Satellite based monitoring system to monitor train movement!

At least, some woes of railway passengers will be reduced in few months. By next year, all trains except local and suburban trains will be equipped with systems so that their movement is monitored by Satellite Imaging for Rail Navigation (SIMRAN).

By this facility, you can know the precise location of the train through interactive modes on your laptop or mobile removing the necessity for a telephonic enquiry. It also records the speed of the train and location, which was done manually until now. According to the railway board chairman, this facility would be adopted in high density routes as soon as possible which will cover about 3,300 KM.

Some of the measures being taken include provision of internet in running trains, IP-based train control communication and extension of optical fibre cable over the entire rail route. We do not know if they happen but if they will, passengers are going to get benefitted a lot!
