“Diabetes” is necessary for the formation in Russia of “smart roads”, the basic idea is to minimize traffic jams and accidents, to make it comfortable for motorists and pedestrians.

Now comes the second phase of implementation of the platform – developed detailed specification and technical design of the platform.

In Samara, Tambov, and Volgograd are experimenting with its prototype “smart” pedestrian crossings are flashing in the dark when the transition comes the traffic lights on the basis of artificial intelligence technologies to determine the optimum mode of work in creating a “green corridor” for road transport. Special systems inform drivers about dangerous areas, the approach of “emergency” and so on.

To collect data from the vehicles required sensors V2X (vehicle to everything) that provide exchange of information between vehicles and the road infrastructure, in this case with the platform of “Diabetes”.

much of a problem with the preset is not be, said Yaroslav Fedoseev, the official representative of the working group “Avtonet” National technology initiative. “In Russia, 40% of vehicles now have a device capable of transmitting data at a distance,” he explained.

the Technology exists for more than fifteen years – automakers collect anonymous data about, for example, how often the driver presses the brake pedal, about his driving style and so on. Then the same information and get the official dealers, when the car passes the inspection.

In the world the percentage of cars with such sensors is even higher. “We conducted an analysis of telematics services in Russia and worldwide and found that more than 70% of commercial vehicles are already connected to different telematics platforms,” said Igor Kravchenko, Deputy Director for innovative markets of the company “Reksoft”, the main contractor on the project.

the Estimated cost of the project “Diabetes” and its Federal implementation 5 billion. While it is allocated less than a billion.

in Addition to the technical improvements of the platform the necessary changes in legislation. Developed with the participation of NTI “Avtonet” the bill about the rules of collecting and processing information from vehicles, the Ministry plans to submit to the government before the end of the year.
