J'son & Partners Consulting continues the series of studies about the Internet of Things and presents brief results of the research of the main trends and prospects of development of the Russian market for intelligent transport systems (ITS). The main emphasis was put on the automated systems for traffic management (ASTM). Dozens of projects in this area were analyzed in detail: used systems, key vendors, the peripheral equipment combination and communication technologies used to connect it.

 

Forecasts and prospects for intelligent transport systems in Russia

 

The transport sector is one of the most promising directions of implementation of the Internet of Things. This is due to the possibilities for automatization of processes for controlling the traffic and necessity and necessity to eliminate subjective human factors.

 

According to J'son & Partners Consulting, the total number of connected intelligent transportation systems (ITS) in Russia will increase by 46% from 29.4 thousand in 2015 to 42.9 thousand in 2020. Meanwhile traffic enforcement cameras will be by the number of connections the most popular systems, surpassing transport detectors.

 

 

ASTM are designed for centralized or local automated control of traffic (vehicular and pedestrian flows). Such a system is a set of peripheral devices integrated into a single network, with the Central control room (CCR).

 

Peripheral devices as part of ASTM (on the example of the Ring Highway ASTM) include: 

  • road controllers;
  • traffic flow detectors;
  • road signs and traffic information displays;
  • CCTV cameras (video cameras);
  • automated road meteorological stations;
  • weighbridges (truck scales);
  • speed control complexes;
  • other "connected" devices.

ASTM within city limits include also connected traffic lights.

 

Regulation of the traffic flows (e.g., prioritization) is based on historical and current data from sensors and cameras. The system may choose from a range of regulation models as well as adjust some existing parameters to current conditions.

 

According to J'son and Partners Consulting, projects on creation complex ASTM will actively develop in our country, primarily in connection with the need to solve the traffic jam problem and in frames of the overall strategy of increasing road safety. Another important factor is the possibility to replenish regional budgets due to automation of the processes of fixing violations and issuing fines. In 2016, the number of large cities such as Nizhniy Novgorod, Samara, etc., announced a tender for creation of such systems.

 

According to J'son & Partners Consulting, by 2020 there will be almost 43 thousand connected objects in the ITS segment in Russia. The most popular ASTM peripheral devices by the number of connections will still be such ASTM as traffic enforcement cameras and vehicle detector devices.

 

The ASTM market assessment and key trends

 

The most developed ITSs and ASTM in Russia implemented in Moscow and St. Petersburg. That is, primarily, because of the special status of these cities, as well as with the pressing need to solve the problem of the road infrastructure overcharge and to reduce the number of accidents.

 

Thus, according to the Moscow State institution “Traffic Management Centre”, currently as part of the city’s ITS there are the following items:

  • more than 2 thousand traffic lights,
  • more than 2 thousand video cameras,
  • more than 6 thousand traffic detectors,
  • 700 km of fiber-optic communication lines,
  • transport model (80 thousand buildings, more than 45 thousand trading objects, 4600 stops for public transport, 190 thousand interchanges and intersections, 1.2 million turns to different directions, etc.),
  • 157 traffic displays,
  • 805 traffic enforcement cameras,
  • More than 100 thousand parking spaces under control.

One of the main trends of ITS/ASTM is a gradual transition from foreign software and peripheral equipment to the domestic one (so called “import substitution”).

 

In particular, since 2014, "Avtodorcenter" (one of the main partners of the Moscow construction complex in the field of road construction and traffic automation) have been developing their own software and at the same time looking for a domestic replacement of imported items such as cameras, detectors, traffic lights, controllers, etc. The company works directly with the manufacturers.

 

The processes of import substitution in the field of ASTM in St. Petersburg during the recent years have been continuing quite actively and have already led to the dominance of the Russian system of "Spectrum". Its market share by the number of traffic lights connected to the system reached 87% in May 2016.

 

According to J'son & Partners Consulting, there were at least 50 ASTM in large and medium cities and on separate sections of the Federal highways in Russia by mid-2016.

 

Despite the high rates of the objects connected to ASTM (up to 100% of traffic lights in some cities), the analysis of incoming information from traffic detectors and its subsequent changes before sending to traffic lights can be operated manually. Today, this greatly reduces the value of such systems from the point of view of saving costs. On the other hand, the transition to a fully automated service requires a certain time for developing optimal control algorithms that will further reduce the influence of "human factor".

 

Major suppliers

 

The study analyzed some decisions from the largest foreign (SWARCO, Telegra, Cross) and Russian ("RIPAS" SPB, "Avtomatika-D" and "Comsignal") suppliers of ASTM in Russia.

 

As noted above, one of the main trends in recent years is the substitution of foreign-made products and the growing share of domestic systems. For example, the geography of "RIPAS" SPB use includes cities such as St. Petersburg (the main market), Moscow, Tver, Yaroslavl, Krasnodar, Sochi, Kazan and other cities. The systems created on the basis of ASTM "Micro" (CJSC "Avtomatika-D"), are operated in more than 10 cities of Russia.

 

In addition, there are some new developers. For example, currently, a new ASTM called “VZGLYAD” is under construction. 

 

In the conditions of the economic crisis and the import substitution policy Russian suppliers get new opportunities and their market share will continue to grow. This is due, primarily, to the high costs of introducing the products of foreign vendors.

 

For example, providing one intersection in Kazan with an ASTM from the company SWARCO (Austria) costs in average 8 - 9 million rubles. The cost of equipping the remaining intersections (traffic lights) with ASTM in Kazan was estimated at about 1,3 - 1,5 billion rubles.

 

Comments from the market participants

 

  Maxim Mihail Korablyov, Project manager, chief designer of the State Automated Information System “ERA-GLONASS”:

 

  1. How can we, safely and effectively, without distracting drivers from the road and using new technologies, give them up to date and accurate information about the road infrastructure and related  services?

 

  Up to 70% of calls into the system "ERA-GLONASS" are references. Consumers try figuring out where is, for example, the best gas or service station. In the future, with increasing car fleet equipped with  "ERA-GLONASS" terminals, such calls will be more and more frequent. In this regard, we are currently developing a specialized contact center to inform customers about various services they could  receive moving their way. It will be useful for the drivers, - pressing the button you can request information on technical assistance on the road, the possibility of evacuation or battery replacement or, for  example, where you can find a hotel with a certain set of services etc.

 

  2. When will the "ERA-GLONASS" terminals be implemented in cars in Russia, and, thus, customer service offices appear?

 

  At the moment we are completing the standards for surface mounting of emergency call devices with advanced features – from the middle of next year, the centers for installation of such terminals will be  much more available in Russia, and from January 2017 such installations will also be available. In addition to the basic functions of rescue for car owners, there will also be a system of automated  registration of Europrotocol, as well as a number of additional services.
