New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will flag off the country’s first driverless metro train service on December 28. He will be flagging off the first driverless train on the 37-km long Magenta Line (Janakpuri West to Botanical Garden).
The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) in its statement also said that PM Modi will launch a fully operational National Common Mobility Card for travel on Airport Express Line on the same day.
The driverless train will be equipped with high resolution cameras, real-time train monitoring equipment, remote handling emergency alarm and other high-level techniques.
The high resolution cameras have the capability to sense problems in the railway track. It also informs the control room about the problems in track. At present, it will be controlled by the command centre.
