Talk about enhancing the competitiveness of transport are unfounded, if not enough effort is directed to innovative breakthroughs in technology and systems. But what can be the real possibilities and means of achieving the objectives?
Vectors and backlogs
As one of the tools for the development of advanced commercial technologies offered by the Government Technology Platforms (TP), intended for all stakeholders — business, academia, civil society and the state. Their task — the creation of new products, improvement of the legal framework in the field of science and technology, innovation development. Technology being developed under the TA, affect a number of different sectors of the economy.
In early April, the working group for the development of public-private partnerships for innovation in the Government Commission on High Technology and Innovation, led by Vladimir Putin approved the two platforms, initiated by JSC "Russian Railways" — "High-speed rail intelligent" and "The use of innovative technologies to improve the efficiency of the construction, maintenance and safety of roads and railways "(with" RUSNANO ").
The organization of high-speed and high-speed should give additional impetus to scientific and technological development and the improvement of technology in almost all related industries — from automotive to smart computing. Making this direction stimulate the intellectual potential of the country by placing on enterprises of orders for new equipment.
As stated in the description of the TA, its implementation will in the medium term to ensure the speed of trains to 400 km / h In the long term, however, is expected to create a new form of transport, based on the principles of magnetic levitation, with a speed of up to 1 thousand km / h
Implementation of the second platform should also give a powerful impetus to the development of new industrial organization of groups of goods and nanotechnology solutions, such as the transport of construction, machinery and equipment, logistics, etc. It is expected that its implementation will in the medium and long term to enhance the technical and user settings transport Communications to the level of similar facilities of the European Union.
Despite the fact that all this while was listed only on paper, we can safely say that the industry has the potential technological groundwork for future generations. At the same time, OAO "Russian Railways" is ready to strengthen cooperation with companies that will surely choose the path of modernization. In this regard, a senior vice president Valentin Gapanovich at a recent meeting of the committee of NP "OPZHT" for innovation once again appealed to the producers of technology to make further efforts to produce quality products, increasing innovation activity to make reliable transportation, and attractive tariffs for cargo. This is impossible without the introduction of advanced technologies.
