Even such old technical means like radio, may undergo significant changes. The development of Omsk innovative company “HF communication” made a splash at the International Speleological Congress in the Czech Republic: new two-way radio was able to communicate under the ground that was previously considered impossible in principle. This portable device allows you to talk without interference in the distance of at least 100 meters. On the surface of the earth this device allows to send voice messages up to 50 kilometers. The station allows you to communicate in caves and mines. The development of Omsk inventors has already attracted an interest of EMERCOM rescue units from Yakutia.
Another innovative type of wireless communications was invented specifically for the taxi drivers. It was offered by the Krasnoyarsk innovators from the TreeTalk company. They propose to replace the taxi two-way radios by the terminals for wireless voice communication, which will be connected through wireless networks. There are plenty of such networks in the cities (for example, data networks of mobile phone carriers and Wi-Fi hotspots). The project was supported by the regional business incubator; the required investments are estimated at 35 million rubles.

Krasnoyarsk innovators offered the Novelty in Wireless communications specifically for taxi drivers.
The new project of TreeTalk LLC has found the support of the regional business incubator. The company has already become its resident. In general, the required investments are estimated at 35 million rubles. Money is needed for the development of equipment and network infrastructure.
Nowadays, the two-way radio for a taxi is a necessary mean of information transfer. Selecting the radio, taxi drivers usually take into account the capacity, number of channels, and reliability. It is also important the way radio works.
Typically, radio transmitters, which are now installed in a taxi, are of poor quality and do not provide a connection for more than 500 meters [Actually, it’s a misprint, evidently. The distance may vary up to 30 km, but the quality will be progressively decreased – Note of translator]. Therefore, in order to improve the quality of communications, the project of the wireless voice terminal is developed.
“With the introduction of our invention, the connection will be carried out through wireless data networks, which are covering the city, for example, via mobile phone networks and WI-Fi. The voice uplink will be of a digital quality. Also the reliability of its work will be ensured,” Igor Yanovskiy (the inventor of the terminal, the CEO of TreeTalk LLC) said.
