Question
Dear Prof Steve

Closed-circuit television camera - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Locomotive - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

1. Do you feel the CCTC System is feasible to implement in Locomotives ?. The Display control room for monitoring will be in the Motorman's cabin. CCTC Cameras will be installed in all or specific compartments of the Locomotive.

2. Do you feel security will enhance by implementing CCTC Systems in Locomotives ?.


Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

Answer
Hello Prashant,

1. Do you feel the CCTC System is feasible to implement in Locomotives ?.
If it isn't already provided, yes of course it could be done.

2. Do you feel security will enhance by implementing CCTC Systems in Locomotives ?.
Compared to how it is now I assume. The problem is, I don't know anything about how it is done now. Does the motorman have responsibility for monitoring security in other areas? I would rather he concentrate on driving.

I hope this helps,
Steve

Expertise

I would be delighted to help with questions up through the first year of college Physics. Particularly Electricity, Electronics and Newtonian Mechanics (motion, acceleration etc.). I decline questions on relativity and Atomic Physics. I also could discuss the Space Shuttle and space flight in general.

Experience

I have a BS in Physics and an MS in Electrical Engineering. I am retired now. My professional career was in Electrical Engineering with considerable time spent working with accelerometers, gyroscopes and flight dynamics (Physics related topics) while working on the Space Shuttle. I gave formal classroom lessons to technical co-workers periodically over a several year period.
