Indigenous signaling technology

The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation has taken an initiative to develop an indigenously built signaling technology for metro trains in line with the government’s ‘Make in India’ program. Recently, i-ATS, an important sub-system of the signaling system, is now launched. 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. The indigenously developed technology, i-ATS will reduce the dependence of Indian metros on foreign vendors.

The technology can work with Train Control & Signaling Systems of different suppliers. Predictive maintenance module shall also be introduced in the Phase IV corridors using the i-ATS system, the statement said.
