Help Connect

Calimoto turns your motorcycle into a lifesaver

The emergency call system for your motorbike

Automatic accident detection and a direct emergency call can make a big difference in an emergency - especially if you are unable to respond or don’t know where you are. Our emergency assistants are there for you around the clock.

Here’s how calimoto and Help Connect work together in an emergency

01-mbike-number 1

Automatic accident detection

Our partner calimoto uses your smartphone’s sensors and an algorithm to automatically detect your accident and immediately trigger an emergency call with Help Connect. It does this in 11 European countries (Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Ireland, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Spain, Switzerland, United Kingdom).

Please note: The technology has its performance limits. It is state of the art, but we can’t rule out false alarms or promise that it will always accurately detect an actual fall.

Please mind: Because of these performance limits, Help Connect fall detection should be seen as an additional, potentially supportive safety function. In an emergency, it can assist but not fully replace your efforts to alert professional help.

02-agent-number 2

Data communication and emergency calls

The Help Connect emergency call assistant is standing by around the clock, seven days a week, to automatically receive your location and accident data. This way, the assistant knows where you are and if you have had a minor or a serious accident so it can get you precisely the help you need.
If you have filled out an emergency information card and have provided your emergency contacts, the assistant will also know exactly what you need and who to notify.

03-ambulance-number 3

A direct line to rescue services

In the event of a serious accident:
In case of a serious accident, the Bosch emergency call assistant will immediately call the local emergency services (112), forward your emergency information card to first responders, and direct them to the scene. What we mean by a serious accident is an event detected by your smartphone’s sensor data indicating something like a powerful collision.

 

In the event of a minor accident:
An incident like the motorcycle falling over at low speed without a collision is what we call a minor accident. The emergency call assistant will contact you by phone. Then the two of you can decide if you need an ambulance.

 

False alarm:
• The programming of the algorithm contained in calimoto takes scenarios other than an accident into account. These include your mobile phone falling to the ground when the bike is stationary or the motorcycle tipping over. Should the algorithm nonetheless interpret an incident like this as an accident, you have ten seconds to stop the emergency call in the calimoto app if you do not need help.

Our partner calimoto

Calimoto uses your smartphone’s sensors to detect accidents. The crash algorithm runs in the background with calimoto when you’re out and about. It detects accidents of varying severity and automatically sends all relevant information to the Help Connect Service – the particulars of the accident and location, your health data from the emergency information card, and your emergency contacts. With this information, we can get help to you even if you’re unable to take action.

Please note that the accident detection algorithm has performance limits. In particular, it is not possible to exclude false alarms, to correctly detect proper falls or to trigger the emergency call if there is insufficient network coverage at that moment, despite the fact that the state of the art is maintained. You can find out more about this in our FAQ.
