Drivers via the TCMS (Train Control and Monitoring System) interface at each 2 end of the trains; In the first part of the train, it is possible to monitor all sub-systems such as doors, drive system, brake system, tension force, driving mode, speed information.
Thus, drivers can easily diagnose all abnormalities in the system, all events and all failures under operation.
With the TCMS smart tracking system, it is possible to determine a possible serious problem in advance and to take the train out of service as soon as possible and to prevent the suffering of the traveling passenger.

Other informations:

Kadıköy - Smoke and passenger evacuation scenarios have been prepared for all possible negative situations that may occur in Kartal Metro and tested by making simulations about these scenarios. With a total of 831 cameras at the stations, the system is constantly monitored and controlled.
The signaling of the line and the storage area has a continuous communication-based Motion Block system. The signaling system is Thales CBTC system and the trains are able to operate without driver. Since trains are equipped with a mechanic's cab, and there is no operating mode without a driver, there are no trains on the trains. However, in cases where the passenger is not present (empty train is sent to the parking zone or warehouse area or from the warehouse and parking area to any part of the main line), it is possible to use completely without driver.
All the equipment used in the subway are selected from materials that are highly resistant to heat and do not emit toxic gases. There is a reliable smoke control and evacuation system, which is fully compliant with NFPA standards, which is fully proven to be safe for people to evacuate in case of fire.
Kadıköy - In Kartal Metro, the energy supply of the entire system is made from 3 different points. OG ring is a 34,5 kV system. If all three feed points are disabled, the generators at 2 different ends can be activated and all the trains in the tunnel can be delivered to the nearest station one by one and evacuate the passengers. While the generators are in operation, the supply of essential loads at the station continues. Essential loads must be disabled for this. In case the energy supply is cut and generators fail and fail, the lighting system and electronic control systems can be fed for 3 hours via uninterrupted power supplies.
