Turin Underground modernizes its technology with Telemecanique solutions
The new Underground is one of the main assets in the improvement and rationalisation program of the public transportation system in the metropolitan area of Turin.
Safety and comfort have been the main criteria adopted to choose the technology for the underground. With the Automated Light Vehicle system, the trains move without a driver, they are driven by safety devices, controlled by computer systems.
Automation and control of such a sophisticated system required the development of complex solutions. And here comes into play Schneider Electric experience: Telemecanique automation solutions have been deployed in the train stations for data acquisition and control, in relation to the operation for the customer’s comfort (elevators, lifts, ventilation, lighting…) and safety (fire alarm, access control, UPS system…)
