Eradication of elephant mortality and injury due to railway accidents through automatic tracking and alert system

Abstract

This paper report explains the methodology to overcome the problem of elephant mortality and injuries due to railway accidents by the use of automatic tracking and alert system. Automatic calling and tracking system has been implemented by incorporating GSM and GPS technology that would be attached to the body of an elephant and would be continuously monitoring the position of the animal with respect to the GPS defined boundaries set up around the railway track. This system is flexible, cost effective and easy to implement and can be beneficial for monitoring elephant related complexities like railway accidents, train delays, destruction of vegetation and threat to human life in the occasion of straying of elephants out of their habitation zone.
