GSM technology improves safety on roads


When employed in road networks, GSM technology helps improve the flow of traffic and makes it possible to use intelligent telematics services that improve drivers’ safety, provide them with information, and allow their vehicles to be maintained more efficiently. Germany’s toll system for trucks operates on the basis of GSM technology. Ultramodern electronic navigation systems and emergency call systems incorporated in vehicles make wireless communication possible and have a localisation feature named “eCall” that enables drivers to track down the nearest rescue centre if need be.

The requirements that the automobile industry has to meet are extremely high today. Wireless modules made by Gemalto meet the following criteria, for instance:
