This week, we visited the main control room of BTS sky train company. The purpose of this trip was to study about the company’s working system, and observe staffs on usual working time. The information we got from this trip will be used as a guideline for designing the new control room in our final project of this class. We had a great opportunity to learn about train system from BTS staff, and we could ask any question which help us understand the system better.
The interesting thing that I learn from this company was how they avoided human errors by using automatic system. Human’s duty in this system is to make decisions, then, the automatic system will run automatically. However, when something unexpected happen such as an accident, human will take control the system especially human in the main control room.
