Goals and opportunity

SiriusXM Connect offers customers a variety of technologies that keep drivers safe, informed, and connected. The company’s advanced Automatic Crash Network (ACN+) collects vehicle crash and incident information from onboard sensors and devices that can help emergency services respond faster and more efficiently during auto accidents.

Partnering with RapidSOS

Through the RapidSOS emergency response data platform, SiriusXM Connect can share data directly from ACN+ to 911. When an ACN+ enabled vehicle is involved in an accident, SiriusXM Connect can immediately access vehicle crash and incident data and share it to the screens of telecommunicators through the RapidSOS Platform. Additionally, if a driver has a linked account with another RapidSOS Ready partner such as MedicAlert, telecommunicators can access health data from the driver’s MedicAlert profile.
