Unformatted text preview: Automatic Railway gate operation
The objective of this paper is to provide an automatic railway gate at a level
crossing replacing the gates operated by the gatekeeper. It deals with two things. Firstly,
it deals with the reduction of time for which the gate is being kept closed. And secondly,
to provide safety to the road users by reducing the accidents
By the presently existing system once the train leaves the station, the
stationmaster informs the gatekeeper about the arrival of the train through the telephone.
Once the gatekeeper receives the information, he closes the gate depending on the timing
at which the train arrives. Hence, if the train is late due to certain reasons, then gate
remain closed for a long time causing traffic near the gates.
By employing the automatic railway gate control at the level crossing the arrival
of the train is detected by the sensor placed near to the gate. Hence, the time for which it
is closed is less compared to the manually operated gates and also reduces the human
labor. This type of gates can be employed in an unmanned level crossing where the
chances of accidents are higher and reliable operation is required. Since, the operation is
automatic; error due to manual operation is prevented.
Automatic railway gate control is highly economical microcontroller based
arrangement, designed for use in almost all the unmanned level crossings in the country. www.mycollegeproject.com Ph: +91 9490219339, 040-23731030 Ameerpet: A-8, 2nd floor, Eureka court, beside Image hospital, Ameerpet, HYDERABAD – 73.
