Emergency call system is an automatic emergency call system for motor vehicles. The purpose of the in-vehicle system is to automatically or manually send a call for help to the public answering platform when the vehicle encounters a traffic accident or the occupants encounter an unexpected situation, which can provide information such as the location of the vehicle, shorten the time for emergency rescue in an accident by initiating rescue operations more quickly, reduce casualties and traffic congestion and reduce medical costs.
