Design and Development of an Automatic Level Crossing Monitoring System Using Wireless Sensor Network in West Central Railway Zone

Indian railway is the largest rail network of Asia. There were 21,792 unmanned and 16,549 manned level crossings on Indian Railway System. At present, 6446 manned level crossings are interlocked and 14502 are provided with telephones. For reducing the rate of accidents due to level crossing a wireless sensor network is developed which monitor these manned and unmanned level crossing and automatic operate the gate with horn.
