'Gajraj' will protect elephants on the railway track, this software is equipped with AI technology, so know how it will work
AI-based software Gajraj
To prevent elephant accidents on railway tracks, indian Railways has started the initiative to install the artificial best software, Gajraj. The Railway minister said that Gajraj software works like an armor system and informs the train driver about the activity of elephants on the railway track well in advance, due to which elephants can be prevented from coming into the grip of the train. Let us tell you that many tracks of indian Railways pass through such places where the elephant population is very high and often elephants come on the railway tracks. According to government figures, every year an average of 20 elephants die after being hit by a train. In such a situation, AI-based software Gajraj will play an important role in the protection of elephants.
What is the Gajraj technique?
The Railway minister said that along with the train protection system, a new technology has been invented to protect elephants from being hit by trains in forest areas and it has been implemented in Assam, West Bengal, Odisha, Kerala, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh, tamil Nadu and Uttarakhand. This technology will be installed on more than 700 kilometers of railways. He said that this technology will work with the help of sensors in the OFC line, which will detect the waves of elephant footsteps from a distance of 200 meters and will alert the loco pilot by seeing an alarm in the engine. "He talked about naming this technology, Gajraj".
Armor is an integrated technology of many devices
The Railway minister said that Kavach is an integrated technology of many pieces of equipment. Station armor, loco armor, armor towers, optical fiber cable (OFC), wireless loco towers, track equipment, and signaling come under the armor system. In this system, two separate layers of security system and communication system have been kept. He said that currently three companies – Medha, HBL, and Carnex are producing while GG Tronics has recently been approved. Proposals from two other companies – Kyson and Siemens – are under consideration.
