About the project ERA-GLONASS

Emergency response system, based on European standard eCall/E112, is developed for shared use with global satellite navigation system GLONASS.

Emergency response system ERA-GLONASS was created to save lives and mitigate injuries of road traffic accident victims or casualties in other emergencies on Russian roads. This is attained due to reduction of the response time by Police, EMERCOM Rescue, and EMS.

Infrastructure of ERA-GLONASS system covers all auto-roads in the country, and vehicles are equipped with GLONASS/GPS TCUs. In case of a traffic accident the TCU automatically collects data on its exact location, time, and accident severity, and transmits it with a high-priority alert to the ERA-GLONASS system operator. After that this information is passed on to the emergency response services. Vehicle driver and passengers also have a possibility to contact an ERA-GLONASS operator manually.

ERA-GLONASS system is integrated with European system eCall, as well as with Belarusian ERA-RB and Kazakh EVA, being created within the Customs Union. This forms common road safety space throughout Russia and other countries.

Equipping vehicles with 'ERA-GLONASS' system TCUs:

  • from 1st January 2015 vehicles which for the first time undergo conformity assessment in the form of type approval.

  • from 1st January 2016 all newly introduced vehicles intended for commercial passenger transportation, hazardous cargo and domestic solid waste transportation.

  • from 1st January 2017 all categories of newly introduced vehicles.
