The engineers from Pakistan Railways, in collaboration with University of Engineering and Technology (UET) engineers, have successfully developed a state-of-the-art digital railway driving system.
This groundbreaking system not only enhances safety by preventing accidents but also offers clear track visibility of up to 700 metres, even in smoggy conditions.
A spokesperson for the PR said on Wednesday the system prominently displays track clearance information on the driver’s screen, ensuring obstacle-free operations.

The successful trial of this system involved engineers from the University of Engineering and Technology and is initially slated for installation in four engines, with plans for gradual expansion to cover all trains in the coming year.
Anticipating the challenges of smog and reduced visibility in the upcoming season, Pakistan Railways CEO Shahid Aziz tasked the Chief Signal Engineer to develop a zero-visibility obstacle detection system.
