A proposal has been put forward in the Russian government on installing black boxes in vehicles that would be connected to the Glonass navigation system, the Russian Izvestia newspaper reports.

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.
