Pakistan Railways has conceived indigenous data innovation answer for supporting a strategic distance from prepare mischances under which the prepare moving toward notice framework at level intersections has been settled and five models will be introduced by end-2017 to check the new flagging framework.
Director Ministry of Railways Parveen Agha was informed about the prepare moving toward notice framework at level intersections and prepare crash keeping away from framework (TCAS) here on Wednesday. The motivation behind the preparation was to discover IT and indigenous answers for controlling mischances. It was informed that TAWC has been concluded and five models will be introduced at occupied focuses till December 2017 to check the new flagging framework.
TAWC will include of sensors on the two sides of level intersection at the separation of every 3 kilometers. Sensors will distinguish the development of prepare. There are double sensors which will give excess and reward to variety inside and out. Sirens will likewise be introduced to alarm the people on foot or vehicles. This setup is 2-watt sun based controlled and will be remote. The freedom to bystander might be given after the prepare passed. In any case, this framework will not supersede the duty of train drivers and gate keepers.
This framework will give varying media cautioning signs to vehicles and walker. There will be 7-inch high splendor show for driver’s data. Video of intersection with sensible determination will likewise be given to training drivers when prepare is 3 kilometers away. The framework ought to keep up alert and video sign despite occasion log for time of 15 days. The framework ought to give HD video in driver’s lodge framework. The recurrence will be 433 MHz
Another framework TCAS is additionally been recommended. This framework will maintain a strategic distance from the danger of impact of trains because of human mistake and hardware disappointment. This framework will go about as a guard dog in this framework and radars will be used as a part of trains with the goal that trains can recognize each other. It is a GPS-based framework, which will enlighten the drivers concerning the time, area, speed, and course of go of the moving toward trains that can affect. It will be fitted in trains and brake vans. Accordingly, there will be a long-range remote correspondence between units. There will caution lights.
Both these frameworks are advancing. For use of these frameworks, training will be given to drivers. It was chosen in the meeting that media will be occupied with a request to offer attention to open about TAWC. Sources uncovered there were more than 2,000 unmanned level intersections and out of the 550 were helpless and 143 were the most defenseless unmanned level intersections.
The Railways Ministry has evaluated Rs 25 billion for up-degree of such powerless focuses. Sources additionally said that flag framework at the Main Line (ML-1) would be redesigned under the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) system. The Railways has likewise proposed to build underpasses and flyovers at a powerless level intersection on manufactured work exchange (BOT) premise with the aid of private segment.
As showed by Railways Ministry information, 184 prepare mischances happened at manned/unmanned level intersections amid 2014-16, where 100 people were slaughtered and more than 120 got harmed. Anjum Parvez, Advisor Humayun Rashid, AGMI Munawar Shah, DG Technical, Ambreen Zaman, Chief Electrical Engineer Abdul Malik, DS Rawalpindi Division, CEN Open Lines, COPS, boss mechanical architect trains and boss flag build were additionally present in the instructions.
