Abstract :

Train accident is very serious issue and it should be prevented. Detecting cracks and obstacles is vitally essential nearby and on the railway to ensure the smooth running of the trains. Indian railway is relying on visual inspection to monitor the railway. Our project is focused on detecting and warning the railways so that it can increase safety of the trains. The project uses two mediums to collect and monitordataabout the detecting cracks and obstacles nearby and on the railway. The first medium usedinthis project is the sensor based system by usingArduino as a controller at the prototype for storing and monitoring data about the distance between obstacles and theprototype. Another medium used is a display by using Processing Software todisplay the distance between obstacles and the device in the range between 0 – 40 cm. Ultrasonic sensors are used to scan the track and to detect the obstacles nearby and on the railway, which placed at the front, right and left sides.Arduino IDE is used to program Arduino Nano, which acts as the brain of the system. The system with the help of three ultrasonic sensors detects the distance between obstacles or crack and the device and send the data. The prototype managed to collect data and send it for processing and take preventive measures.
