Tashkent, Uzbekistan (UzDaily.com) -- From 5 to 7 April 2021, the international exhibition “Innoprom. Big Industrial Week in Uzbekistan”, GLONASS presents at the event Russian high-tech navigation and information technologies - emergency response system in case of accidents "ERA-GLONASS", monitoring of transport and cargo, high-precision positioning and other services in the field of transport security, communications, logistics, ecology, agriculture, etc.
The exposition of GLONASS at the exhibition was visited by the Minister of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation Denis Manturov, Deputy Prime Minister for Investments and Foreign Economic Relations - Minister of Investments and Foreign Trade of the Republic of Uzbekistan Sardor Umurzakov and General Director of the Rostec State Corporation Sergey Chemezov. General Director of JSC "GLONASS" Igor Milashevsky presented the Russian system of emergency response in case of road accidents "ERA-GLONASS", which ensures compliance with the UN Rules and the EAEU technical regulations "On the safety of wheeled vehicles" in Russia. Together with a local partner, SMARTGEO, Igor Milashevsky presented a Russian-Uzbek project to create a similar system in the Republic of Uzbekistan.
In accordance with the Concept of ensuring road safety in the Republic of Uzbekistan for 2018-2022, approved by the Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers from 19 May 2018 No. 377 "On measures to further improve the road safety system in the Republic of Uzbekistan", increasing the level of road safety is one of the priority areas for the country. The creation of an emergency response system in case of accidents in Uzbekistan will contribute to the achievement of the goals of the Concept and reduce the number of victims and serious consequences for the health of citizens as a result of road accidents.
Russia put into operation the ERA-GLONASS system in 2015 and became the first state where such a service was deployed throughout the country. Over the years of operation, the system has shown itself to be a highly efficient service and has helped save the lives of over 1,500 motorists and preserve the health of thousands of victims of road accidents. The main tasks of ERA-GLONASS are to reduce mortality by automating information and speeding up the arrival of emergency services at the scene of an accident and preventing damage to the life and health of citizens. Today, more than 7 million vehicles are registered in the system, and their number is increasing daily by an average of 5,200 vehicles. The system has received more than 10 million calls, every 5 seconds ERA-GLONASS processes one emergency call. Over 70% of true calls are received automatically, i.e. as a result of a severe accident, when the victim may not be able to call for help on his own.
During the design and implementation of ERA-GLONASS, Russian specialists have developed innovative technologies and test methods, acquired unique knowledge and experience that they are ready to share with other countries. In all its developments, GLONASS JSC adheres to the principle of technological neutrality, which avoids monopolization of technologies, provides a flexible transition to new solutions and broad export opportunities. JSC "GLONASS" will help Uzbek partners who are also ready to apply their competencies in a joint project, adapt the best Russian practices to the needs of Uzbekistan.
In order to diversify its business, GLONASS JSC, in addition to the transport sector, actively interacts with organizations of the agro-industrial complex, urban planning, the energy sector, natural resources, housing and communal services. The company develops innovative services within the entire navigation and information industry, including monitoring of transport and cargo (including for transit traffic and the organization of the "green corridor"), high-precision positioning technologies, insurance telematics, multifunctional platforms for intelligent transport systems (ITS) and others. ... Also JSC "GLONASS" is the largest operator in the Internet of Things in Russia. The company is actively introducing all these products and services in many regions of the Russian Federation and is ready to offer them to government and commercial organizations of Uzbekistan.
The creation in the Republic of Uzbekistan of an emergency response system in case of road accidents will allow in the future to develop its own navigation and information services in the country and expand their application to all types of transport. The General Director of GLONASS JSC Igor Milashevsky expressed confidence that the creation of an emergency response system in case of accidents in Uzbekistan would be a serious contribution to the digitalization of the country's transport industry. In his speech at the main plenary session of the interregional forum "Russia-Uzbekistan: Industrial Dialogue" Igor Milashevsky noted that the development of the system will contribute to improving the living standards of citizens and the development of the state's economy, will help form the market of navigation and telematic equipment in Uzbekistan and create preconditions for the emergence of new work places.
In order to plan further steps on the project to create an emergency response system in Uzbekistan in case of accidents, the management of GLONASS JSC held negotiations with representatives of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the Ministry of Transport and the Ministry for the Development of Information Technologies and Communications of the Republic of Uzbekistan. The Uzbek executive authorities expressed great interest in the project to create an emergency response system in case of road accidents and expressed support for its implementation.
At present, emergency response systems in case of accidents are also deployed in all countries of the European Union and in Kazakhstan, work on the creation of systems is underway in other states. In order to provide mutual assistance to car owners in case of accidents during cross-border trips, work is underway to organize information interaction between the Russian ERA-GLONASS system, Kazakhstan's EVAC and European eCall systems.
As a result of the implementation of the joint project, the Republic of Uzbekistan will become another country where the emergency response system in case of accidents will be an example of the effective use of advanced navigation and information technologies to ensure the priority functions of the state to prevent damage to the life and health of citizens in accordance with international law. In addition, the joint Russian-Uzbek project will open up new opportunities for business and the state, and will increase the level of transport security of the country.
