DELHI (Metro Rail News): Dr Mangu Singh, Managing Director inaugurated the final field trials of India’s first ever Indigenous Automatic Train Supervision System (i-ATS) on the red line virtually on Thursday, 24th March. The event happened in the presence of Directors and senior officials at Metro Bhawan.
The i-ATS has been developed by a joint team of DMRC & Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL). This development will make DMRC more self-reliant in the field of Metro Train Signalling and will boost the Government of India’s ‘Make in India’ initiative.
Delhi Metro on December 24 last year had entered into the 20th year of its operations and marked the occasion by commencing a field trial of the i-ATS technology.
ATS is a computer-based system, which manages train operations. This system is indispensable for high density operations such as the metro, where services are scheduled every few minutes.
