The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation is planning to install a Centralised Data Management System for the Delhi metro. The Data System will help process the data from the 34 Tunnel Boring Machines which will be used for the Phase III of the metro. The underground Phase III corridor will be 53km in length and will have 74 tunnels. The Data Management System will have a map viewer showing the positions of all the tunnel boring machines. It will also be able to monitor tunnelling-induced ground settlement and its influence on existing buildings. The system will help in data acquisition, visualisation, and reporting. It will serve as a tool for risk minimisation as it will provide immediate information on physical progress of the tunnels and correctness of the tunnel alignment, ground settlement as well as the status of buildings and structures along the underground alignment.
