Automation Improves Efficiency
Technology is fast disrupting all sectors and the train system is not exempted. There is a lot that can be achieved with technology and automation especially concerning the quality of service delivery among others. One of the requirements that NWRL has to meet is that the trains must incorporate an automated transport system that uses a driverless approach to run its service delivery.
Things were always going to get to this point where there will be a need to embrace technology within the train system. In other parts of the world, automation in the rail system is already a thing, as the trains are driven purely by technological components.
The transport system also improves the precision that comes with the transportation system and the security as well. The security measures are also adequate and ensure safe delivery across board. As such, this is a welcome development that the rail system and the authorities have to embrace going forward.
Also, the automated system improves the issue of timing with train systems. The system is perfect and works on time, such that passengers or goods can get to the points they are going at a precise time. These are some of the issues that arise with the use of humans on these systems, as things may get cluttered and slowed down.
Also, the adoption of the system is aimed at addressing some of the cleaning issues at the train stations. A careful examination shows that the essence of this new automated system is to improve the quality of service delivered within the industry and also places the rail system ahead as one of the most advanced in the country.
This also helps the country with its rankings as a technologically advanced country, thereby placing the country side by side with some of the other top countries of the world. Automated systems increase trains’ running time and also allows more trains to operate at a close range without the risk of one running into the other or any other risk that could otherwise have happened.
This system is not a new thing, so there’s nothing to fear. It has been around and serving many people across the world for over 30 years. There are several studies on automated rail systems and how they have improved the efficiency of the sector. As such, for those worried about the adoption of the system, the system is tested and trusted.
There is no going back with the adoption of the automated system. What the focus should be on is the necessary infrastructure to set in place for the adoption of the system.
