There are many railway crossings which are unmanned due to lack of manpower, needed to fulfill the demands. Hence, many accidents occur at such crossings, since there is no one to take care of the functioning of the railway gate when a train approaches the crossing.The objective of this paper is to manage the control system of railway gate using the microcontroller. The proposed model has been designed using 8052 microcontroller to avoid railway accidents occurring at unattended railway gates…

Automatic Railway Gate Control using 89C51
TLDR
An automatic gate operations at the train barrier is achieved using IR sensors, which uses IR (infrared sensor) for detecting the coming as well as going of train.
Sensor based automatic control of railway gates
The present work attempts to automate the opening and closing of gates at a railway level crossing. In general, level crossing gates are operated manually by a gate keeper. The gate keeper receives

Intelligent Train Engine and Running System
TLDR
An attempt to improve the currently running railway system by automation of the rail engine and the unmanned railway crossing gates by designing a digital control circuit and a driving circuit using AT89C51 Microprocessors and infrared sensors.
An Expert System-Based Automation in Indian Traction System for a One Way Single Platform Station by Introducing PLC
TLDR
Control over various controlling domains, including Railway crossing gate are as follows: Track signal, crossing level signal, alarm notification, and platform edge fence, and the proper sequencing needs to be operated via a 128 I/O module with 2 KB memory size small PLC kit.
Design and Construction 0f An Automatic Railway Gate System
In modern technology is largely depends on automation and control system. Automation and control system refers the use of various control systems for operating equipment such as machinery, processes
Intelligent Railway Crossing Gate Control with High Speed Anti-Collision Alerting System
TLDR
The paper considers the vulnerable areas of accident and includes features like anti-collision and automatic gate control, accident detection and power saving in tunnel, which are mainly modeled using Microcontroller AT89s52.
Railway gate system: Railway gate status detection
TLDR
This paper proposes a method of displaying the status of the gate, as it is at that time, on the cloud, thereby reducing the amount of traffic near the gates and the number of potential accidents that can occur.
Automation and Safety Measurements At Railroad Intersection using Iot
TLDR
The target of this undertaking is to robotize railroad passages without individuals and to check rail course scenes with the assistance of camera and Raspberry pie.
Automatic Railway System
TLDR
This automatic railway system reduces the waiting time of road passengers at the railway crossings since it will identify the arrival of the train and there by closing the gate when needed.
