Operation and passenger conditions can be immediately checked at Safety Control Room of each station and at Operation Control Center
Train Video Transmission System
Wireless Video Transmission System allows operators to monitor platform conditions and situations through the monitor in the operating room as they enter/exit the platform. This system can be disclosed wave or wireless type, but Line 9 has adopted the wireless type.
Automated Broadcasting System
Automatically broadcasts information about incoming train, routes, arrivals, and operations to passengers in platforms and lounges.
