France by 2023, will begin using high-speed Autonomous trains

The national French rail operator SNCF is going to 2023 to Commission an Autonomous high-speed TGV trains, FranceInfo the Agency reports citing official sources. Testing of so-called "train-the drones" is scheduled for 2019, according to the same publication.

Mathieu Chabanel, assistant Director of SNCF, in turn, in an interview FranceInfo compared the automated train with the autopilot systems used on commercial Airliners.

The Introduction of automated trains, in the opinion of the operator, the SNCF will increase the speed and the frequency of TGV trains. And in particular in the vicinity of Paris, where the TGV often overlap with numerous local and regional rail lines.
