At the 2013 Telemamatics Update Awards in Detroit, BMW walked away with the Best Safety and Solution Award. This award was given to BMW because of its recent announcement that nearly all 2014 BMW models will include a 10 year service for Assist™ eCall with enhanced Automatic Collision Notification and BMW TeleService.
This is a great safety feature to add to the 2014 models, especially with their already fantastic entertainment, power, and luxury features. It will include censors in the car that can tell the BMW TeleService where the car is and what kind of damage is done to it.
Using the Urgency Algorithm, BMWs will be able to determine the severity of an injury, if any, and will be able to alert emergency vehicles and respondents of what has happened.
Along with safety, BMW TeleService will be able to tell the driver when maintenance is needed. It will relay data to the nearest BMW Service Center by making an automatic call.
BMW is making great efforts to improve the driving experience while feeling safe in the hands of BMW TeleService.
