One of the factors which tend to make the situation worse after a bike accident is the rescue unit response. When thinking about crashes in the city area, things are rather simple, but with riders driving alone in the countryside, mountains and other remote areas, time is of the essence.
The RiderEcall is a monitoring device with two modules: one of them is installed on the bike with the included mounting system, and the other sensor is easily attached to any type and make of motorcycle helmet. The bike-side unit also comes with an included power cord for a 12V DC bike socket and is waterproof.
The head unit is encased in rubber and it is shielded against water, dust, cold (-20° Celsius) and heat (+60° Celsius). The helmet module monitors several values such as atypical acceleration and especially deceleration, bike tilt and helmet shocks. In case the recorded parameters exceed certain values, the Schuberth RiderEcall monitoring unit triggers the bike-mounted SOS device.
The SOS unit comes with a SIM card and unique registration number and is in constant contact with the GPS satellites and the phone network. It will automatically call the emergency center and provide the GPS coordinates.
The Schuberth RiderEcall monitoring is based on a yearly subscription, and that's how, each rider can be individually identified in case of an SOS call. Additional medical data made available at registration helps the rescue teams respond faster and more accurately to each emergency case.
Given the many health conditions to be encountered among riders, proper ID helps eliminate potentially harmful treatments at the crash site (allergies, various intolerance syndromes and so on).
The Schuberth RiderEcall also comes with proximity and low battery sensors, and a manual SOS button for rider activation. Schuberth has not announced the subscription service pricing per year, but this info is expected soon.
