Regarding the establishment of “Guidelines for communication-type drive recorders for automatic accident reporting”
*Developed with the aim of making more effective use of automatic accident reporting devices, and with the assumption that they will be installed in in-use vehicles and utilize video data. *
* Drive Recorder Association (General Incorporated Association) (Koganei City, Tokyo)
(Chairman: Masao Nagai) established and published the “Guidelines for communication-type drive recorders for automatic accident reporting”. By widely installing drive recorders produced in accordance with these guidelines in vehicles, when a traffic accident occurs, appropriate notifications will be made to fire departments and information will be communicated to hospitals through the drive recorder. It is hoped that this will lead to quick dispatch of cars. *
General Incorporated Association Drive Recorder Association (Koganei City, Tokyo)
(Chairman: Masao Nagai) has established and published the “Guidelines for Communication Drive Recorders for Automatic Accident Reporting” (hereinafter referred to as the “Guidelines”).

Currently, an increasing number of vehicles manufactured in Japan are connected cars equipped with devices that have mobile communication functions, and automatic accident notification systems (ACN) that utilize this function are becoming more popular. This device can automatically and quickly notify fire departments, etc. through a call center in the event of a traffic accident. More recently, D-Call using advanced automatic accident notification system (AACN)
Net (*1) has begun to be installed, and by linking automatic accident notification data to hospitals, it is expected that rapid dispatch of medical helicopters, medical cars, etc., and more advanced emergency medical care will be possible.
However, currently, D-Call
The number of vehicles equipped with Net is estimated to be
approximately 6 million (as of the end of 2023, according to the certified NPO Emergency Helicopter Hospital Network (HEM-Net)), which is 62.32 million passenger cars in Japan (as of the end of 2023, based on research by the General Foundation). This is only about 10% of the total (according to the Japan Automobile Inspection and Registration Information Association).

At the Drive Recorder Association, this D-Call
“Retrofit” D-Call using a drive recorder that can be introduced to used cars and vehicles other than passenger cars, with the aim of spreading the Internet more quickly.
We have been cooperating with the study of Net. This guideline is one of the results, and it is
This is a summary of the technical specifications of the drive recorder required to realize the Net. Currently, many of the drive recorders used in passenger cars are not equipped with mobile communication functions, but by making them communication-type drive recorders that comply with these guidelines, HEM-Net is considering “retrofitting” D- Call
It is now possible to use the system online, and it is expected that the field of use of drive recorders will be greatly expanded, and that it will be especially effective in saving lives in the event of a life-threatening traffic accident.

In addition, video data recorded by drive recorders at the time of an accident has been mainly used for post-accident investigations, but if it becomes possible to provide it to fire departments, hospitals, etc. when an accident occurs, it could be used at the scene of emergency rescue. It is possible to use it more meaningfully. For this reason, this guideline has technical specifications that also assume the use of video.

This guideline has been created to meet as much as possible the requirements of the “Three Ministries and Agencies Guidelines” (*2) that stipulate emergency notification methods for “on-vehicle type” automatic accident reporting devices. Among drive recorders, D-Call We also aimed to comply with the guidelines for drive recorders that have a Net reporting function. In addition, this guideline is part of the “Drive Recorder Recommended Guidelines” that have been established and published by the Drive Recorder Council. In principle, some content, such as detailed explanations, can only be viewed by members of the Drive Recorder Association.
