Driverless Locomotive and Local trains.

Recommended Posts

Do you feel similar to driverless cars automation technology, there could be Driverless Locomotive and Local trains automation in the future?

If yes, how ? How the automation will work where the train is driven without a motorman?

If no, why? Is it because too many risks involved? Not feasible to automate ?

Thanks & Regards,

If yes, how ?

Train has schedule to depart at a certain time and then uses image recognition to ensure no passengers are too near the train prior to departing.

That said I don't see them automated anytime soon not because it isn't possible but because people are unpredictable and it is safer to have a train driver and security than not have them.
