A novel method for secure transportation of railway systems has been proposed in this project. In existing methods, most of the methods are manual resulting in a lot of human errors. This project proposes a system which can be controlled automatically without any outside help. This project has a model concerning two train sections and a gate section. The railway sections are used to show the movement of trains and a gate section is used to show the happenings in the railway crossings. The scope of this project is to monitor the train sections to prevent collisions between two trains or between humans and trains and to avoid accidents in the railway crossings. Also an additional approach towards effective power utilization has been discussed. Five topics are discussed in this project : 1) Detection of obstacles in front of the train; 2) Detection of cracks and movements in the tracks; 3) Detection of human presence inside the train and controlling the electrical devices accordingly 4) Updating the location of train and sharing it with other trains automatically 5) Controlling the gate section during railway crossing. This project can be used to avoid accidents in the railway tracks.
