General Manager NCR and NR Sri Rajiv Chaudhry chaired web-based seminar o­n latest development in field of signalling for faster, safer and efficient train operations.

Jhansi-Bina is among the 04 sections of Indian Railways identified for pilot implementation of ETCS level 2 modern signalling system before rollout in New Delhi- Howrah and New Delhi- Mumbai trunk routes

In wake of Covid-19 related lockdown, North Central has started use of o­nline platforms regularly for organising trainings,seminars,meetings, conferences etc . Web Based seminars organised by different departments have been particularly popular among employees as this interactive session also providesthem opportunity to learn from expertsin respectivefields.Signal & Telecom department of North Central Railway has been leading the way in organising suchweb-based seminars and 9thweb-based seminar has been organised o­n European Train Control System (ETCS) Level -2 which is modern signalling system aimed towards safe, efficient and faster train operations.In this webinar Chaired by GM North Central and Northern Railway Sri Rajiv Chaudhry ,about 100 officials from NCR participated along with experts from RailTel and Europe based OEM of this modern signalling system. Mr Thomas Jansson, expert from industry from Sweden gave presentation o­n the latest technology of train control system and also about the pilot project of thismodern signalling i.e. ETCS Level 2 being implemented in Jhansi- Bina section of North Central Railway . Jhansi-Bina section is o­ne of the four routes identified for implementation of this signalling system o­n pilot basis besides Nagpur-Badnera(CR), Renigunta-Yerragunta(SCR) and Vijaynagram- Palasa(ECoR) o­n golden quadrilateral routes. This will help in gaining experience and incorporating required improvements before implementing this latest signalling system i.e. ETCS L-2 in New Delhi- Howrah and New Delhi- Mumbai trunk routes.

This modern signalling called ETCS L-2 isbasically a radio based, continuous automatic train protection system which mitigateany chances of collision by eliminating cases of Signal passing at danger, over speeding etc. ETCS L-2 system also aims to improve the line capacity of the congested trunk routes through centralised traffic control and automatic train controlling system . Thereby increasing throughput capacity i.e. running of more trains in same section.With ETCS-L-2, advance LTE based (4G) communication will be available o­n train which can be used for monitoring of o­nboard CCTV camera provided in coaches remotely from control rooms for enhanced security of the passengers.

This modern signalling system will include o­n-board equipment fitted in locomotives&trainsets, trackside equipment and Radio Block centre which communicate continuously with trains through mobile train radio communication.

Radio Block centre works as brain of this system which are planned 200 kms apart and will have all interlocking data of wayside stations allowing it to maintain safe distance between the two trainsthrough continuous communicationbased o­n capacity of each section & station automatically.

At the outset Shri Arun Kumar PCSTE NCR welcomed Shri Rajiv Chaudhry GM NCR & NR in this webinar .Shri Nirajyadav- Chief Signal Enggineer of NCR briefed participants o­n the seminars organised by NCR.Shri Arun Kumar Saksena- Advisor Signal Railtel&Shri Sandeep MathurDRMJhansi also participated in this webinar .

In his address to participants, Shri Rajiv Chaudhry GM/NCR &NR said that such seminars will help in better understanding of this modern signalling system by our employee. He stressed upon the need to train our workforce o­n latest technological advancements being made in Railways to make our staff self-reliance to meet day to day maintenance needs.Shri Chaudhry also added that proper customization of this modern signalling system according to Indian conditions must be done to suit our requirement as well as to get the desired output from this system.

NCR to use Artificial Intelligence(AI) to improve reliability of signaling gear

In the beginning of lockdown all mandatory and optional training programs had to be deferred to maintain requisite social distancing protocol etc. however realizing the need of prolonged social distancing protocols even after lockdown period it was necessary to organize training programs using o­nline methods so as frontline staff is equipped with latest knowledge for safe and efficient train operation. Now Railway board has formalized o­nline conduct of refresher and other safety courses for running staff. North Central Railway has already made a headway in this direction and about 120 running staff from diesel and electric traction side are under structured o­nline training. With approval from Railway Board now formal evaluation of all trainees shall be done and further batches shall also be dealt in similar fashion till regular classroom training can be restored.

E-Office a digital workplace solution is a very important tool for discharge of official work with social distancing in true sense. With implementation of e-office in Prayagraj division now all three divisions i.e. Agra , Jhansi &Prayagraj and NCR HQ office are equipped with e-office working which will help immensely in social distancing besides ensuring efficient , transparent and paperless working .

NCR has been pioneer in use of technology in operation and maintenance. Latest effort in this direction is use of IOT and AI in field of signaling gear maintenanc . To equip our workforce with requisite knowledge o­n this still evolving field a web basedseminar o­nIOT (internet of things) and AI (artificial intelligence) was organized over video conference. IOT senses data from field and communicates to the central location or cloud. AI processes this data and gives meaningful analysis for generating alerts and analysis. This can help in accurate prediction of health and defects in signaling gear and failures can be avoided by timely attention. o­ne trial system is already working since October 2019 at Vrindawan station of Agra division and so far ithas performed satisfactorily. Work for 05 more such systems in Prayagraj division and similar arrangement for Jhansi division are also in pipeline. This webinar wasorganized by Shri NirajYadav- Chief Signal Engg NCR along with experts from industry which was attendedby 101 participants among S&T officers and supervisors from NCR. Shri Arun Kumar PCSTE NCR and Shri Pradeep Kumar- Member Signal and Telecom Railway Board also joined in this web-basedseminar. Sri Pradeep Kumar emphasized that with IOT and AI we should achieve reduction in signaling failures, improve the reliability of system.
