Several threads have appeared on TMC regarding stolen or highjacked vehicle situations involving a Tesla Model S. Here's a possible solution that could be implemented with current or soon-to-come technology. It would also be useful in accident and disabled vehicle situations. In August 2014, the FCC issued an order that will require all wireless carriers to deliver 911 text messages to 911 call centers that request them. Wireless carriers must comply with this order by June 30, 2015. The 911 call centers will still have the option to accept or not accept 911 text messages, but it seems likely that most will, as consumers become familiar with it. What You Need to Know About Text-to-911 | FCC.gov This technology could allow someone in a Model S to contact 911 from the Tesla app, offering the following benefits: • The 911 text message sent by the Tesla app could include the following: Type of Report (stolen vehicle, disabled vehicle, accident, etc) Vehicle Information (plate number, make, model color—stored within the app) Smartphone Location (Goole Maps link) Vehicle Location (a link to a real time tracking map like the one already in the Tesla app) • The 911 call center would likely confirm the incoming text message by calling or texting the smartphone from which it originated. • After confirmation, the 911 call center could pass this data along to police/emergency responders in the area. Police cruisers with live Internet capability would be able to use the Vehicle Location link to track the vehicle. If not, the 911 call center could relay location information to them. • This tracking capability would also be useful in accident and disabled vehicle situations where the driver is in unfamiliar territory and doesn't know where they are located. Perhaps other owners can add suggestions to this. It seems doable.
