Why using the Crash Recovery System?
In the automotive industry new developments and technologies are evolving quickly. The use of high-strength steel, additional reinforcements and numerous safety restraint systems in modern vehicles provide excellent protection of the occupants during a crash. Due to all these built-in safety systems the occupant survival rates during traffic accidents has increased significantly. Also, vehicles are more and more equipped with alternative propulsion systems, making them environmental friendly due to their low emission.
After the crash however, all these new technologies present new safety hazards and challenges to the emergency services when responding to the incident and extricate occupants trapped in the vehicle. Not only the safety restraint systems, like airbags and seatbelt pretensioner, but also the environmental friendly propulsion systems present new safety risks. What does a first responder need to know when such a vehicle is involved in an accident? What exactly are the challenges and hazards that such vehicles present? What do rescue workers need to now to respond safely and efficiently, but most important, what knowledge is irrelevant and overkill? It is the mission of Moditech Rescue Solutions B.V. to provide the relevant tools and knowledge required to effectively respond to today’s traffic accidents around the world.
The solution: the Crash Recovery System to know what's inside!
Using this vehicle information system at the scene of an accident, emergency responders can easily access all rescue relevant information about the vehicle. Moditech Rescue Solutions B.V. offers first responders the missing link in emergency response: digital vehicle information available on all mobile computer platforms like Windows, iOS and Android.
When a vehicle is selected, an interactive and model-specific top- and side view graphic is displayed on the screen. In the interactive datasheet all relative components and safety systems are clickable for more information, such as:
- Stored gas inflators (location: head airbags)
- Belt pretensioners
- SRS control units
- Crash sensors
- Seat Occupancy Sensor
- Fuel tank
- Special truck and bus components, such as the suspension of the chassis or the seat adjustment
- Alternative propulsion, such as fuel cells, battery pack, fuel tank and associated deactivation procedures
In the graphic display, component information and deactivation procedures for hybrid vehicles are easily accessible by clicking on the component of choice in the diagram. With this unique functionality, the Crash Recovery System® ensures an effective and safe extrication process and supports first responders in choosing the best and safest methods.
