A Railway Locomotive Monitoring System Using IoT

Authors(4) :-Ashwini G V, Manasa M, Ramya K, Ashoka S

The explosively growing demand of internet of things (IoT) has rendered broad scale advancements in the fields across sensors, radio access, network, and hardware/software platforms for mass-market applications. A cost-effective IoT solution consisting of device platform, gateway, IoT network and platform server for smart railway infrastructure. The IoT solution applied for the smart railway application makes it easy to grasp the condition information distributed over a wide railway area. One of the important issues for railway operators is maintenance of their railway systems. The railway system consists of various entities including train vehicles, tracks, facilities (i.e. tunnels and bridges), catenary and electrical devices in trackside. It is essential for the railway operators to guarantee that every entity of the railway system operates in good condition. Any operational faults are supposed to be strictly prevented, because an unexpected fault may threat the safety of massive passengers. The proposed railway locomotive monitoring systems as the facilities like estimation of the fuel consumption & distance covered by train, to detect unwanted objects on tracks & any cracking in the tracks and also provide health services to the passengers.
