New Delhi (India), 7th March 2023: Indian Railways is looking to enhance their Real Time Information System (RTIS) with a collaboration Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), on locomotives “for automatic acquisition of train movement timing at the stations, including that of arrival and departure or run-through”.
The ministry also said in a statement, “Real Time Train Information System (RTIS), developed in collaboration with ISRO, is being installed on the locomotives for automatic acquisition of train movement timing at the stations, including that of arrival & departure or run-through. They get automatically plotted on the control chart of those trains in the Control Office Application (COA) system,”
Due to this now the train control can track the real time location of the trains without any manual any intervention.
The ministry also commented on the GPS system and said, “(GPS system ) is being directly fed into the Control Office Application (COA). This has enabled automatic charting of trains and real time information flow to passengers through COA and NTES integration.”
