Luxoft Integrates Horizon into ERA-GLONASS

Luxoft (NYSE:LXFT), a leading provider of software development services and innovative IT solutions to a global client base, announces the successful integration of its next-generation visualization framework Horizon into the navigation and information platform for ERA-GLONASS.

Luxoft has successfully completed the task set by Non-Commercial Partnership GLONASS (NP GLONASS), the system's only operator, to provide multiple views of call processing data for subsequent analysis of ERA-GLONASS performance.

Horizon is an advanced data visualisation system initially designed by Luxoft for financial applications. Its integration in the ERA-GLONASS platform is the first deployment of the system outside of Luxoft's financial product line, proving the flexibility of this product and the strong potential for its application in the high-end data visualisation segment. Horizon differentiators are based on its functionality and friendly UX (user experience) design. One of the benefits offered by the system is the more efficient decision-making process based on graphical presentation of different data arrays. It collects data from a number of sources to present the final result in an optimised, user- and visually-friendly oriented format that helps quickly absorb crucial information. This touch-based system ensures effective decision-making, delivering crucial information timely to those who are in the office or “on the go”, irrespective of geographic location.

"Our system enables real-time acquisition of visualised data about ERA-GLONASS performance on different platforms and devices. Engineers and employees of the ERA-GLONASS operator and other users can track real-time data 24/7, including automatic and manual tracking of emergency calls and responses of the police, ambulance and other emergency services. Horizon allows for benchmarking across different Russian regions, thus making it possible to assess emergency trends, accident rates, distribution of false alarms, etc. The collected data facilitates the decision-making process and improving ERA-GLONASS’ performance in a particular region. Horizon helps not only to analyse ERA-GLONASS call processing with increased visibility and efficiency, but also visualise technical problems with access to external data users, since all activities are displayed on mobile devices and on computers in the emergency response centre. With these capabilities in place, this data visualisation system provides on-going status updates for all calls processed within the ERA-GLONASS system," says Alexander Gurko, President of NP GLONASS. Visual templates were designed and developed by Luxoft's leading experts to have all required information no farther than two clicks away from the main dashboard. Coupled with a modern interface, smooth animation and consistent design, data visualisation makes the system friendly for all users, from engineers and analysts to executives.

With its excellent usability and work flow coordination, Horizon is a powerful tool that does not require time-consuming personnel training. Full-scale HTML5 adaptation gives Horizon a uniform interface across all devices and platforms, including mobile applications.

"We are proud that in addition to its successful track record in the financial industry as a risk management and analysis tool, our advanced data visualisation product is now used in ERA-GLONASS - a project that is a major technological milestone for Russia. We believe that Horizon, being a part of ERA-GLONASS, should make functional controls much easier and performance analysis of the system much simpler," says Dmitry Loschinin, President and CEO of Luxoft. "It is not our first significant engagement within the ERA-GLONASS project. In October 2013, our team successfully completed the full cycle development of the navigation and information platform for ERA-GLONASS. Integrating Horizon into this advanced platform will take its capabilities to another level. At the same time, it demonstrates again superior expertise that our company can bring to clients in designing diversified products that span across a number of industries."

On NP GLONASS and ERA-GLONASS platform

The only designer of ERA-GLONASS is NP GLONASS, a federal navigation network operator. The purpose of ERA-GLONASS is to reduce the delay before the information on the time and place of a road traffic accident or incident is delivered to emergency response services, which will save lives and health of the driver and passengers of the vehicle. ERA-GLONASS will help to save circa 4,000 people annually by reducing the response delay by up to 30%, according to experts. The system was brought online in 2014. Its infrastructure operates all over Russia. ERA-GLONASS is comprised of navigation and information platform, MVNO and data transfer networks, as well as ERA-GLONASS car terminals. To ensure reliability of the system, redundancy of all of its elements is secured.

Emergency response service call via the ERA-GLONASS car terminal will be free throughout the vehicle's lifetime. According to the Customs Union Technical Regulation On the Safety of Wheeled Transportation Vehicles (as amended on 30 January 2013), effective dates of the mandatory requirements to equip the relevant vehicles with ERA-GLONASS terminals are as follows:

  • Starting 1 January 2015 – vehicles undergoing the type approval procedure for the Technical Regulation for the FIRST time
  • Starting 1 January 2016 – vehicles for commercial transportation of passengers, as well as hazardous cargo or solid household waste and garbage (garbage trucks) to be utilised in the Customs Union member states
  • Starting 1 January 2017 – ALL vehicles to be utilised in the Customs Union member states

On 28 December 2013, the President of the Russian Federation signed Federal Law On the ERA-GLONASS State Automated Information System. The state customer of the ERA-GLONASS system design is Russia's Ministry of Transport. On 30 December 2013, the Ministry of Transport signed a contract for the roll-out of ERA-GLONASS in 2014 with NP GLONASS, a federal navigation network operator.
