PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The main objective of this project is to design a railway track security system, which is used to detect the cracks on the railway track at any moment and to send that information to a nearby station by using GSM technology through SMS.

This system uses a microcontroller of the 8051 family and a rectified power supply. Here the GSM modem is connected to the microcontroller through a level shifter for sending the data. The railway track and GSM modem status are displayed on the LCD display, which is interfaced to the microcontroller.

This system is based on a prototype of a railway track, which is formed by a pair of wires connected with a detachable jumper, on each track, to the microcontroller – this is for demonstration purpose only. Removal of the detachable jumper creates a fault in the respective track; otherwise it is generally shorted by a jumper wire to simulate healthy track condition.

Whenever any user removes the detachable jumper from the track, it creates a fault in the respective track, and the information pertaining to the fault is sent to the microcontroller through transistor logic. The microcontroller compares this data with the predefined data and if it finds the data matching, then, it sends the corresponding information via SMS to the nearby station through a GSM modem.
