L&T’s arm successfully tests communication-based automatic train operation

01 Jan 2015

Larsen & Toubro’s (L&T) arm - L&T Hyderabad Metro Rail has successfully test run a train in Automatic Train Operation (ATO) mode for the first time in India in Hyderabad. The metro is the first Indian project to implement communication-based train control system. In this mode, the train operates independently and controls its movement, speed, performance etc. The function of the driver is only to press a button to close the doors at stations and it is a prelude to completely driverless mode which Hyderabad Metro can upgrade any time it wants.

After Hyderabad Metro, the next phase of Delhi Metro has also opted for this technology. Additionally, L&T Infrastructure Development Projects (L&T IDPL) has begun construction of a Rs 1,293 crore road widening project in Odisha, more than a year after bagging the contract for it.
