GLONASS Union and LLC “Russian machines” agreed on cooperative development of navigation technologies
The corporation "Russian machines" being a part of one of the Russian largest diversified industrial groups "Basic element", and Non-commercial partnership for promotion of navigation technologies development and application (GLONASS Union) reached an agreement on cooperation at Saint-Petersburg International Economic Forum. The companies are planning cooperative work in the field of navigation technologies application in Russia and overseas. The President of GLONASS Union Alexander Gurko and Executive Director of LLC "Russian machines" Manfred Aybek signed the agreement.
According to the document, the parties will promote the implementation of GLONASS technologies in the automobile industry, which includes preparation and realization of broad-scale international projects, such as FIFA World Cup 2018. The parties' areas of cooperation will also include implementation of the project of ERA-GLONASS system development, creating and promoting products and services on this basis, and perfecting legal and regulatory framework and technological infrastructure in the field of navigation.
The President of GLONASS Union Alexander Gurko: "Navigation technologies in vehicles provide for a significant increase in economic efficiency and for a new safety level. The cooperation of our Partnership, which consolidates Russian major participants of navigation market, with one of the largest machine manufacturing companies in Russia, will let us hasten the development of national products and services using GLONASS, and will create new opportunities for the Russian high-technology export".
Executive Director of the Corporation "Russian machines" Manfred Aybek: "Navigation technologies increase safety and efficiency of using freight and passenger transport; they allow controlling the transportation real-time, provide for more advanced and efficient work of special equipment. In cooperation with GLONASS Union, we intend to develop information-logical space, the principles of which will be used in 11 regions of Russia during the FIFA World Cup. In future, we hope that these principles will be introduced all over the country, thus establishing a global transportation system. We are interested in integrating the maximum number of equipment produced by "Russian machines" into this system".
Today they already install GLONASS equipment in the machines produced by the "Russian machines" enterprises and companies. Thus, the devices that allow controlling the route and technical condition of vehicles real-time can be installed in the buses of "GAZ Group", according to the customer's choice. The machines with this kind of equipment have already proved their efficiency at the Olympics and Paralympics in Sochi, where a unified logistics center was watching and controlling all the buses' routs. The company "RM-Terex", which produces road construction machinery, equips the new generation of TX/WX-series excavators with the GLONASS system equipment, which allows for telemetering the parameters of machine's work on-line, and for identifying its position. "AGCO-RM", a manufacturer and retailer of farm machinery, offers FUSETechnologies – new technological solutions for precision agriculture, compatible with GLONASS satellite navigation.
