Real Time GPS for Railway Automation System

Authors(2) :-Rahul Shankar Dhote, Dinesh Vitthalrao Rojatkar

The concept of the paper idea is to automate the railways system. We are using the idea of Global Position system(GPS) for tracking every trains and a proposed system by which every trains are personally monitored and passing necessary messages to the individual trains .The train with the GPS Module and GSM module on board. This would enable passenger can simply query the location of a train via SMS from his mobile phone but will also enable us to provide real time train tracking system. It is developed with a goal to reduce the waiting time of the passenger. The train unit will response to the user mobile with the GPS coordinates of the present location of trains. There is a base station where the train movement will be displayed on a screen. The motivation for the paper came from due to the lack of control over railways in India as we hardly get to know the exact position of the train while standing at the station. The method of Metro implements modern techniques to control the railways motivate us to design a system for the complete railway system.
