GM to Offer Automatic Crash Notification

September 24, 2002

Partnered with OnStar, GM is introducing new technology designed to save lives by getting the right emergency resources to crashes faster. In an effort to help 911 centers dispatch the appropriate life-saving staff and equipment to crash scenes faster, GM will begin adding an advanced automatic crash notification (AACN) system to vehicles equipped with OnStar. OnStar, an embedded in-vehicle safety and security communications system, is automatically notified within seconds when a subscriber’s air bag deploys. In addition, using a collection of sensors, the system will automatically call for help if the vehicle is involved in a moderate to severe frontal, rear or side-impact crash, regardless of airbag deployment.
