Automatic Railway System Control Using PLC

Authors(2) :-Hitakshi Singh, Prof. Shikha Singh

Indian Railways safety is the main and crucial aspect of rail operation, as it is the most common & largest mode of commutation. This paper presents the different optimal solution for making the railway system automated , safe & environmental friendly. This proposed project provides three features ,automatic gate control through which unmanned railway gates is achieved replacing the manual work, automatic energy saving at station which will save upto 60-70% of the electricity, and obstacle detection which will help to detect an obstacle on the path while the train is running. The proposed project is automated by automation through PLC and visualized by SCADA.
