HeERO (Harmonized European eCall Pilots) addresses the pan-European in-vehicle emergency call service "eCall" based on 112, the common European Emergency number. For three years (January 2011 to December 2013), the nine European countries forming the HeERO 1 consortium (Croatia, Czech Republic, Finland, Germany, Greece, Italy, The Netherlands, Romania and Sweden) carried out the start-up of an interoperable and harmonised in-vehicle emergency call system.
The overall project objective of HeERO is to prepare for the deployment of the necessary infrastructure in Europe with the aim of making the harmonised Pan-European interoperable in-vehicle emergency call service "eCall" a reality. The implementation of the eCall service at European level should take into account two major conditions on which its successful operations will depend, namely interoperability,cross border continuity and harmonisation.
The project is partially funded by the European Commission under the ICT PSP programme.
