PSA has signed an agreement with Touring Club of Switzerland (TCS) to launch telematics on Peugeot and Citroen models in Switzerland from March 2010.
Services include eCall and bCall.
In the event of an accident, an eCall SMS (with location data) is sent to TCS, who process it and contact the PSAP (Public Safety Answering Point).
eCall and bCall voice calls can be triggered both manually or automatically and are routed to the TCS call centre who provide roadside assistance.
TCS has worked with Alabus AG to implement this solution.
At the Geneva Motor Show, Peugeot Citroen and Touring Club of Switzerland will showcase their new telematics partnership.
