The railway crossing accidents are increasing day by day from past few years due to carelessness in manual operations at railway level crossing. The aim of our project is to automate various operations related to opening and closing of railway gates in order to minimize the accidents at unmanned railway gates. Automatic railway gate at a level crossing replaces the gates operated by gatekeepers. It deals with two things, firstly, it deals with the reduction of time for which the gate is being kept closed and secondly, to provide safety to the roads users by reducing the accidents. By employing the automatic railway gate control at the level crossing the arrival of the train is detected by the RF transmitter and signal will be received at receiver station. Hence, the time for which it is closed is less compared to the manually operated gates. The operation is automatic. Automatic railway gate control is highly microcontroller based arrangements. The proposed system overcomes the traditional Railway Level Crossing System without intervention of human which can be done automatically.
