Vodafone Automotive has also launched the Safety Pack - a solution enabling motorcycle manufacturers to offer a new security service to their customers. The major feature, dedicated to scooters and motorcycles, is the automatic emergency call generated in the case of an accident. In the case of a fall, the operator calls the rider to check whether help is needed, and if the rider does not answer the call, the operator evaluates the severity of the incident based on the digital reconstruction (received within a few seconds) and, if needed, contacts the PSAP immediately. This service is a new step towards safer mobility on the roads.
