# Intelligent Train Engines

Thursday, November 20th, 2008

We know that the railway network of India is the biggest in south Asia and perhaps the most complicated in all over the world. There are so many different types of trains local, fast, super fast, passenger, goods…. etc. and their so many multiple routs. Although the time table is perfect it is not at all possible to maintain it. And that’s why the train accidents are becoming more and more usual. So why not we add a kind of intelligence to the train engines itself so that it tries to avoid accidents.

The idea is whenever any engine observes a red signal on its track it will start decreasing its speed gradually and stops automatically at some distance from the signal pole. After then when it gets green signal the driver can manually start the train and go on. In the mean time when train has not stopped yet and a red signal becomes green then it crosses the signal pole with low speed and then driver can slowly increase the speed.

So now before the driver observes the red signal the engine itself observes it and automatically starts decreasing speed and then stops. The driver can feel relax in driving because he doesn’t have to take care about red signal. Even if he forgets to take any action on red signal then also we can avoid accidents by the implementation of this idea.

General description:

What we have to do is we have to attach a transmitter with signal pole which will start transmitting signals only when the red light is on. If there is green light no transmission. The engine has a receiver which catches these transmitted signals and takes desire actions.

Both the transmitter and receiver are of RF type with minimum range of 2 Km. so that train can get enough time to decrease its speed and stop before the signal pole with minimum swapping distance of 100-200 mt.

Here in our project we have used IR transmitter and receiver instead of RF for demo purpose. But same idea can be easily implemented with RF also with a little more cost.

Lets first discuss the demonstration model.

Demonstration Model:

The train engine runs on 24V DC motor so that we can easily vary its speed by varying applied voltage. The switching voltage is applied in step of 18 V, 15 V, 12 V and 9 V (min speed). The 230 VAC is step-down to 24 VAC by 12-0-12, 2 Ampere step down transformer. As shown in figure this 24 VAC line runs parallel with track at the top of the train. Movable tapping are taken from this line and fed to the internal circuit of engine. These tapping slides as the train runs on the track and give continuous supply to circuit. The IR sensor is placed at the top of the engine, senses the signals transmitted by IR transmitter attached to signal pole. Train track is straight and 20 ft long. Signal pole is placed at the end of track and train starts from farther end.

i am doing my final year project on intelligent train engine,so please send me tha complete details and clear diagrams pls pls…

thanku sir.

7. saurabh shukla says:

sir
tell me more about intelligent train engines and specially receiver part i have some difficulty on there to fix it.tell me also sir, what are the factor depending on stopping train engines and receiver part is fixed on engine,what distance required for fix pole. pls…

8. Sumeet says:

SIR I AM WORKING ON THIS PROJECT. WOULD YOU PLEASE SEND DETAILS OF THIS PROJECT.MOREOVER I WANT TO KNOW THE SPECIFICATION OF THE RELAY BEING. I ALSO WANT TO KNOW IS IT POSSIBLE TO GET 24 V DC MOTOR. THE VALUES SHOWN FOR THE COMPONENTS(specially resistors in transmitter) ARE BLURD. SIR KINDLY HELP US. HOPING FOR THE SAME

9. niraj says:

i want to make this project please send me total real detail..
otherwise i want to bye this project please send me information.

10. tejal says:

a) What are the header files which are needed while programming in the Microcontroller What is the min distance from which IR Sensors start detecting the IR signal from Transmitter?
I want to keep the track range only till max 5 feet nothing more than that, so what changes in this project I need to adapt?
b) What is the min distance from which IR Sensors start detecting the IR signal from Transmitter?
I want to keep the track range only till max 5 feet nothing more than that, so what changes in this project I need to adapt?What are the header files which are needed while programming in the Microcontroller ?
c) IR sensors detect only White or Black objects or signals , So how IR sensors on the receiver detect Red signals sent by IR LED from transmitter?
d)What are the header files which are needed while programming in the Microcontroller ? Approx how much this complete project might cost ?
e) Approx how much this complete project might cost ? What e the challenges you faced while doing this project?
I am waiting for your response. I would be thankful to you if you guide me by solving my problems……… sir can u plz mial me all ur work on this, so that i can make little more modifications if possible…….. plz help me sir……
