Railway is the most economical mode for transport in the India. Signaling in the railways plays a vital role to direct the trains in a right way at a right speed towards the destination. A single miscommunication in the signaling may lead to catastrophe in railways. This design tries an approach to improve the mode of communication (signaling) using PIC microcontroller and to avoid the train collision using power line carrier communication and semaphore signaling. The location of the train is detected at various parts of same track and it transfers through GSM technology to the controller. When two trains travel in same track the current location of the trains is sent to the control station. The warning signals and controlling signals to the train can also be transferred to the loco pilot using Power Line Carrier Communication (PLCC) providing proper signal alerts to the pilots can guide the pilots to avoid train collision.
