Sierra Wireless’ smart automotive modules have been selected by Itelma, a manufacturer and distributor of automotive equipment, to enable cellular connectivity and service delivery for its emergency response technology, which will be installed AvtoVAZ’s LADA vehicles – the first production cars in Russia to carry the emergency system.

The Itelma ERA-GLONASS emergency response unit automatically locates a vehicle and transmits SOS signals through mobile networks to responder services during an emergency. In the event of an accident, information transmitted contains the exact coordinates, time and severity of the accident, as well as the vehicle registration number. The driver can also send a signal by clicking the appropriate button.

 “Our smart automotive modules and cloud-based AirVantage IoT Platform provide an advanced automotive solution for next-generation vehicles,” said Dan Schieler, Senior Vice President of OEM Solutions for Sierra Wireless.

 “We are pleased to collaborate with Itelma and look forward to working closely with them on their expanding cellular connectivity requirements.”
