Provide in vehicle warnings of approaching emergency vehicles

Traffic congestions and non-reactions from drivers in the path of emergency vehicles often lead to unsafe traffic situations and even accidents. They can also be the difference between life and death for the patients in need and road.

With Monotch’s solution, the range of emergency vehicle alerts is extended and broadcasted directly inside the vehicle, giving drivers ample time to make the right decisions to provide a safe way.

How emergency vehicle warning works

When emergency vehicles are in action, the onboard units send the (anonymised) vehicle positional data to its service platform, then forward service providers via TLEX. Service providers can then warn their users of the incoming emergency vehicles in the vicinity or on the user’s route via the OBU /APP.
