MONO TRAIN PROTOTYPE-FULLY AUTOMATED RAILWAY LINE

Project Abstract / Summary : MONO TRAIN PROTOTYPE-FULLY AUTOMATED RAILWAY LINE
ABSTRACT:

Mono train are outfitted with a control system, which is programmed to make them following a specific path. Stations on such a path, timings of the train and distances between stations are all predefined. Messages and warnings are automatically generated and displayed to the passengers. This project presents the development process of a prototype for a driverless mono train implemented using an Atmega 328 microcontroller. This automated train starts from the source stations with required indications and signals. Before reaching the next station it displays the name of the forth coming station using 16X2 LCD display with an aleart sound to the passengers. The hardware circuits,which are built on printed circuit boards(PCB),are interfaced with actuators and sensors for automations purposes. The hardware is assembled in a toy-like prototype train. The Embedded C programing language is used for programing the microcontroller. This project work has got various scopes for future developments and expansions.
KEYWORDS:
Mono train;Automatic train operations;Full automations;Unmanned train operations.


Why did you choose to work on this project topic : To get exposure on Automation and control concepts. This model can be implemented in rural areas for rail transportation. In future such Mono Trains can be used in our country to meet the increasing traffic. As this train makes use of electricity, it causes minimum pollutions. In future implementation, it can be converted into hybrid train.

Project Highlights : This project focus on India's traffic need and environment. This focus on automated railway lines and to minimize the human error. If this project prototype is implemented in real time definitely our nation's railway quality will be improved. We are also planning extend our work on making automatic trains using bio fuels and hybrid mode insteadinstead of electricity.
