According to his sayings, within the ERA GLONASS program, each car will be equipped with the device, “which if it is needful in case of accident, it will post a sign or a voice message in the center of traffic.
“Thus, the emergencies and their exact locations would be fixed, and the following problems with traffic, too. And, of course, this information will help to react on the situation, providing the assistance,” –said Klimov.
Speaking about the program ERA GLONASS, he marked that “there will take action the analogous system which is based on GPS / Galileo in Europe in 2012”. “Here it is also told about a double-system receiver – GLONASS / GPS.
