S. A. Zubanov - General director of JSC “Donaerodorstroy”
Dear colleagues, participants and guests of the V International Conference “The role and place of intelligent transport systems in the network of highways of the Russian Federation. Current development trends ”, I am pleased to address you with words of welcome.
Today, the introduction of intelligent transport systems is one of the priorities for the formation of the digital economy of Russia, as part of one of the key tasks set by Russian President Vladimir Putin. Improvement of modern vehicles is no longer possible without the universal application of intelligent transport systems. Awareness of the importance of digital transformation of highways as the basis of life safety, social and economic growth of the country is becoming not only a topical issue for specialists, but also a supra-branch issue.
A distinctive feature of modern intelligent transport systems is the change in the status of a transport unit from an independent, independent and largely unpredictable subject of traffic in the direction of the “active”, predictable subject of transport and information space. In this regard, one of the main tasks of intelligent transport systems is the implementation and support of the possibility of automated and automatic interaction of all transport actors in real time on adaptive principles. Optimizing road traffic by coordinating traffic throughout the road network will reduce the length of traffic congestion, optimize public transport routes, promptly notify drivers and passengers about the situation on the road, and improve the environmental situation.
Of course, the transport industry has come to the conclusion that the strategic direction for creating supporting intellectual digital infrastructure of roads and creating an innovative system of rules for its development is, above all, the consolidation of the efforts of the state, municipal, public institutions, the media and civil society. At the same time, this cooperation should include the provision of fundamental state support to domestic enterprises and the creation of conditions for the development and implementation of business solutions offered, their harmonization with the issues of the country's strategic development.
I wish all the participants of the conference constructive negotiations and innovative ideas
