Delhi,Business/Economy, Fri, 27 Apr 2012 IANS

New Delhi, April 27 (IANS) The Indian Railways Friday said it plans to deploy over the next 18 months a software to track the movement of all trains over its network.


This will happen through SIMRAN (Satellite Imaging for Rail Navigation), for which a pilot project is going on in 18 pairs of important trains.


"This system provides precise location of the trains through interactive mode on mobile phones and laptops. It eliminates the need for telephonic enquiry," Vinay Mittal, Railway Board chairman said while inaugurating a two-day international convention here on "Modern Train Control for Capacity and Safety Enhancement".


Detailing other steps to improve network safety, Mittal said the railways would install the Train Protection Warning System (TPWS) on a stretch of 3,300 km to cover all high density stations.
