Country's first driver-less train flagged off from New Delhi
18 May 2016 Current Affairs GK: The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) conducted the trial run of the country’s first ever Metro train equipped to run in the driverless mode. The train was ceremonially flagged off by Union Minister for Urban Development M. Venkaiah Naidu and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. The driverless trains will run on the over 58 km-long Majlish Park-Shiv Vihar (Line 7) and the over 38 km-long Janakpuri (West)- Botanical Garden (Line 8) corridors of the Phase-III.

This new-generation driverless metro train equipped to travel on Unattended Train Operations mode and is also with advanced features. It is suitable to eventually run on UTO mode as the train has extremely high levels of automation. Thus, train operators will not be required to operate these trains. The Operations Control Centres (OCC) of the Delhi Metro system will directly regulate the movement of the trains. The On-board CCTV cameras provides inside and outside view of the train. The images from CCTV can be directly accessed by the control centre in driverless mode.

In addition, a green Receiving Sub Station (RSS) was also inaugurated at Mukundpur. It will help to meet the power requirements of the Majlis Park – Shiv Vihar corridor.  The RSS has been designed as a green structure with features such as solar power plant, rain water harvesting and sewage water treatment facilities.
