This paper is proposed to prevent train accidents (due to un-alertness of engine drivers) by designing engines with a new emergency braking system— Modern VCD (Vigilance Control Device), a microcontroller based safety device which will enhance passenger’s safety by cyclically generating warnings and by automatically stopping the train if the driver is incapacitated or dead or fast asleep. This paper also informs the position of the loco crew to the higher authorities and tracks the position of the train where it is stopped by using Global System for Mobile communication (GSM) and Global Positioning System (GPS) technologies. If the driver does not perform a regular task such as accelerating or braking for a stipulated period of time a message will be send to the signal inspector through GSM. After the train is stopped automatically, its position is tracked by GPS and a message will be send to the signal inspector.
