the enhanced safety features enabled by Bosch.
