PROGOROD and ITIS launch traffic information system in Russia

Russian navigation systems provider, PROGOROD, has chosen to license ITIS’s Trafficscience Technology product in order to provide road users in Russia with the latest information on road conditions. The three-year agreement continues a long-term partnership between the two organizations, which is based on their working together to expand navigation technologies throughout Russia and the CIS. The Trafficscience system will use PROGOROD’s own GPS data, which will be fused with other sources to provide high-quality flow data, initially in Moscow and then to be rolled out in other major cities in Russia.

PROGOROD will use RDS-TMC and GSM to distribute the traffic data to vehicles and will also provide historic traffic information to government agencies and roadbuilders, in order to help planning for future improvements to the Russian road network. ITIS will work closely with PROGOROD to deliver commercially proven applications, such as IVR telephone services and RDS-TMC. The company will also provide real-time and historic traffic information and will collect cellular Floating Vehicle Data (FVD).

“PROGOROD represents a significant step for ITIS in Russia and demonstrates our market leading traffic technology,” explains Stuart Marks, chief executive of ITIS. “The market in Russia is buoyant and many of our existing customers – especially premium car manufacturers – have been demanding reliable traffic information especially for Moscow. With PROGOROD we will be able to do this quickly and to the high standards that our customers expect.”

“We have chosen ITIS for its superior technologies, traffic information ‘knowhow’, and proven business model that they operate in the UK and globally,” adds Dmitry Bakutin, CEO of PROGOROD. “Our license agreement with ITIS will provide PROGOROD with the traffic information systems and business logic to enable us to offer market-leading traffic services in Russia and elsewhere in the region.”
