ISS scored first place in the Road Accelerator 2020
The intelligent accident prevention system SecurOS Soffit won the 1st Road sector Accelerator in Russia.
The first Russian Accelerator for companies working on innovative solutions in the road sector is launched on the base of the FAA “Rosdornii”. Based on the results of the multi-stage selection, the most successful solutions will be included in the Federal Register of New and Best Technologies, Materials, and Technological Solutions for Reuse for being replicated in Russian regions.
14 solutions were picked by the expert jury of the application submitted to the 1st Accelerator to participate further. The semi-finalists took part in an intensive course of training seminars to ensure that during the final selection phase their projects will be presented as successfully as possible.
On December 24, the finale of the Accelerator was held in Moscow, and SecurOS Soffit was chosen as the best innovative project in the road industry and took first place.
SecurOS Soffit was presented as a solution that improves the road users’ safety and reduces the mortality rate on the country’s roads. The complex fully corresponds to the concept of the national project “Safe and High-Quality Motorways”.
In 2018, SecurOS Soffit was first presented at the IT Awards “Digital Vertices” and won the award for the best solution for the Smart City. For two years the ISS team worked to improve the complex, taking into account the wishes of the administrations of the regions where the pilot installations have been carried out.
The appearance of the complex has changed – the LED spotlight design has changed as well as the system’s functionality was modernized – a pulsating illumination mode was added to draw drivers’ attention to people crossing the road. ISS specialists have improved the quality of neural network algorithms for pedestrian tracking and LED module operating modes.
Moreover, SecurOS Soffit has been integrated with the SecurOS Crossroad photo-video recording system for detecting failures to yield to a pedestrian. The work of two complexes together ensures that the solution earns its.
During 2020, successful pilots were conducted in a number of Russian regions. Most recently, the complexes have started operating permanently in the Arkhangelsk Oblast. Look at what it was like in a local TV report https://vimeo.com/493313799.
This year SecurOS Soffit has also become the «silver» winner of the All-Russian competition to identify effective solutions to current socio-economic problems “Smart. Evolution”, organized by the Agency for Strategic Initiatives (Russia).
The victory in the Road Industry Accelerator was has become another confirmation of the relevance of the ISS solution and its capacity to be scaled up in the country. We hope that SecurOS Soffit will truly become a tool that will help to reduce the mortality rate on Russian roads and are glad that the professional community supports our solution.
