Automatic railway gate control and track changer using anticollision technique
Railway safety is a crucial aspect of rail operation the world over. Malfunctions resulting in accidents usually get wide media coverage even when the railway is not at fault and give to rail transport, among the uninformed public, an undeserved image of inefficiency often fueling calls for immediate reforms.
Collisions are the most dreaded accidents. It is very difficult to stop such collisions because of speed of moving trains, which need a lead distance to stop. Collisions happen due to human errors and/or faulty equipment.
Railways being the cheapest mode of transportation are preferred over all the other means. When we go through the daily newspapers we come across many railway accidents occurring at unmanned railway crossings. This is mainly due to the carelessness in manual operations or lack of workers. We, in this project have come up with a solution for the same.
