ALEXANDER GURKO APPROVED BY THE LEADER OF THE WORKING GROUP IN DEVELOPMENT AND IMPLEMENTATION OF THE ROAD MAP “AUTONET”
At a meeting in the Presidium’s Council of Economic Modernization and Innovative Development of Russia, chaired by Dmitriy Medvedev in Kazan, Alexander Gurko was approved co-head leader of the working group on the development and implementation of the road map "Autonet" by National Technology Initiative.
The development of digital technologies and the changing of consumer behavior make new demands for the modern cars and transport services. On the one hand, new sources of revenue are being created, and on the other, competition in the automotive market intensifies and inter-sectoral boundaries are being erased. Companies that previously provided only separate services for car owners are strengthening their positions, striving to become an integral part of the value chain of creating and providing a full range of services in the car. Traditional players are forced to develop cooperation with companies from other industries to develop and implement new business models and prospective approaches to the application of technology in business.
In the next 5 years, the global market for services based on connectivity will grow by 25% per year in average. In Russia the growth rate may be higher then we enter the zone of active growth, which is catalyzed by large-scale infrastructure projects at the state level, such as ERA-GLONASS, Platon and others. Also the President’s instructions about the Russian Service Information and Telematics Platform says that it’s being developed. This is an automated information system, a part of the ecosystem of telematic transport systems (TTS) located at the state level that collects, processes, stores and analyzes information coming from other levels of the TTS ecosystem in order to fulfill state tasks to improve coordination and awareness of authorities, increasing the efficiency and security of the transport sector, as well as ensuring state functions to protect the mechanisms of a market economy, equal conditions for access to information for market participants, law enforcement and law enforcement, environmental protection and the maintenance of a healthy environment.
Development and introduction of modern telematic transport systems and intelligent transport systems require improvement of regulatory legal and technical regulation, as well as the development of a system of project financing from development institutions. Without active support of the state and development institutions, it is impossible to ensure the competitiveness of domestic developers and producers both on the domestic and foreign markets.
One of the primary tasks of the updated working group on the development and implementation of the Autonet Roadmap for the National Technological Initiative (Autonet 2.0) is to bring the existing regulatory and technical regulations to a level conducive to the introduction and development of new technologies such as V2X, ADAS as well as new business models that meet the needs of end users.
An important task is to attract partners and search for prospective projects within the framework of targeted directions with subsequent financing through relevant development institutions and funds.
The basis for the activity of Autonet 2.0 will be three directions, which are already estimated at billions of dollars on a global scale and will show significant growth in the next 10-15 years. These are transport and logistics services, "connected", autonomous vehicles and transport telematics, as well as transport services for "smart" urban mobility.
Many technologies that will be given special attention in the new road map, such as communication technologies, service and navigation platforms, telematics, cyber security, large data processing and machine learning are at the intersection of industries. Therefore, active cooperation is planned with other participants of STI markets. During the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum in June this year, an agreement on cooperation between Neuronet and AutoNet was signed. This consolidation of the forces of all market participants and related industries will create a technological basis for the implementation of a multitude of projects and the development of a market of services and services in the field of logistics for people and things.
