Requirements

# Requirement
01 The vehicle shall provide the capability for a driver to report an emergency and summon assistance.
02 The vehicle shall provide the capability to accept input from a driver via a panic button or some other functionally similar form of input device provided as part of the in-vehicle equipment.
03 The vehicle shall acknowledge the driver's request for emergency assistance.
04 The vehicle shall collect vehicle characteristics describing the vehicles typical and real time configuration, including damage to vehicle components.
05 The vehicle shall notify emergency responders of the characteristics and damage identified to the vehicle involved in a collision.
06 The vehicle shall provide the capability to automatically identify that a collision has occurred using equipment such as collision detection sensors with an interface to mayday type equipment that would automatically detect vehicle problems and send appropriate distress signals to the arriving public safety vehicles.
07 The vehicle shall collect vehicle operational state information from the host vehicle.
08 The vehicle shall analyze vehicle operational state information to determine if the host vehicle has been involved in a collision.
09 The vehicle shall provide further details about the emergency to the center upon request from that function.
10 The vehicle shall forward a request for assistance to a center containing the driver's current location, its identity and basic vehicle data relevant to its current condition, as well as any other data, such as personal medical history, vehicle orientation, etc., that may be developed in-vehicle by other systems.
11 The vehicle shall provide the capability to automatically identify that a collision has occurred using equipment such as collision detection sensors with an interface to mayday type equipment that would automatically detect vehicle problems and send appropriate distress signals to a center.
