Train Collision Avoidance and Reduction of Speed Using RFID and ZIGBEE
Rail network being the second largest in our nation, India and so train collision is one of the major concerns. More than 85 train accidents happened from 1980 to 2011 in India. In last two years itself more than 27 train accidents happened in India. To avoid this, we need reliable train collision avoidance system which is economical. This paper presents the development of a system to avoid train collision and derailment by reduction of speed using RFID (Radio frequency identification) and ZigBee. Track monitoring mechanism uses microcontroller and provides the required features to the system.
