Montrans assessed the trends of transport telematics until 2023

For any industry, it is important to understand where the market is heading, what can “shoot” on it, and what can sink into oblivion. As they said in the Roman Empire: “Solum debilis mori debent – Only the weak must die. Not by five, not by seven, but by three, since the high-tech market is developing very quickly.

Forecast: stability and silence.  Data processing and storage centers will be deployed throughout the country. In addition, blockchain technologies (from the English blockchain, a continuous sequential chain of blocks containing information) will be integrated into every process.

In the retail sector, in addition to YANDEX and Citymobil, a third major aggregator will appear. Models of sharing services will be actively tested. From renting a tool to subletting apartments and offices. There will come a moment of return on investment for large operators, parks will be updated, conditions of use will become tougher. Sharing services will step into small towns. In the segment of courier delivery services, the main players will also be determined. Fuel prices may rise to 60 rubles per liter of 92-octane gasoline in three years.

As for the transport telematics market, according to the head of the MONTRANS Analytical Center, Dmitry Zhuravlev, the market will welcome customized solutions and complex projects. Equipment becomes wireless and easy to set up. Telematics installation will move into the category of simple operations through the development of Bluetooth configuration technologies and Android devices. The transition from companies specializing in equipment installation to companies offering complex solutions and writing interfaces will begin. In particular, the Flespi and Montrans mechanisms are aimed at this.

Video monitoring will open a new era. If manufacturers of telematics equipment (Omnicomm, GalileoSky, TechnoCom) go from telematics devices to the top of the mountain (telemonitoring), then Chinese manufacturers, on the contrary, head over heels down from there. Competition pushes them out of the greenhouse conditions of stationary surveillance into the world of cars and biometrics analysis.

VSS technologies (from English – Video Surveillance System – video surveillance system) are more developed, and the equipment capabilities are already higher. The world from the 2000s with black boxes goes to the video monitoring of the 2020s at the same price: a thousand dollars apiece. Therefore, nothing good is expected for telematics manufacturers on the Russian hardware market.

“The ERA GLONASS and PLATON platforms will get a second wind in 2020, as the number of vehicles connected to ERA GLONASS will reach 10% of the vehicle fleet in Russia. And other industries that require attention from the state will begin to connect to PLATON: waste processing, medicine, food retail. The development of the system of weight and size control and GAIS “ERA GLONASS” for dangerous goods and passenger traffic will start.

Again will not do without the unrest of truckers. The state will learn to extract income from the prompt receipt of information. Strengthen control over taxpayers. Equipping corporate clients with telematics will reach the level of 90%. Most of them will continue to develop their own servers (we wrote about the problems of this approach earlier), the rest will start using monitoring solutions from major telematics players,” shared Dmitry Zhuravlev.

“Today, there is practically not a single transport segment where telematic technologies would not be used,” says Fedor Klopotovsky, Director of the Sales Department of GLONASS JSC: “Freight transport and agricultural machinery, school buses and ambulances, municipal vehicles and railway cars are a far from complete list of categories of transport where devices connected to the automated system for monitoring objects based on the state automated information system ERA-GLONASS (ASM ERA) operate.

We, as the operator of the state system “ERA-GLONASS”, are moving from the tasks of ensuring the rescue of a person in case of an accident to the implementation of the tasks of ensuring the safety of the transport industry as a whole.  Solutions based on JSC GLONASS technologies are used in ecology, housing and communal services, health care, and tourism.  In our opinion, the market is moving towards the creation of complex systems.

For example, already today our system for automatic detection and management of incidents in the transportation of passengers and cargo allows you to monitor the driver’s condition, control the lane, control the status of the transported cargo and the integrity of the cargo compartment. And in case of incidents, it is possible to automatically inform the management and units of emergency response services. We continue to work on expanding the functionality of the solutions implemented on the basis of our system.”

Igor Ershov, head of the MONTRANS installation center, explains: “From the point of view of an engineer, nothing will change. Most of the customer’s equipment is not available for installation on assembly lines and is in active operation, so only the transition to wireless technology will be most useful. With an increase in the number of connected sensors, the amount of work at each customer site will increase.

so the qualifications of the staff will be of paramount importance. At the moment, we are actively instilling a mobile application for engineers to promptly close acts, automatically change the status of applications. Mastering and improving SLA. Depending on the requirements of the customer, we proceed to the restoration or new installation of equipment within 12-24 hours from the date of registration of the application.

We bring the equipment into line according to key criteria: engine operation time, useful work / load time, mileage, refueling volumes and consumed fuel. The current trend is the installation of video monitoring systems and sensors for the operation of mechanisms, setting up display displays for drivers with RFID cards, which requires the work of two employees at once: an engineer in the field and technical support at the customer’s office. And the installation of automated fuel metering systems at ATZ and fuel dispensers can take from one to four days, since calibration is carried out everywhere.”

“Our requirements and interests now extend to the entire line of transport monitoring equipment capabilities,” says the head of the transport department of one of the largest contractors, Gazprom. and data entry for drivers. The most requested services for us are: setting up the “fuel balance” report (through fuel metering) and uploading data on traffic police fines to the safe driving module. Display settings in 1C “TMS Logistics” programs.
