collision avoidance technology
Railways in developed countries use technology that provides real-time alerts to train operators. This helps them to take immediate action in case of any obstruction or obstruction on the track ahead. At the same time, regular checking of the railway track is also necessary to prevent accidents. This helps the Railways to identify potential threats. In many countries, tracks are inspected with the help of automatic track inspection technology.

Positive Train Control (PTC) System
In many western countries, trains are fitted with advanced signaling systems like Positive Train Control (PTC). If Indian Railways also implements such advanced signaling system in our country, then this technology can apply automatic brakes to prevent possible collision of trains. Every day lakhs of people travel in Indian Railways. Its network comes at number four in the world. In such a situation, considering the safety of the people traveling in the railway, it is very important to modernize it with the help of new technology.

wireless data network
European country Germany is known for its good safety standards and latest technology for railways. Special attention is also paid to the training of railway employees here and regular safety audits are conducted. Similarly, Japan is also known for its modern and secure system of railways. Please tell that Indian Railways needs to make its communication system even more modern. This requires facilities such as the European Train Control System (ETCS), including wireless data networks and real-time reporting tools.
