The first driverless metro train was run by the Delhi Metro on the Magenta Line on December 28 for the first time in the country. However Miniratna company BEML has gone a step ahead of this. Now it has produced such metro through indigenous technology.
BEML was founded in 1964
63 percent goods made in the metro in the country
Driver’s cabin is not
Bharat Earth Movers Limited has built the first driverless metro developed in the country under a self-sufficient India mission. In this metro built on the concept of Make in India, 63 percent of the goods are manufactured in the country. The Defense Minister himself unveiled this metro at BEML’s Bangalore plant.
The Defense Minister tweeted that ‘I am proud of the magnificent work that the team of engineers and technicians at BEML is doing. They are true warriors of self-reliant India, who are taking India forward on the path of development. I am very happy to unveil the unmanned metro (unmanned metro) built by you day and night.
This is how Driverless Metro operates
The driverless metro does not have a driver’s cabin facing forward. Another feature of the driverless metro is that if anything is lying on the rail track at a distance of 50 meters, it will automatically stop. This will also reduce the possibility of accidents. These driverless metro will run under grade of automation technology. In this, the metro runs automatically, not by the driver. But for the time of emergency the driver stays in the train.
