Germany makes a clean sweep of eSafety awards

The European consortium charged with raising awareness of the benefits of intelligent vehicles – eSafety Support – has announced the results of its first eSafety Deployment Awards. The winners are Volker Knapp of ADAC, the German motorists' group, and Wolfgang Hahn of the German ministry of transport.

ADAC promotes eCall, the pan-European emergency call system and has completed a study proving the feasibility of a cross-border eCall system, which was presented during the German presidency’s eSafety Conference in June 2007 in Berlin. ADAC has also contributed to eCall end user awareness through features in its club magazine and website. Besides eCall, ADAC has been active in other areas relating to the eSafety initiative, including electronic stability control and real-time traffic information. It has also run tests on other eSafety systems, such as lane departure warning systems and navigation systems, including crash tests.

Wolfgang Hahn is director general of the German ministry of transport, which hosted the eSafety Conference in Berlin in June. At the event, Germany pledged itself to eCall deployment by signing the eCall memorandum of understanding. The ministry has also carried out data protection studies to clarify the legal position of eCall and other eSafety applications.
