There are five Grades of Automation (GoA) of trains) GoA0 means no automation at all while GoA4 means fully automatic. GoA4 means Unattended Train operation (UTO). In this case starting and stopping, operation of doors and handling of emergencies are all fully automated without any on-train staff. All stations must have platform screen doors.
