Expert: the rules must be tightened for users of electric scooters

The number of crashes involving electric scooters, single-wheelers and similar personal mobility devices (SIM) has almost tripled since the start of the year. This data from the Ministry of the Interior, in a conversation with RT, was commented on by the vice-president of the National Motorists Union Jan Heitseer.

According to the expert, citizens who use electric scooters “ feel like pedestrians moving at high speed. '' “ They don't obey any rules, they don't follow any logic, '' & mdash; added & nbsp; Heitseer.

He noted that in this situation only the introduction of fines and other sanctions against users of electrical equipment will be helpful.

Heitseer recommended referring to the experience of foreign countries where there are restrictions on the capacity and speed of the SIM card, and also suggested introducing the right to drive them.

“If a scooter is over 250 watts it is pretty much the same as a motorcycle and presents the same danger to pedestrians and cars”, & mdash; Heitseer said.

The expert also noted the need to introduce & nbsp; responsibility & nbsp; for the use of drunk electrical equipment.

Previously, the Ministry of Interior of the Russian Federation released statistics on accidents involving personal mobility equipment. & nbsp; Compared to the same period of 2020, the increase in the number of such accidents amounts to almost 195%.

Recall that roller skates, scooters, electric scooters, skateboards, electric skateboards, gyroscopic scooters, segways, electric unicycles and other similar means of transport belong to SIM. The legal status of the means of individual mobility in the Russian Federation has not yet been determined.

In early June, the mayor of Kislovodsk, Alexander Kurbatov, underwent surgery after being seriously injured after falling from an electric scooter.

Before that, in St. Petersburg, a criminal case was initiated against a girl who, while traveling on an electric scooter, hit a child and fled.

With experts, we noted that the quality of decisions for the final has significantly increased compared to the qualifying stages, that is, the cases really help promising young people to develop professional skills and throw solid foundations for building a successful career. & # 39; & # 39;

In this sense, it is curious how the fate of participants in the championships of previous years developed. contacted several of them and learned their stories.

Reason for moving forward

Sophomore from St. Petersburg State Electrotechnical University named after Lenin Anton Akimkin at 20 years. He participated in CASE-IN last year because it was interesting to do an internship at Rosatom, and the competition gave him such an opportunity. Anton came to the competition with his classmates.

“ Took part in the direction of 'Digital Atom', & ndash; said the guy. & ndash; The team was tasked with creating a program that would show production crashes. The guys and I have come up with a system that determines when the machine needs to be repaired and sends messages about malfunctions. They also developed a cool browser interface. & # 39; & # 39;

The desire that drew the young man to the championship came true: participation in an engineering competition allowed him to do an internship at Rosatom. And after that he even got a permanent job in the company and now combines it with his studies.

“ In addition to the job, the championship taught me to work as a team, & ndash; said Antoine. & ndash; I figured out how to deal with cases, looking at different issues from all sides. And of course, I am very happy that, while still being a student, I am already working. It gives me confidence and a reason to be proud of myself. I won't stop there. Victory & ndash; this is a reason to move on. ''

Head of HR department at JSC Greenatom; Natalia Pichugina said, “CASE-IN is a 'bridge' between promising students and large companies, so it is of particular importance to all parties. Rosatom She is competing in the championship for the third year, and this season we have seen some interesting solutions: chatbots, websites and even video game offers.

“ By participating in competitions and projects, I not only gained knowledge and skills, but also professional knowledge which brought me here, which I am very happy about '' # 39 ;, & ndash; said the girl.

Last year Yulia became the championship silver medalist. His team had a difficult case: in 10 days they had to figure out how to modernize Russia's unified energy system. The guys decided to synchronize the work of the energy systems of Siberia and the Far East and prepared a project for this, and also came up with solutions for the development of the energy interconnection between Russia and Kazakhstan and the Trans-Caucasus.

“ We thought about integrating the Norilsk-Taimyr Energy Center into the Russian ESU and even came up with a plan on how to do it, & ndash; she says. & ndash; The head during the competition was overloaded with analyzes and calculations. Additionally, before proceeding with the solution, we analyzed thematic information, a stack of documents, and went through all the latest energy related news. It's great that our work and ideas were so appreciated. & # 39; & # 39;

As a multiple participant in CASE-IN, Yulia Pitko is included in the Championship Hall of Fame along with other participants, experts and organizers who have made significant contributions to its development.

Yulia is now working as a specialist in the SO UES branch; & ndash; Regional Distribution Office of the Electricity System of the Krasnoyarsk Territory and the Republic of Tyva and believes that participation in the Engineering Championship helped her find a job. During the interview she was quickly recognized and immediately offered to join the team.

Ivan and his team were solving a case related to the development of an energy cluster in the Far East. And the young professionals presented a double solution to the members of the jury.

“ The result is a multi-level project, & ndash; recalls Ivan. & ndash; We proposed to build a cleaning plant and 'useful' & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; use of CO₂ in a cogeneration plant (CHP) in Komsomolsk-on-Amur. The second part of our solution is & ndash; build a large greenhouse complex for growing vegetables next to the CHPP boiler room. This is where the carbon dioxide should go. ''

According to him, participation in the championship has helped develop a topical professional skill for the last pandemic year: the ability to work as a team in a remote format. The stages of the competition were happening remotely, so the team had to call every day, 'meet' ' by conference call and discussing ideas.

“It was a challenge, but we did a great job! “& Ndash; summarizes Shiryaev. & nbsp;

“ One of the main goals of the championship & ndash; creation of case studies that will be scaled up and applied in the industry.

How difficult it is to protect a project

Mikhail Golovchak , 34, resident of Mirny, works in the logistics department of Alrosa. Like Ivan, he learned about the Engineering Championship from his colleagues. And he went to the competition with a team of three & ndash; all employees of the company.

Young specialists from Yakutia had to deal with the case of the formation of modern business ecosystems.

“ First of all, we found out what a business ecosystem is and how it works, & ndash; Michael shares. & ndash; Then they started to think about an ecosystem development strategy through our Alrosa. We decided that for this companies had to create a common fund and attract the state. & # 39; & # 39; & Nbsp;

He finds the experience of participating in the Engineering Championship very useful. It was interesting to delve into an unfamiliar area related to business development.

“Gaining new knowledge is always valuable, & ndash; adds Michel. & ndash; And I also felt again how difficult it is to defend a project in front of experts. I was a little worried, but understood that it is important for the development of professional qualities. ''

Chief geologist of AK ALROSA (PJSC) Konstantin Garanin believes: “ The Championship provides an opportunity for communication between young people and established professionals in the industry, which is unique in itself. AK ALROSA (PAO) is a partner of the championship for the third year. We see the project as a platform to see talented young people and their subsequent invitation into the company.

After all, the biggest Russian companies are eyeing the participants in the championship & ndash; Sibur, Alrosa, SO UES, RusHydro, Rosatom, Tatneft, nbsp; NIPIGAZ, Mike and others.

And some companies organize their own championships based on the CASE-IN methodology. For example, 4 years ago, the Sverdlovsk and Saratov branches of T Plus (the largest private company in the field of electricity and heat supply in Russia) became pilot sites to test the heat. Effectiveness of this methodology in order to increase the involvement of young specialists in the work of the company. As a result, it was decided to include the International Engineering Championship in the annual Youth Work in Business Program. And since 2019, youth teams from the 16 regions where T Plus is present have participated in the corporate championship.

Thus, the main CASE-IN season in 2021 is over. However, this year's engineering competition doesn't end there. The Fall Cup will start very soon, the final of which will be held in September and will traditionally bring together talented and motivated young people.
