In everything that we do, we always follow our maxim "The best or nothing". Our latest contribution towards your safety is thus the rescue sticker with a QR code: It ensures the rescue services can access the rescue cards even quicker and can thus save precious time in a life-threatening emergency situation.
The QR code sticker is found on the fuel cap and on the opposite B-pillar and is therefore always easy for the rescue services to spot. If the rescue service personnel scan in the QR code using a scanning app on a smartphone or tablet, they are taken directly to the rescue card.
The rescue card is internationally recognised and contains vehicle-specific sketches with all the information necessary for rescue operations: model, model series and year of manufacture, special details about the bodywork and vehicle design, location of the airbags and the battery, as well as specific information on the alternative drive types. This key data has been clearly presented using state-of-the-art 3D technology and Augmented Reality. This makes it easier for rescue personnel to rescue accident victims from a vehicle, which in certain cases can save lives.
Mercedes-Benz is now deploying the Mercedes-Benz rescue stickers as standard in all new vehicles. You can have QR code stickers for models from model year 1990 onwards retrofitted without any fuss and free of charge at any Mercedes-Benz service partner.
