New Delhi. Now people will be able to get the latest updates of the running train moment by moment. Keeping in mind the convenience of the people, Railways has installed Real Time Train Information System (RTIS) equipment for 2700 locomotives. With this, train related information will be updated every 30 seconds. This technology has been developed in collaboration with ISRO.
According to Indian Railways, Real Time Train Information System (RTIS) is being installed in locomotives for automatic tracking of train movement timings at stations including arrival and departure or rehearsal. In the Control Office Application (COA) system, they automatically prepare tables on the control charts of trains. RTIS will update the mid-section at an interval of 30 seconds. Train Control can now more closely monitor the location and speed of RTIS enabled locomotives/trains without any human intervention.
RTIS equipment for 2700 locomotives has been installed in 21 Electric Loco Sheds across the country. As part of the second phase roll out, 6000 more locomotives will be inducted in 50 loco sheds using ISRO’s SATCOM hub. Presently, around 6500 locomotives (RTIS and REMMLOT) are being directly loaded into the Control Office Application (COA). This will enable passengers to get automatic charting of trains and instant information.
