MUMBAI: Central Railway has begun to conduct trial runs of a single rake to ensure the train does not jump red signals. It has decided to provide an additional layer of safety in the form of an automated voice warning about a red signal ahead in the motorman’s cabin.
CR said the audio message will help motormen avoid jumping red signals as most accidents occur due to a momentary lapse of concentration.
In electrical multiple unit (EMU) rakes along the suburban section, the auxiliary warning system (AWS) device is fitted inside the motorman’s

cabin. The device, through a series of magnets and sensors, ensures the train halts immediately after jumping a red signal.
The device also sounds a buzzer as soon as the motorman crosses a yellow signal to warn him about the possibility of a red one ahead. The motorman has to then reduce the speed below 38km after the train crosses 290 metres from the previous yellow signal.
A CR official said, “We feel that the motormen are doing a good job in stressful conditions. Hence, an additional feature that will give out a message about the red signal ahead is currently being tried out.”
The official said the trials will be carried out for a few more days as it has to fix the frequency of the announcement, the audio level among such other things.
Apart from technical support to stop signal passing at danger (SPAD) cases, which means crossing the red signal, CR is also trying out personal counselling of motormen as well as their family members to reduce their stress.
