ERA Glonass

Russian Federation GOST 55530

Ensure fast emergency call response time

The Russian Federation wishes to introduce intelligent telematics-based vehicle safety systems that will ensure faster emergency response times and ultimately help save lives. ERA-Glonass is an electronic safety in-vehicle systems (IVS) that automatically dials 112, the universal emergency phone number, and alerts local emergency medical services in the event of a serious traffic accident.

ERA-Glonass transfers the location coordinates calculated from the Glonass satellite constellation, the number of passengers and the time of the accident. A voice connection is established in case any of the passenger are able to speak.

ERA-Glonass and eCall are harmonized, but the Russian system carries additional extensions, such as additional SMS functionality, to better support its national infrastructure. As an important safety system, ERA-Glonass systems must be highly reliable. Testing system components can therefore easily become expensive and time-consuming.

Your challenges and the standardization

The Russian government has mandated that all vehicles sold in Russia must comply with the ERA-Glonass standards (GOST 55530). To ensure that your IVS fully complies with the ERA-Glonass standard, it is necessary to verify that it is able to automatically and manually trigger an emergency call and correctly transmit the minimum set of data (MSD) in the correct format. It is also important that the audio quality of the voice connection is sufficiently high (GOST 55531 audio tests).

Benefits of our solutions

  • Time-saving: software tool with ready-to-use test sequences
  • Realistic: simulation of ERA-Glonass constellation and cellular mobile networks
  • Highly reliable: performance testing to verify all information
