On Tuesday, 24 October 2017 the Greek partners of the I_HeERO – “Infrastructure Harmonised eCall European Pilot” project will present their results at the Hellenic Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport facilities, in Athens (Anastaseos 2 & Tsigante, GR-156 69 Papagos, Greece). The event is part of eCall for HGVs Demo Tour, organised in several European cities, including Athens, to showcase the potential of eCall to save lives following traffic accidents involving Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGVs), buses and coaches.
The main objectives of the event in Athens are:
- To present the Ι_HeERO final achievements and outcomes;
- To highlight the road safety benefits of eCall for HGVs and passenger cars;
- To show the road safety benefits an electronic consignment note (eCMR) can bring to eCall for HGVs by providing information on transported goods.
During the event you will have the opportunity to learn about the road safety benefits of eCall for HGVs thanks to a hands-on demonstration with an eCall equipped truck. In addition, eCall for passenger cars and an eCall enabled PSAP will also be showcased as a result of the Greek partners’ effort towards the implementation of the I_HeERO objectives.
The event is organised by the ITS Hellas member, ICCS, in cooperation with the Hellenic Minstry of Infrastructure and Transport and is expected to attract a wide variety of participants from private and public institutions, local authorities, academic and research communities, manufacturers, road transport professionals and end users associations.
