eDriving app gains collision detection and emergency response services

Date: 13 April 2022   |   Author: Sean Keywood

Collision detection and emergency response services are being added to eDriving's Mentor driver safety app.

The new functionality is the result of a collaboration with Bosch Service Solutions and Sfara.

On-device crash detection technology developed by Sfara is designed to recognize collisions and suppresses false positives, while Bosch's international emergency call service centres facilitate an emergency response process to dispatch assistance and/or support drivers in cases of an emergency.

A Personal SOS function also assists individuals who feel unwell or that their safety is at risk.

eDriving founder and CEO Ed Dubens said: "As a result of the collaboration between eDriving, Bosch and Sfara, organizations can protect their employees and contractors 24/7 from such circumstances should a crash occur while driving for work purposes. 

"Of course, the primary goal of driver risk management is to prevent collisions from occurring in the first place, but this technology means that, if a collision does happen, organizations can feel confident that prompt emergency response is moments away, and that their commitment to employees' personal safety and security is clearly demonstrated."

Bosch Service Solutions head of mobility services Stefan Gross said: "This collaboration combines cutting-edge technology and advanced services to a unique emergency solution.

"We are excited to integrate our emergency assistance services into Mentor and help build a truly international smartphone-based emergency solution."

Sfara CEO Erik Goldman said: "We are thrilled to bring our patented crash detection and personal SOS technologies to this world-class collaboration, further enhancing the award-winning Mentor smartphone app with integrated, life-saving capabilities.

"As a result, Mentor customers around the globe will be able to drive with the peace of mind that if an unfortunate collision occurs, their drivers and contractors will be supported by professionals."
