This project is developed for the users to know the distance of the train in un guarded level crossings.
Usually in un guarded railway crossings, peoples cross the track without knowing whether train is coming or not. So many accidents happen. To avoid such a situation, this project will be very helpful.
It consists of a vibration sensor in the railway track. In each and every un guarded level crossings, there is a display and a siren arrangement.
When the train is coming over the track, a vibration is produced in the track. The sensor connected near the un guarded level crossing senses the vibration. The vibration will be increased when the train comes very near to the sensor and decreased when the train is away from the sensor.
The signal from the sensor is given to a microcontroller. The microcontroller converts the analogue signal to digital signal and according to the signal, it sends signal to the display and siren. Thus the user can easily know the distance of the train and will be alert.
