Crack in Railway Track Detection and Alerting
Keywords:Raspberry Pi Pico, IR Sensor, ESP8266, L296D IC, GPS Module
The Indian Railways is one of the leading public transport systems all over the world with route length over 68,103 KM. However, regardingfacilities, services and safety of people is not yet reached the global standards. Other factors include gaps in between tracks, irregular checks in detecting faults and improper maintenance. The past incidentswhich took place show that the accidents taking place are due to improper maintenance of tracks. But manual checks are still the method used onrailways which are time consuming. The proposed system was designed to overcome the above problems by developing a preprogrammed railway track detection system which is an effective method implemented using Raspberry Pi Pico as a Processor. The IR sensors were used in detecting gaps between railway track and an alert message is sent through Telegram Application along with locality of the fault so the railway department can take necessary steps to avoid accidents and many lives of people.
