Beijing – Bosch, the leading global supplier of automotive technology and service announced jointly with HealthLink, the Chinese leading provider of the third-party emergency service management, that based on Bosch’s expertise on sensor technology and the powerful emergency service of HealthLink, the two parties signed a memorandum of cooperation in the afternoon of March 31st, 2017. Furthermore, Bosch Connected Devices and Solutions and HealthLink officially launched a remarkably smart system - i Rescue with their shared commitment to safeguard Chinese drivers’ safety.
Intelligent rescue ensures Chinese automotive safety
The “i Rescue” system combines hardware, software and service. In this system, the emergency service of Healthlink is embedded into the retrofit eCall, the smart sensor device from Bosch Connected Devices and Solutions. It uses acceleration sensors and intelligent embedded algorithms to detect an accident and then send data to a smartphone app via Bluetooth. This data is sent to a back-end IT system that can determine actions, such as a call center calling the driver to provide assistance, or in extreme cases making an emergency call. So when a car has an accident, if it is fitted with “i Rescue” system, this can automatically and quickly contact the emergency service center – speeding up a response, and potentially saving lives. Furthermore, it’s a cost-effective solution and plugs into a standard 12V DC socket, so that it can be easily and quickly retrofitted to any type of car.
BCDS has already cooperated with several insurance companies and professional emergency companies in both European and American market. “The cooperation with HealthLink enables the seamless connection of intelligent technology from Bosch Connected Devices and Solutions with emergency services in the Chinese automotive market. This greatly contributes to our vision “invented for connected life” with intelligent sensor technology.” said Dr. Markus Lang, the General Manager of Bosch Connected Devices and Solutions. The jointly launched product “i Rescue” is expected to deliver to Chinese market in the second quarter of this year via insurance companies, car dealers and some other business channels.
24/7 terminal services to ensure drivers’ safety
Apart from the world leading smart sensor technology from Bosch, the powerful resources of HealthLink creates the strong backup for i Rescue. Its incomparable rescue network covers as many as 2,800 administrative regions above the county level across the whole country. More than 1,000 internet hospitals with first aid qualification are built up and will benefit over 80% of Chinese population. The president of HealthLink Service Mr.Deng Juhan added that, “The i Rescue will be the key enabler to drive the implementation of driving emergency service in Chinese automotive market.”
