ERA-GLONASS, the emergency response system for accidents, which was created in Russia, is the world first state system of help on the roads. It was put to use in January 2015 and, according to the experts' research, will be helping to save 4000 lives annually. ERA-GLONASS infrastructure and its secure and competitive technologies may serve to create new security systems. The system can also be efficient in providing safety in public transport and taxies.

According to our estimates, such an economy may amount to about 50%".
The international forum of technological development "Technoprom-2015" takes place on the 4-5 of June in Novosibirsk City.
