The metro train is designed for unmanned operation conforming to GoA4, the highest level of automatic train operation.

CRRC says all the tasks are completed by the train itself and do not require human involvement. For example, the system will wake up the train in the morning, carry out a self-check, exit the depot and enter passenger service. At the end of the day, the train will return to the depot and pass through the train washer automatically.

The train features a panel imbedded in a window which can be used to provide passenger information or display advertising.
