Traffic congestions and non-reactions from drivers in the path of emergency vehicles often lead to unsafe traffic situations and even accidents. They can also be the difference between life and death for the patients in need and road.
With Monotch’s solution, the range of emergency vehicle alerts are extended and broadcasted directly inside the vehicle, giving drivers ample amount of time to make the right decisions to provide save way.
HOW IT WORKS
When emergency vehicles are in action, the onboard units sends the (anonymized) vehicle positional data to its service platform, which is then forwarded service providers via TLEX. Service providers can then warn its users of the incoming emergency vehicle that are in the vicinity or on the user’s route via the OBU /APP.
The proven benefits for this use-case includes the reduction in emergency assistance response time, extending the range of emergency vehicle alerts and the improvement of road safety.
- 0.8% reduction in fatalities and a 0.8% reduction in injuries on road users
- 2.1% reduction in accidents involving emergency vehicles
