Indian Railways have provisioned around 20 thousand fog pass devices during the foggy weather to ensure smooth rail operations. The fog pass is a GPS based navigation device that helps the loco pilot to navigate during dense fog conditions.

Railway Ministry said, it provides on-board real-time information to Loco Pilots regarding location of fixed landmarks such as Signal, Level Crossing gate and Permanent Speed Restrictions.

The Ministry said, during the foggy weather in the winter months, a large number of trains are affected especially in the northern parts of the country.

The fog pass device is suitable for train speeds up to 160 Kilometer per hour. Loco Pilot can carry the device easily with him as it is portable, compact in size and light in weight.
