Abstract

A railway gate is crucial for security reasons. If the system has a flaw, it will endanger one or more lives. The goal of this project is to install an automatic railway gate at a level crossing to replace the gatekeeper-operated gates. It covers two topics. First, it deals with reducing the amount of time the gate is kept closed, and second, it aims to give road users safety by lowering the number of accidents. In the current arrangement, once the train has departed the station, the stationmaster telephones the gatekeeper to let them know the train has arrived. The gatekeeper closes the gate based on the time the train arrives after receiving the information. As a result, if the train is delayed for a particular reason, the gate will remain closed for a long time, creating traffic around the gates. By using the automatic railway gate control at the level crossing, the sensor installed close to the gate detects the arrival of the train. As a result, it closes for a shorter time than manually operated gates, which also decreases the need for human effort. This type of gate 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.
