Which train safety system will be launched by the Indian Railways to avoid train accidents?
The Terrain Imaging for Diesel Drivers- Infrared Enhanced Optical and Radar Assisted (Tri-NETRA) system will be launched by the Indian Railways to avoid train accidents. The device uses infrared and radar technology to collect signals up to a distance of 2-3 km and displays the information on a screen fitted inside the locomotive. This will give ample time for the driver to apply the brakes. The tri-netra device will alert the drivers of any physical obstruction on railway tracks ahead and thus prevent train accidents. It will be very useful during fog, heavy rain and nights, when drivers have to constantly look outside the locomotive to judge the condition.
