TRI-NETRA Overview

  • TRI-NETRA is abbreviation for Terrain Imaging for Drivers Infrared, Enhanced, Optical & Radar Assisted system.

  • It comprises of infrared camera, optical camera and radar assisted imaging system for assisting loco pilots in identifying obstructions on tracks, mainly during foggy conditions.

  • This device is making an attempt during fog via ultrasonic waves by help of which it will be able to detect any obstruction on tracks.

  • Indian Railways is conducting extensive trials of Tri-Netra technology so as to be sure that it is perfect in detecting any obstruction on tracks during fog

  • Without proper testing it cannot be implemented as it does not give them enough confidence to implement this technology.

  • The field trials being undertaken as a proof of the developed technology and its testing on all parameters will be done once it is procured.
