With accidents at level crossings on the rise, the focus is on ensuring an efficient level crossing system.Engineering students Dominic, N. Vinod Kumar, Rahul R.Sekhar, S. Sijil, and Rahul Chandran believe that limitations of the level crossing system can be solved with their project —stationmaster controlled railway level crossing system.It ensures that level crossings are closed for traffic when there is impending rail movement.This automatic signal-controlled system comprises a monitoring system under the control of the stationmaster, controlling system consisting of stepper motor, and a detection system installed on the tracks.The systems are suitably interfaced with a microcontroller, which is the heart of the system.When the stationmaster remotely activates the level cross gates through the system containing the microcontroller, the gates open automatically once the train moves past the gates.At present more than half of the level crossings are unmanned, which invite accidents. This system can make both unmanned and manned...
level crossings automatic and eliminate accidents, Rahul R.Sekhar said.The person operating the system can view the open/ close status of the level crossing at any given time. The project provides an automatic signal-controlled level crossing system that does not use any sensor and is compatible with wireless communication networks.The students say the system can be maintained at a low cost and multiple signals along the tracks can be controlled with a panel at the stationmaster's office with digitised telephone and display unit. “The project can be taken to the next level by introducing an anti-collision system that can prevent head-on or rear-end collision, thereby reducing the number of accidents,” says Nikhil.

    @all: There are some changes coming to the PNR Forum. 1. All PNRs will be anonymized, i.e. you won't see who posted the PNRs or search PNRs by Traveller. This is to better protect the confidentiality of travelling members and their travel plans. However, members will still be able to search their OWN...
