In the Indian economy the major share is contributed by the transport railway network. So, problems of crack detection in railway network when encountered may be dealt with a robust and cost effective solution, else, there may be a small decrease in the nation’s economy. Most of the accidents in the train are caused due to cracks in the railway tracks, which are hard to identify. And more time is required for this purpose; therefore we have implemented a crack detecting robot, which identifies the cracks and gives an alarm. In this paper we have tried to give an exact solution by the technical details and design aspects. The project consists of microcontroller and IR-photo diode assembly based crack detector robot.
