Abstract

Railway is the lifeline of India. Presently in the real time world, commuters are using different types of transport facilities such as flights, trains, buses, cars etc. But majority of the public in our country prefer traveling in trains. The reason may be the comforts available for long journeys and relatively lesser travelling charges. Though the railways has implemented many safety standards for the safe journey, still one can witness some rail accidents that leads to the loss of many precious lives and loss of property. The major causes for accidents in rail road railings are mainly due to unmanned railway gate, mis-signaling due to fog and mist, and manually controlled railway track. This project is to provide an efficient alternative to many conventional techniques used by the railways in order to decrease accident occurrence incorporating manual operations.
