Rlys to use indigenous tech to prevent mishap

With anti-collision systems installed earlier achieving partial success, Railways on Monday announced installation of an indigenous and efficient technology to prevent train mishaps. The Train Collision Avoidance System (TCAS) has shown positive results during its run as a pilot project in South Central zone, a Railways official said.

TCAS enables the driver to view signal from his cabin itself through a monitor, and also advises the loco pilot about increasing and decreasing train speed, he said. ‘It will cost Rs 10-12 lakh per km to implement. It is far more effective than the previous ones like Train Protection Warning System and anti-collision device,’ Railway member (Electrical) Kul Bhushan said.
