Proposed International Standards Related to AACN

The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) is a developer of open internet standards using open accessible processes. They are a large open international community of network designers, operators, vendors, and researchers concerned with the evolution of the Internet architecture and the smooth operation of the Internet.

IETF has proposed two standards related to Advanced Automatic Crash Notification:

RFC 8147 – Next Generation Pan-European eCall: This proposed standard describes how to use IP-based emergency services methods to support the next generation of the Pan-European in-vehicle emergency call service (eCall). eCall is a standardized and mandated system for a special form of emergency calls placed by vehicles, providing real-time communications and an integrated set of related data. Although this specification is designed to meet the requirements of next-generation Pan-European eCall, the specification is generic so that the technology can be reused or extended to suit requirements across jurisdictions.

RFC 8148 – Next Generation Vehicle-Initiated Calls:  This proposed standard describes how to use IP-based emergency services methods to support the next generation of emergency calls placed by vehicles (automatically in the event of a crash or serious incident, or manually invoked by a vehicle occupant) and conveying vehicle, sensor, and location data related to the crash or incident.
