An upgrade of ERA-GLONASS satellite system will ensure better control over the situation on the Russian roads.
Russian police will start installing this system on all new cars across Russia, Belarus, Armenia, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan from 2017.
ERA-GLONASS system fulfils its main function of sending out a radio signal with the exact coordinates of any traffic accident and maintaining stable radio communication between passengers and the dispatcher. The police will also remotely control any vehicle equipped with an on-board ERA-GLONASS system and turn off car engine via satellite or mobile phone and monitor the vehicle’s movements. ERA-GLONASS combines mobile communications and satellite data to provide rapid assistance to motorists in the event of a collision.
The system monitors airbag deployment to automatically transmit location details and provide assistance via emergency cellular services. Russian police will be able to turn off car engine via satellite or mobile phone.
