Sensors Aided Railway Management System : Towards Automation

Authors(2) :-Praful Baburao Meshram, Dinesh Vitthalrao Rojatkar

In the rapidly growing country like ours, accidents in the unmanned level crossings are increasing day by day. No beneficial steps have been taken so far in these areas. The present work deals with automate the opening and closing of gates at a level crossing replacing the gates operated by the gatekeepers. It deals with two different things, First thing is reduction of time for which the gate is being kept closed and second thing, to provide safety to the road users by reducing the accidents. By employing the automatic gate control at the level crossing the arrival of the train is detected with the help of sensors placed near to the railway gate. Hence, the time for which it is closed is less as compared to the manually operated gates. Automatic gate control is highly micro-controller based arrangements, designed for use in almost all the unmanned level crossing in the train. Thus, automation of the railway gate operations at the level cross is achieved using sensors.
