Abstract: The European Union Parliament introduced the legislation EU-2015/758 which includes the obligation of emergency call system equipped vehicles in the European countries with the starting date of 31 March 2018. After the regulation is started to be applied, new system updates and modifications in the vehicle systems are released. Emergency call (eCall) system can be applied to the vehicle structures with different types such as manual eCall device, automatic eCall device including control unit and/or measurement unit. When manual eCall device is triggered manually, automatic eCall device is activated automatically while the accident occurs. eCall device measurement unit is generally integrated with the telematic display in smart vehicles when the eCall control unit is set up separately. From this point of view, possible mounting locations of eCall control unit in passenger cars are analysed in detail via communication sensitivity and electrical connections based on signal quality and cost differences in different mounting positioning.
