Train Delays to Reduce as Pakistan Railway Launches Anti-Fog Device

Pakistan Railway has launched a new digital system that will enable the drivers of trains to operate them safely and smoothly in foggy and smoggy conditions. The system, called the ‘Digital Railway Driving System’, is a result of a collaboration between Pakistan Railway and the University of Engineering Taxila.

The system will display the track clearly up to 700 meters and also identify signals, level crossings, gates, trespassing, and other hazards on the way. The system will also show the speed and distance of the train and alert the driver if there is any deviation from the standard operating procedure.

The system is expected to improve the timely movement of trains during foggy days and also prevent accidents that often occur due to poor visibility. The system will also reduce the dependence on manual signals and human intervention.

The system was inaugurated by Chief Executive Officer Pakistan Railways Shahid Aziz along with Divisional Superintendent Railway Lahore Muhammad Hanif Gul at the Lahore railway station. The system was initially installed in four engines, with plans to expand it to all trains in the coming year.

CEO Railways Shahid Aziz said that the system was developed by a team of engineers from the University of Engineering Taxila under the supervision of Professor Dr. Muhammad Aslam. He said that the system was tested and verified by Pakistan Railway’s technical experts and was found to be effective and reliable.

He said that the system was a milestone achievement for Pakistan Railway and a step towards modernizing and upgrading its infrastructure. He said that the system would enhance the safety and efficiency of train operations and also save fuel and electricity.

He said that Pakistan Railway was committed to providing quality service to its passengers and improving its performance. He said that Pakistan Railway was also working on other projects such as track rehabilitation, signal upgradation, locomotive procurement, and passenger facilitation.

He thanked the University of Engineering Taxila for its cooperation and support in developing the system. He said that Pakistan Railway would continue to collaborate with academic institutions and research organizations to introduce new technologies and innovations in its operations.

He also appealed to the public to cooperate with Pakistan Railway and refrain from trespassing on railway tracks or damaging railway property. He said that such acts not only cause losses to Pakistan Railway but also endanger the lives of passengers and railway staff.

He said that Pakistan Railway was taking strict action against those involved in such activities and would not spare anyone who violated the law. He urged the public to report any suspicious or illegal activity on railway premises or tracks to Pakistan Railway’s helpline or police.
