Abstract :

The project aim is designing railway track gap detection autonomous vehicle using Microcontroller, IR obstacle Sensors assembly system, which detects the gap along its path. The central component of the whole system is a microcontroller. The vehicle is powered with the help of Solar panel and Lead Acid battery assembly. The vehicle moves along the path of railway track and IR sensors mounted on the vehicle front end will inspect the track along the path. In our project “Automatic railway track gap detecting vehicle” beings with an introduction to railway track Inspection and it’s various application. The sensors are used to detect the crack in the railway track automatically and this signal is given to FM transmitter unit. FM receiver unit is fixed to the nearest railway station. The transmitted signal is received by the receiver unit, and gives the information to the station master by alarm with indication. This is a very efficient method of checking the cracks in the railway track and this is to be used in modern engineering industries. The manual efforts can be completely avoided by using this modern equipment.
