Abstract

In this project we introduced the integration of ultrasonic and total station for railway track geometry surveying system. this project consist of GPS module, GSM modem, IR sensor, PIR sensor for application of communication purpose, crack detection and finding of human being present in the railway track. The GPS module and GSM modem help us to find and sending railway geometric parameter of crack detection to nearest railway station. In the present of days we are using the measurement of track distance by using high cost LVDT with less accuracy, but we use the less cost ultrasonic sensor for above process with high accuracy. We implement PIR sensor in this project to avoid manual checking of detection of presences of human being in recent trends of application. The importance of this project is applicable both day and night time detection purpose. Keywords— GPS module, GSM modem, IR sensor, PIR sensor, Ultrosonic distance meter.
