The laboratory was opened in September 2014 with support from the Main Directorate for Road Traffic Safety of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Republic of Tatarstan. Today the organization both supervises and advises laboratory activities.
Research at the center is multidisciplinary. We identify problems, study them, and then solve them, interacting with the university's industrial partners, departments and laboratories (for example the Higher Institute of ITIS Laboratory of Digital Media, Department of Autonomous Robotic Systems, Department of Intelligence Search Systems). In addition, we take part in online Master's programs together with the Kazan State University of Architecture and Engineering with a view to improving the process for traffic safety.
The laboratory's main aim is to increase the mobility and safety of people, as well as keep them better informed while on the road. All of our projects are already under development and devoted solely to this end.
“TerraCognita: graphic model of Automated Traffic Control System (ATCS). This project is based on a software core which automatically creates and edits virtual 3D towns according to public and satellite data with cloud editing for architects, and is used to model and edit a town or room. It is designed as a cross-platform tool for the modelling and forecasting of road traffic. There are possibilities for program integration with ATCS.
“Safety passport”. This project provides interactive information for: evacuation of a building to a specific point in case of emergency; a safe route to school, etc. The project makes it possible to create three-dimensional interactive content of building layouts, and also additional image content for added realness.
“Intelligent Navigation Systems”. This project differs from competing solutions in that it makes maximal use of car-to-car and car-to-infrastructure cooperation. Navigation systems inform drivers of dangerous sections of road, give warning about upcoming pedestrian crossings, supply useful information on a town's infrastructure and can be operated by voice control.
