Indian Railways to start with their new railway tracking routes through Google Maps which can be tracked by mobile phones, laptops and computers.
The Centre for Railway Information Systems (CRIS) in association with Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) created a GPS-based solution which can tell the location of the trains with an accuracy of 10 metres, and latency of 2 minutes, on the basis of real time.
This GPS-solution will cost about Rs. 70,000 to 1,00,000 per train. And it will be equipped in 100 trains at first. After observing its success it will be facilitated in other trains.
V A Chopra, MD of CRIS said that, this time the government is focusing to stop the accidents of the trains and will also and will be fitted this device in all the trains by the end of 2013. This new facility will be uploaded very soon in indianrailways.gov.in
