The Railroad related accidents are more dangerous than other transportation accidents in terms of injurity and death rate etc. Therefore more efforts are necessary for improving safety and security. There are many railways crossing which are unmanned due to lack of manpower needed to fulfill the demand signal is sent to the control room and the gate is closed and stays closed until the train crosses the gate and crossing side sensors. When Hence many accidents occur at such crossing since there is careless of the functioning of the railway gate when a train arrive the crossing (1). The main aim of this paper is to manage the control system of railway gate using microcontroller and verius types of sensors. The proposed model has been designed using x-bee sensor and microcontroller to avoid railway accidents occurring a unattended railway gates if implemented detection of train approaching the gate can be sensed by means of two sensors placed on either side of the gate. This work depends on the two sensors placed on either side of the gate. This work utilizes two powerful magnetic sensors is fixed at incoming and similarly the other magnetic sensor is fixed at outgoing side of the train direction. Sensors are fixed on both sides of the gate. We call the sensors along the train direction as foreside sensor and the other as after side sensor. When foreside sensor gets activated the sensed side sensor activated and the signal about the departure is sent to the microcontroller motor turns in opposite direction and gate opens and motor stops automatically (1).
