Honda will start equipping an on-board emergency report system with their car navigation system in the “Accord Hybrid” that will be out this coming summer.
When an air bag is activated by the shock of an accident, the on-board emergency system will automatically report the accident to HELPNET, run by JAPAN MAYDAY SERVICE CO., LTD, and police and firefighters will be notified.
Notification will not only be of the accident itself, but also accurate positioning by GPS, which air bag in the car was used, deceleration details, and if the car was subjected to multiple shocks or not will be reported.
With Honda’s emergency report system, information of the details of accidents will be reported more accurately and more quickly.
The system can also be employed in the event of a sudden incapacitating illness or condition.
