dguard - the intelligent emergency call system for motorcycles
Motorcycle safety – you can trust dguard
Compared to other motor vehicle operators, like car drivers for example, motorcyclists are exposed to a higher risk of being injured in road traffic. Extensive testing was required so that our motorcycle emergency call system can do today what we envisioned for it. We were able to bring the DEKRA expert organisation onboard as a reliable and independent partner to carry out certain tests. Experienced examiners tested the heart and soul of our system - successfully: dguard passed all of the scenarios.
The dguard motorcycle emergency call system protects you and your motorcycle: In case of a crash, the system automatically connects to the nearest rescue coordination centre via the GSM mobile network. Your GPS coordinates are sent directly - so that help can arrive quickly, even if you are unconscious.
As of 2018, eCall systems are required for all new passenger vehicles, but there are no such legal requirements for motorcycles yet. Nevertheless, motorcyclists often seek that adrenalin hit that comes from putting pedal to the metal when there’s no traffic on windy country roads with rolling hills. If a serious crash happens there, rapid assistance can save lives.
All of the dguard features at a glance:
- Easy to retrofit
- Made in Germany
- Intelligent emergency calling
- Anti-theft alarm
- Touring log
- „Find my bike“ function
- dguard app for all functions
In contrast to other eCall systems that connect to an in-house call centre, dguard connects directly with the rescue coordination centre. If you are responsive and travelling with a headset, you can personally describe your condition and all relevant crash data. If you are not able to do that, dguard automatically sends your location in the form of GPS coordinates - and emergency services can be sent immediately.
As the world’s first eCall system, dguard is also fitted with an easy-to-use anti-theft alarm. The sensors, which you adjust to suit your individual needs, react to your bike’s motion. If the movement is not authorised, your app immediately receives a notification giving your bike’s current location coordinates - so you can respond immediately.
Do you want to document your best rides, share them with friends, or repeat them? No problem with the touring log: Plot elevation data, speed, or rest stops and let friends and family share your experiences.
The app lets you manage all of the dguard functions in a well laid-out format. Using the dashboard, you can easily make system adjustments according to your individual requirements. In addition to the emergency and “Find my bike” function, you can also use the app to activate your anti-theft alarm and manage your motorcycle touring log.
