eCall seminar:
Profound and vivid insights on a current issue

“Speech Quality Testing on eCall”: At the beginning of December 2014 HEAD acoustics hosted a seminar on the topic of emergency call (eCall). The one and a half day seminar addressed various aspects of speech quality of emergency call systems in vehicles (eCall). Currently car manufacturers and suppliers are working all out on that topic not least because of legal reasons.
Nearly 20 participants registered for the seminar, which delivered profound and vivid insights. The presentations dealt with fundamentals in speech quality testing for hands-free, the current status of relevant standards such as Russian ERA GLONASS or ITU-T P.emergency as well as the question regarding necessary considerations on future implementations. “For us, it was very important to cover all relevant aspects of optimizing speech quality testing for eCall systems”, says Frank Kettler, Manager Consulting at HEAD acoustics, who organized the seminar.
Besides the theoretical part, live tests in a driving simulator in the HEAD acoustics test rooms were conducted. So, the participants were able to understand the practical implementation and discuss the results online. For these tests HEAD acoustics provided its own developed and implemented measurement technology such as the hands-free specification ITU-T P.1100, the ERA-GLONASS GOST R55531 standard as well as new analysis methods for the assessment of the quality of eCall modules.
"The numerous and lively discussions have proven that eCall is an important topic for car manufacturer and supplier. Therefore, we are planning to repeat the seminar next year and then of course we will incorporate our latest developments and insights on this issue," says Kettler.
More information on eCall can be found in     Telecom HEADlines issue fall 2014.
