Day of Making 5

What struck me here, was that owing to the touch screen user interface panels, a lot of functions are built into the screens and therefore the control knobs look not too cluttered at all. 

 

And a corporate video, freely available on YouTube:

It looks like it could be on the Starship Enterprise.
Ayush Basu: The displays and the touchscreens make it look very hi-fi, Michael.

On se croirait presque dans un avion.
Ayush Basu: I think even the passenger cabins these days give a similar feeling, Martine.

I am a bit surprised that it needs anything more than a single joystick, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: There is actually a wealth of information monitoring and management systems (air-conditioning, doors interlocking, water levels in the toilets, etc). I would hate to read the user manual for a train, Ray grin

command central

nice tones
Ayush Basu: In addition to the train locomotion, there is information on air-conditioning, doors interlocking, water levels in the toilets, etc, Sherri.
More like a pilot than a driver these days, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: Indeed, Frank.
It sort of doesn't look real!
I like the video!
Ayush Basu: I know exactly what you mean, Elizabeth.
I cannot take credit for the video smile

Yes touchscreens have really de-cluttered the workplace here Ayush
Ayush Basu: The displays and the touchscreens make it look very hi-fi, Chris

The driver could play games on one screen whilst playing you tube videos on the other.
Ayush Basu: They could, Chad. I am told that most of these trains can run automatically - the drivers only keep an eye whether a person or an object is on the track ahead, although there may be limited possibilities to what can be done then.
I suppose it's the next best thing before robots take over, Ayush? "Smooth operator" comes to mind. smile I can see why you enjoyed your time at Stadler after seeing the video.
Ayush Basu: Behind the scenes, there is quite some technology that goes behind the trains and not all of it is known to us, Ginnie.

This is one big adventure place to visit, Ayush. I know you had fun here. That video is wonderful!
Great picture too and yes this is a very "clean" workspace.
Ayush Basu: Oh I had a pleasant couple of hours here, Astrid. It was an open day, they were looking for people to join them at work.
C'est vrai qu'avec l'électronique, les commandes manuelles ont pour beaucoup disparu.
Impressionnant tout de même.
Bonne journée
Ayush Basu: I hope the reliability of the electronics is well tested for robustness, Pascale.

Have just caught upon your previous pictures int his series, Ayush
Ayush Basu: Thank you for looking back in, Lisl.

Well, these trains are impressive. I enjoyed the video.
Ayush Basu: The displays and the touchscreens make it look very hi-fi, Louis.
It all looks so simple, I'm sure it's not. Great video even though I can't understand the commentery.
Ayush Basu: It was an open day here and they were trying to hire new recruits for service and maintenance, Brian. I too did not understand the Dutch language.

A fascinating series of images Ayush.
Ayush Basu: Thank you, Anne.

So very different from the steam locomotives of days long gone. I like the big red panic button!
Ayush Basu: I imagine that hits all the emergency brakes with maximum deceleration, Alan.

very star trekky!! i wouldn't want a touch screen like that, my arm would hurt!!
Ayush Basu: They just seem to be adding more of touch screens in practically every device, Elaine. They will probably be adding those to washing machines and refrigerators soon!
I wonder what the drivers of old who stood on an open footplate in allweathers would make of this Ayush?
Ayush Basu: I presume they would think their modern counterparts are too pampered, Bill.
> Were you on The Enterprise? j/k Looks like it though.
Ayush Basu: I wish, Jacquelyn smile Well, all of the technology seen in this image works, so in that sense it is cooler, perhaps.
Starship Enterprise... Darn, Michael stole my comment. smile
Ayush Basu: You have more in common with Michael, in addition to interest in photography, Larry smile
It's good that to get so close to the front!
Ayush Basu: On this day, practically every part of the train was open to public, LC.
It seems to enter a game room not inside a train.
Ayush Basu: I agree with you, Claudio. But of course, it is not a game since people's lives are involved.
