Artificial Intelligence to be deployed in Indian Railways for secure travel

Railways will effectively use the artificial intelligence to prevent the possibility of signal failing. The signal system for safe rail operations is important and the railway is fully dependent on the signal with real-time information. Currently, the railways use a human maintenance system.

A senior official of the Railway Ministry associated with this project said, “We now intervene to monitor the continuous online monitoring of power supply systems including signal, track circuit, excel counter and interlocking sub-system, relay, timer, voltage, and current. And do not use sensors to start monitoring the remote situation.

This mechanism works for collecting information at predetermined intervals and sends it to a central location. As a result, any type of defect or problem can be detected in the signal system in real time and possible delays, as well as accidents, can be avoided. The failure of the signal is one of the main reasons for rail accidents and delay in train accidents.

Currently, there is a remote monitoring of the signal in the UK. The system has been envisaged to send information through a wireless (3G, 4G, and high-speed mobile signal) and based on this information; data will be used for predictive and instructional analysis of large information with the help of artificial intelligence.

The official said, “It will project any kind of disturbance priorly.” The railway has decided that it will be tested in two parts of Western Railway and South Western Railway-Ahmedabad-Vadodara and Bangalore-Mysore. Depending on the response, the system will gradually be extended to other sections.

Diesel engine will be shut down in 5 Years

Central Coal and Railway Minister Piyush Goyal said on Tuesday that the diesel engine will be completely excluded from the Indian Railways in the next 5 Years and the power engine will be used, in which the maximum emphasis is on increasing speed. Goyal, while addressing the members of the National Executive Council of FICCI, said, “We have planned to run all trains in the next 5 years with the electric engine.”

He said that by excluding the diesel engine, the Railways would be saving Rs 11,500 Crore annually. He said, “Diesel engine will be kept for backup in the yard.”

This modification in the operation will also effectively help to reduce the emission levels up to some extent and ultimately contribute in India’s aim to operate totally on renewable energy by 2030.
