Mercedes Provides QR Code to Vehicles in Effort to Help Crisis Responders
It's crucial that rescue workers get them out fast, when occupants are trapped in an automobile as the consequence of a serious injury. But that is not as simple as it used to be. Modern cars are littered with pyrotechnics for seatbelt tensioners, air bags, and structural supports to deal with various impact types. Mercedes Benz, however, has a remedy.
Beginning this year, all of the brand's autos should have a scannable QR code, which can be put both on the interior of the gas door and on the B pillar of the opposing phase of the vehicle.
Nevertheless these cards are easily misplaced or taken off their designated place. It is at this stage that rescue workers must think or put a call to authorities for comprehensive extraction information, and precious time is lost.
The scannable QR codes are welcome news not just for possible accident victims, but the strategy also will foster Mercedes' picture for a security-oriented brand. The German automaker's picture in this respect took a little hit in Europe lately after the Citan commercial van got just average ratings in EuroNCAP crash testing.
