“The immediate task is to deploy the business model. This means launching not three, but 30 drones, taking it to another level,” he said.
He noted that the key task for the successful development of the project is the completion of the construction of the Tver bypass for the M-11 highway, which is scheduled for the second half of 2024. “I am sure that we will master the M-11 highway , drones will drive here. Then we need to radically reduce costs. To do this, we need to increase the hard shoulder, move south or east, to Kazan, Yekaterinburg,” added Belousov.
According to the Deputy Prime Minister, today it is necessary to fight for the transition to the fifth level of autonomy of unmanned vehicles, which implies control without a person in the cockpit. In his opinion, such experiments can begin in Russia in 2025-2026.
