According to the functionary, technologyused in trains transferred to Russian Railways is unique. This is a completely domestic development, allowing locomotives to continue driving in any weather conditions, including snow drifts.
Uskova previously stated that unmanned locomotives will be able to run along Russian railways in a couple of years. Now, the director of Cognitive Technologies added that foreign developers could not create an autopilot for our weather conditions, and therefore domestic technology aroused great interest abroad.
In particular, Siemens (Germany) and Stadler (Switzerland) asked to demonstrate the process of autonomous movement of Russian trains. Based on this, Uskova is confident that in the future, unmanned locomotives of Russian Railways will be in great demand all over the world. This is a promising niche for Russia.
We see great potential here.
