Especially popular with visitors enjoyed demonstrated in the photo, and automatic driving system parameters registration locomotives — like aircraft autopilot, essentially transforming driver in the operator’s computer equipment. This system allows to improve safety, to achieve strict compliance with the timetable and provide energy savings of 5-7 percent. In the event of a sudden change in the situation the system instantly provides several management programs, of which the engineer can only choose the best. In addition, the "autopilot" functions as a registrar — it can be used to check the correctness of operator actions and good faith performance of his official duties — for example, find out whether he gave the horn when approaching a crossing. This system is equipped with almost five thousand units of locomotives used in freight and passenger transport.
