Delhi Metro will create new history on Sunday. For the first time in the country, between the Botanical Garden to Janakpuri West on the Magenta Line, the metro speed will be filled without a driver. Prime Minister Narendra Modi will launch it via video conference at 11 am. He will also issue the National Common Mobility Card (NCMC). This is a new era of travel in the metro.
The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) says that driverless metro trains will be fully automated, requiring minimal human intervention. This will eliminate the possibility of operations being affected due to human errors.
These trains will be operated by giving commands from the central control room built in the metro building. Currently, the metro operates on this corridor at an interval of 5 minutes 12 seconds. The advantage of operating a driverless metro is that after increasing the pressure of passengers, the metro will be operational in just 90 seconds. This will increase the frequency of the metro. After the driverless metro starts operating on 37 km of Magenta Lai, it will run on the Pink Line (Shiv Vihar-Majlis Park) by May-June next year. The Pink Line is about 57 km long.
