Automated thermal scanners 

To make the process of screening seamless, the bullet thermal image screening cameras have been installed at various railway stations such as Secunderabad, Hyderabad and Asansol.

Automated Face Mask and Hand Sanitiser dispenser 

Indian Railways has installed an automated face mask and hand sanitiser dispenser at the Patna station. In case a passenger forgets to carry their own safety wear, they can always use this machine.

Vehicle-mounted sprayer being used for sanitisation 

As a part of the disinfecting process, parking areas, waiting halls, platforms, lifts and escalators are being regularly sanitised. Some stations are even using a vehicle-mounted sprayer for the same purpose.

Automated ticket checking and entry management system 

To prevent the spread of COVID-19 infection, ATMA (Automated ticket checking and managing access) system has been installed by Central Railways Nagpur Division. It is a contactless machine.
