San Jose, CA – May 25, 2022 – Mojio, a leading connected mobility platform and SaaS solutions provider, announced today that the company is now RapidSOS Ready, enabling the real-time delivery of telematics data and insights to 911 in the event of a vehicle crash. At a time when the NHTSA is projecting the highest percentage increase in traffic fatalities in the Fatality Analysis Reporting System’s history, Mojio and RapidSOS’ partnership will now securely and automatically link life-saving telematics data to over 5,200 Emergency Communications Centers nationwide.
Mojio’s Automatic Crash Notification service leverages a crash detection algorithm from Bosch that is embedded on a 4G LTE OBD-II device to identify and measure a collision event in real-time. In the event of a crash, a contextual data package is transmitted to Mojio’s cloud platform and then shared with 911 via RapidSOS’s emergency response data platform. Through this real-time sequence of events, 911 communicators and first responders are empowered with life-saving information, including the time and location of the crash event, the direction of travel and crash severity, and vehicle identification information, such as the vehicle’s make, model, year and color.
“Becoming RapidSOS Ready highlights our commitment to using our connected mobility technologies to tackle the national crisis of rising traffic fatalities,” said Mojio CEO, Kenny Hawk. “Our joint solution is affordable, scalable and, most importantly, provides drivers and their passengers with life-saving emergency services in the event of a crash.”
“We’re united in our commitment to create a safer, stronger future where technology and people work together seamlessly to protect and save lives,” Said Samantha Alspaugh, Director of Global Accounts at RapidSOS. “With partners such as Mojio that are RapidSOS Ready, we’re providing the everyday driver with an added layer of safety and security and supporting our heroic first responders in saving millions of lives annually.”
The automatic crash notification service is available today to subscribers of Mojio’s connected car service for individuals and families, called Motion by Mojio, which is available for direct purchase by consumers, or as part of Mojio’s 4G Upgrade Program for automotive OEMs impacted by the 3G network sunset.
Motion by Mojio subscribers also receive access to a growing range of helpful app-based features, including live vehicle trip-tracking; vehicle timeline with trip history, driving statistics and RoadScoreTM; nearby fuel station finder with real-time pricing; vehicle diagnostics and safety recall information; Mojio’s latest AI-powered predictive maintenance alerts for battery failure and air filter replacement; and customizable notifications for a range of vehicle health, status and security alerts.
Mojio also offers the Motion connected car service as a turnkey, white-label retrofit solution for automotive OEMs and mobility service providers, including the telematics devices, 4G LTE connectivity, platform services, and mobile apps for iOS and Android smartphones.
