Alcohol interlock for drivers + GLONASS. Collaboration of digital technologies for the safety of cargo and passenger transportation

SpaceTeam has integrated a new digital service – driver sobriety monitoring based on the intelligent alcohol Dräger Interlock – into the classic ST Flagman Web Fleet Managment System (FMS). The service provides 100% safety of transport operations by excluding cases of alcohol intoxication of drivers.

As part of the ST Flagman Web solution, alco interlock works in close collaboration with the GLONASS system. We are talking not just about the alcoholic interlock as a separate device, but about a whole complex that uses GLONASS data to ensure safety and monitor the driver. It is connected to a telematics monitoring system and, in addition to blocking the engine in case of alcohol vapor detection, automatically transmits data to the management and dispatchers of fleets about passing tests.

The use of a device developed by Dräger, the world's leading manufacturer of sobriety monitoring solutions, completely eliminates the car driving without first passing a test, identifying the driver and checking his condition for the presence of ethyl alcohol vapors. In the case of a positive test, when the concentration of ethyl alcohol vapors in the exhaled air is higher than normal, the alcohol lock blocks the ignition of the vehicle.

The device cannot be deceived by improvised means, since it is equipped with a set of special sensors that recognize important physiological parameters.

Any attempts to manipulate the device are also taken into account, as well as substitution of the test person is excluded, photo and video recording is enabled during the test.

Alexey Smyatskikh, CEO of SpaceTeam, notes: "We consider the installation of an alcohol interlock not as a means of punishment for the driver, but as a means of preventing violations. Security is an important component of the digital development strategy of any Russian transport enterprise. The new service provides a high level of safety of passenger and cargo fleets, completely excluding alcohol intoxication of drivers. Similar devices have long been used in Europe, the USA and Australia. According to the statistics of the use of alcoholic interlocks, the number of road accidents involving drunk drivers is reduced by 2.2 times."
