Railways finalises two firms for train collision prevention system

The Indian Railways (IR) has selected two firms for installing the much awaited Train Collision Avoidance System (TCAS) to prevent accidents in the 200 km Vikarabad-Bidar region as a pilot project. Medha Servo and Kernex Microsystems were selected among six contenders, including a few multinational companies, by the Research, Designs and Standard Organisation (RDSO) of the Indian Railways. The pilot project, which aims at preventing accidents, is estimated to cost about Rs 18 crore while the trials on Vikarabad-Bidar region in South Central zone are expected to be completed in about eight months time by February 2014. TCAS is based on a combination of railway signalling data with radio communications, global position, radio frequency identification devices, software and logic.
