new Delhi. Today, on the occasion of National Safety Day, Indian Railways demoed the ‘Kavach Safety System’, which proved to be a complete success. In fact, to demo its safety system, the Railways confronted two trains at a full speed of 160 km per hour. During this demo, ‘Kavach’ automatically stopped the train at a distance of 380 meters from the second loco engine.

This demo was done between Santnagar to Lingampalli in South Central Railway near Secunderabad. During this, Railway Minister Ashwini Vaishnav was present in one train and the Chairman was present along with Railway Board officials in the other.

The train did not stop by applying brakes
Let us inform that these two trains were not stopped by applying pilot brake, but it was a test of auto braking by radio communication. Kavach is an automatic trains protection system. Such protection was being needed in the railways for a long time, however now the level crossings on the broad gauge line have been abolished and gates or rob/rub (the road has been made above or below the track) have been made. But, it was necessary to meet the target of increasing the speed of the trains to 160, so that the trains could not collide with the front and back.
