It is organized on the basis of the infrastructure of the company "RT-invest Transport Systems", the operator of the system "Platon". The use of onboard navigation systems for test participants will take place on a voluntary and free of charge basis.
On the Russian side, 80 devices are used in the event: 60 on trucks and 20 on passenger buses.
It is noted that Moscow and Beijing have agreed to create a pilot zone of the navigation and information support system of transportation. In order to work out the mechanisms for monitoring traffic, the government has signed a corresponding order.

In June last year, when Russia and China signed an intergovernmental agreement on international transport, it spelled out the obligation to equip carriers with satellite control systems. It is predicted that the document will serve the growth of road transport between the States due to the possibility to deliver the goods "door to door". Now the procedure is allowed only on the prescribed routes in the border areas.
