The Federal Autonomous Institution «Russian Road Scientific-Research Institute» (FAI «ROSDORNII») is a subsidiary body of the Federal Road Agency and the largest in Russia road-scientific institute with 12 branch offices across the country.
ROSDORNII participates in the National Project "Safe High-Quality Roads" in a number of key areas and provides scientific support for federal and regional target programs of the Russian Federation.
The Institute develops regulatory and technical documents for the road industry, implements construction control design and inspect road facilities, digitalize the road industry and introduces into practice advanced technologies and materials.
The Institute has developed the Road Funds Control System (SKDF), which contains an up-to-date database of roads, analytical data on road works, road accidents and procurement, and allows monitoring the formation and use of road funds at all levels. The system implements functionality for maintaining plans for the road activities of the regions, including activities for the development of the backbone road network.
In addition, ROSDORNII developed Russia's first wheel load simulator «CYCLOS» for designed to perform accelerated pavement testing. CYCLOS, which has no analogues in the countries of the Customs Union, is designed to conduct accelerated testing of pavements by simulating the continuous application of a given wheel load.
ROSDORNII develops the Concept of National ITS Network - an important component for digital transformation of the Russian transport industry, which increases the efficiency of road network use. ROSDORNII also participates in a project to create the first in Russia ITS pilot zone in the Republic of Tatarstan in the “Alabuga” – industrial-production Special Economic Zone and adjacent sections of roads.
Specialists of ROSDORNII monitor changes in the cost of road construction works, resources and materials, and calculate financial cost standards. This makes it possible to improve the system of pricing and estimated rationing for transport infrastructure, taking into account directions determined by the Government of the Russian Federation.
For road workers FAI ROSDORNII implements the Advanced Training System that includes more than 30 areas of training. Specialists of ROSDORNII conduct webinars and online classes on pressing issues on a regular basis.
ROSDORNII Branch network
Since 2019, ROSDORNII has been maintaining the Register of New and Best Technologies, Materials and Technological Solutions for Secondary Use (RNNT). This is a set of ready to use efficient technologies to increase the strength of pavements, improve energy and resource saving, improve safety and digitalize the road industry.
Also, ROSDORNII is one of the leading service providers in applied areas of road activities. The Institute carries out construction control and inspection of roads and artificial structures. An extensive branch network - the head office and 12 territorial divisions - allow this work to be carried out at the highest level of quality throughout Russia.
