Automatic Obstacle Detection In Railway Network Using Embedded System
In railway department now days many accidents are occurring. The railway network is highly prone to accidents
compared to other means of transport. This work presented here is the automatic obstacle detection in railway network using
microcontroller on the level crossing and also the on the rails. This paper severs the train signaling. This work deals with the
two modules. The first one is obstacle detection within level crossings and the second is obstacle detection on the whole
network of rails. Comparing to the existing work it is a simple concept with low consumption of power using a
microcontroller. The obstacle sensor is used to sense the obstacle and microcontroller is used to take the decision and to
transmission and reception of the signals. This system is designed to use in all the level crossing and the whole network.
