networks are one of the most important aspect for economic development of a
Accidents in railways leads to loss of lives and financial loss for the
government. Modern railway transport
systems are designed under the principles of safety and reliability, and the
development of high-speed railway lines is based on such premises. This
projects are designed based on railway safety. Here we propose a system
which consisting of ultrasonic sensor, camera, GPS, and GSM.
This project describes a camera with MATLAB software which is used in
integrating visuals and programs. This also gives a graphical user interface
for this model. This helps us to detect an object on the track , thus giving us the image of
the hindrance on the track.GPS are used here to get the location and GSM are used
here as a communication channel to transmit GPS coordinates, like geography
Railway transportation is known as the
backbone of Indian economy. Safety on railway networks has to be maintained for
the security of the people is guaranteed. Several monitoring system such
as stereo visions, thermal scanners, and vision metric etc., are used in
monitoring platforms. But they could not achieve the goal by detecting the
obstacle on the tracks.
structure and performance of transportation network reflects the ease of
travelling and transferring goods among the different parts of a country thus affecting trade and other
aspects of country’s economy.
to the statistics, signal system failures, track failures, vehicle breakdown
are some of the causes of train accidents. Obstacle on the train tracks is the
most important reason. The obstacle may be any vehicle, animals and humans
crossing the track and also in some cases any cracks on the rails.
15,000 lives are lost rail accidents. The unmanned crossings are responsible
for maximum number of train accidents
In all transport systems safety and reliability are
highly considered, particularly in railways. In Railway System all the control
are done through man power. In this present condition we have faced the
following problems wastage of time,
wastage of energy and difficulty for a manual operator. Because of the
constant need to improve rail safety, the existence of the objects on tracks
are considered, particularly the grade crossings.
system needs human being to detect the obstacles.
take time to detect the obstacle.
proposed method we develop a safety system for Indian railway and human beings.The
system consist of microcontroller which is interfaced with GPS module, GSM
modem, Buzzer, Ultrasonic Sensor, and LCD display.The ultrasonic sensor senses
the obstacle in front of the train and send information to the centralized
server using UART and the display unit of the train. The camera along with the
MATLAB capture the detected obstacle image in front of the train and check what
type of obstacles are detected and send the information of the detected
obstacle image to the centralized server using UART. If any obstacles are
detected in front of the train the GPS are used here to find the location of
the obstacles detected train information, and GSM are used to send the location
of the obstacle detected location information to the nearby railway station by
Here MATLAB are used to check what type of obstacle are detected. Buzzer are also used here to
produce alarm if any obstacles are detected infront of the train.

the proposed system helps in preventing accidents due to humans, vehicles and
vehicles crossing the tracks by using simple mechanism of obstacle detection.
