Collision Avoidance of Trains by Creating Mutual Communication Using Embedded System
Railway is an Eco-Friendly and Popular mode of Transport in most major cities of the World. One of the most widely used and comfortable nodes of transportation system is train. As the railway network is considered to be the safest and easiest network. More than 10 billions of people and 1050 millions of freight travel by train annually. Railway Transport is indispensable in modern day life, both for business and private users. Nowadays, rail networks across the world are getting busier with trains travelling at higher speeds and carrying more passengers and heavier axle loads than ever before. The combination of these factors has put considerable pressure on the existing infrastructure, leading to increased demands in inspection and maintenance of rail assets. But nowadays, it is not that much safer as the lot of accidents occur due to improper communication among the network , wrong signalling , worst weather condition, immediate route change. The train driver doesnât get proper information on time and before time so that the hazardous condition can occur. While maritime and air transport are already benefiting from collision avoidance application based on infrastructure less communications. We propose this system to avoid train collision by using zigbee protocol, in this system provide communication between trains to avoid same track collisions, by transmitting every train travel on track id to other trains, if two trains come into same track alert train driver and stop train as a distance.
