GM’s OnStar today announced a significant milestone for in-vehicle safety and emergency medical response. Over the course of the past 12 years, its Automatic Crash Response technology has aided subscribers and others on the nation’s roadways in more than 100,000 crash incidents. The ability of OnStar to pinpoint the GPS location of the crash and convey to emergency responders the magnitude of the incident has assisted in the dispatch of the appropriate level of response from emergency service personnel.
OnStar’s crash response capabilities have evolved significantly over the past 12 years. The enhancements to the service now allow the technology to provide real-time data about the type and severity of the crash to OnStar’s dedicated emergency team. OnStar advisors relay this crash data, including the number, direction and severity of impacts, airbag deployment, and rollover information to the appropriate 911 emergency call center.
