Global Autonomous Train Competitive Landscape
Sheer Analytics and Insights upcoming “Sheer Quadrant” research study on Global Autonomous Train shows the beginning of tomorrow’s highly automated, connected, data driven railway system. The railway system is quietly making advancement towards driverless train. The grade of automation is slowly making advancement from GoA 1 to GoA 4. The railway system is inching closer to aerospace technology with the basics from Automatic Train Control System (ATC). Trains are automatically connected with ATC with sensors playing a fundamental role coupled with Laser Imaging Detection and Ranging (LIDAR), cameras and other electronic components. With minimal power requirement, these play a perfect role in reducing cost and maintenance.
Implementation of Positive Train Control System:
Positive Train Control (PTC) is a processor-based/communication-based train control system designed to prevent train accidents. PTC is capable of handling train movements and speed without the interference of train operator. Several types of PTC systems are installed in the United States railway network some of them are Advanced Civil Speed Enforcement System (ACSES), CBTC, ETMS, ITCS, Safenet System, and Sentinel System. The government regulations for PTC technology is expected to show the roadmap of autonomous train with the mainline railway network in the United States during the forecast period. The Federal government has extended the deadline for installation of PTC technology within the mainline rail network by December 2020.
The Federal Railroad Administration funded approximately $925 million in grants to support railroads’ development and implementation of PTC systems, including nearly $400 million in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funding, $25 million in fiscal year 2016 Railroad Safety Technology Program funding, and $197 million in funding administered by the Federal Transit Administration under the FAST Act.
FRA issued $1 billion loan to the Metropolitan Transportation Authority to implement PTC on the Long Island Rail Road and Metro-North Railroad.
