    The European in-vehicle 112 emergency call system eCall aims to reduce the number of road traffic fatalities in Europe. At present, the standards of eCall are being validated as part of the European HeERO project (Harmonised eCall European Pilot), and member states of the EU have also been advised to prepare for mandatory deployment of eCall. We outline the national implementation roadmap for eCall in Finland. In addition to information specific to Finland, the roadmap takes into account research results, regulation and other documents published at the European level. The roadmapping methods used in the study have certain limitations such as a tendency to assume linear development, technical and rational focus and implicit certainty assumed for events. These limitations have to be taken into account when utilizing the roadmap for the planning of activities or other purposes. The roadmap will have to be updated once the final results of the HeERO project become available, European-level regulations related to the deployment of eCall have been completed, and the update to the information system of Finnish public safety answering points is closer to completion
