What Does the ATMA Machine Check?

While maintaining zero human contact, the ATMA machine checks:

 

• Body Temperature
• Presence of Face Mask
• Ticket
• ID Card of Passengers

 

How Does the ATMA System Of Indian Railways Work?

When passengers will reach the station, the machine will scan their body temperature. Whether or not there is a mask on the face will also get investigated by the machine. After this, the passenger has to show the ticket and identity card in the high definition camera installed in the ATMA machine of Indian Railways. After all the investigations are done, a microphone will provide a notice to proceed.

The result of the test will be shown to the passenger on the LED screen. An RPF personnel stationed nearby will also keep an eye on the screen and the passengers. Entry into the station will not be allowed if the body temperature of the passenger is found high. Commercial ads will also be displayed at some places on the screen.

 

How the ATMA System will Help Fight COVID-19

India is fighting with the severe condition of the situation created from the COVID-19. In such a situation everyone is being advised to follow the social distancing to avoid the infection of COVID-19. Indian Railways are operating 200 special passenger trains from June 1st continuously. After the operations of these trains, the Indian railways also have a big challenge to provide proper infrastructure to passengers so they can travel without any fear of getting infected by the coronavirus.

 

The new idea of this ATMA system will ensure and upgrade the safety of the passengers. This contactless technology of ATMA will also help in maintaining social distancing as no railway officials will have to get in touch with the passengers for the ticket checking purposes or the thermal screening of the passengers travelling in the special trains.
