Enter the fast track to improving your customer relationship even further.
What is TEP?
Keep your customers’ effort to a minimum with the Telematics eCall Plug from Bosch. This smart sensor device is designed for crash detection and the analysis of driving behavior. The user-friendly advantage is that the plug fits into a 12V outlet of any passenger car. Benefit from Bosch’s best-in-class technology in a small frame. You can choose between the following options: eCall functionality & driving behavior determination; eCall functionality only; driving behavior determination only.
Increase a driver’s safety and help accelerate roadside assistance with the functionality of the retrofittable eCall. With its hyper-accurate integrated acceleration sensor and built-in microcontroller, the Bosch eCall system detects the severity of a collision. The advantage? Quick and professional help, whenever it’s needed.
Driving behavior determination:
Offer your customers’ a greater insight into their own driving behavior and, if necessary, the chance to act upon it. The TEP transmits acceleration, braking and cornering event data to the driver’s smartphone via Bluetooth® and serves as informational help to improve driving performance. Additionally, it helps utilize more personalized services.
Benefits for business customers
Frequent customer contact and improved customer relationship
The TEP delivers precise driving event data for telematics, fleets or insurance applications. The driving event data, which includes crash detection as well as detection of fast acceleration, harsh braking, and sharp turning, is sent to the backend of the business customer. There, the data can be analyzed and processed together with additional information according to the individual requirements of the business partners.
Open up new business models and services
The Telematics eCall Plug's precise driving event data can be used by various operators such as:
- Telemetry service providers
- Automobile Clubs
- Car manufacturers
- Insurance companies
- Mobility services

Fast penetration of consumer base
The device is suitable for mass consumption due to the low investment for the device. In addition, the software development kit is available for an easy integration into an existing Smartphone App.
Small sensor device – multiple advantages
The TEP detects relevant information on crashes and their severity level. Additionally, it tracks scoring events such as acceleration, braking, cornering, starting and stopping.
Our best-in-class Bosch technology is derived from our knowledge in airbag development.
Easy IoT application
With its fit into the well-known 12V outlet, your customers can easily implement the TEP.
The eCall does not connect to the IT infrastructure of a car. Therefore the given security level of the vehicle remains unaffected.
