MOSCOW (Sputnik) – If the proposal is accepted, black boxes could be installed in cars as soon as in 2020, the newspaper said on Thursday, citing a document released after relevant consultations with Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin.
The ERA-GLONASS system would provide basic infrastructure for the proposed project. ERA-GLONASS must be mandatory installed in all cars starting from 2020.
Glonass JSC is the operator of the ERA-GLONASS system, providing data to emergency responders via Russia’s Global Navigation Satellite System. It is designed to reduce emergency service arrival times by quickly pin-pointing incident sites. The system calls an emergency service number automatically if the on-board transponder signals an accident.
