Sensors come into play when a vehicle experiences a crash. As the g force is measured to determine the severity of the incident, airbags trigger and authorities are contacted depending on how the crash plays out.
Full Data Catalog
Our data catalog on Airtable contains technical information specific to each data category, including its properties and their production availability.
Many points are captured during a crash data report. These include the impact area within the vehicle and if there was an incident in the area, as a warning for other drivers. Force sensors can determine how much deceleration the vehicle experienced in the crash too. All of this crash data is captured instantly and sent remotely over the air to authorities and fleet managers to act promptly.
Crash data is vital for safety and handling a road traffic incident. During a crash, the sensor and location data is sent to emergency services either automatically or by using the e-call feature on most modern vehicles. From here, the ambulance service can attend to the incident and provide treatment to injured occupants as soon as possible. With an improved response rate comes an improved outcome for all parties involved.
