PM Narendra Modi to flag off India’s first driverless train on Magenta Line on Monday



NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday will flag off the country’s first-ever fully automated driverless train service on Delhi Metro’s Magenta Line (Janakpuri West to Botanical Garden). He will also launch the fully operational National Common Mobility Card (NCMC) for travel on the Airport Express Line the same day.


The technological l of driverless operations, which comes as Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) completes 18 years of operations on December 24, has been made possible in the 37-km-long Magenta Line and the k Line (Majlis Park-Shiv Vihar) due to a state-of-the-art Communication-Based Train Control (CBTC) signalling technology. Compared with the technology used in older Metro corridors, CBTC allows more efficient and safe train operations.

由于采用了最先进的基于通信的列车控制(CBTC)信号技术,在37公里长的地铁“洋红线”和“粉色线”(Majlis Park-Shiv Vihar)上实现了无人驾驶的技术飞跃,恰逢德里地铁公司(DMRC)于12月24日运营满18年。与旧地铁使用的技术相比,CBTC可实现更高效、更安全的列车运营。

DMRC has been carrying out trial runs in driverless mode in non-revenue hours and has also got its signalling sy em reviewed by experts for eventual implementation of Unattended Train Operation (UTO) phase.


In driverless operations, DMRC will replace drivers with ‘roaming attendants’ who will be trained in driving trains. But instead of being stationed at the driver’s cabin, they will move up and down the train to assist passengers in need.

Even with drivers, India trains have many accidents. With driverless, it might improve. If its indigenous made, then we will see it fly off the rail.
