A developer of navigation solutions, M2M Telematics announced the project in early 2012. Under the contract with the RF Ministry of Industry and Trade, M2M and scientists from the Moscow State Automobile and Road Technical University (MADI) have created a road vehicles identification and surveillance system.

The new system is based on RFID and satellite navigation technologies. According to the developers, the federal system of transport vehicles identification and surveillance will result in higher quality of transport services and better safety of passenger and cargo transportation in Russia.
