The vehicle location can be transmitted when an eCall is triggered through airbag deployment. In the event that the operator is unable to respond to the eCall, the vehicle's position at the time of the call's initiation will be automatically provided.
Navigation systems can be represented as a map, display and software. RoadScape GPS positional information on the CAN bus provides an accurate indication of location, direction and speed. What is more, there is no need for a separate antenna and GPS chipset.
The RoadScape GPS Module converts heading into an 8 point compass. It then publishes that information on the CAN bus. The Compass feature now becomes a simple display, eliminating the issues associated with location programming and magnetic compasses.
Location based services can be provided using location data published on the CAN bus by the RoadScape GPS Module.
