Abstract
An improvising system for Indian Railways that can be utilized to account for the problems with the level crossing gates operated manually by a gate keeper. Over 43.6% of railway accidents were held at level crossings in our country. No fruitful steps have been taken so far. In the proposed system the arrival or departure of the train near level crossing determines the opening or closing of the level crossing gate automatically with the help of IR sensor and warning signal (i.e. Buzzer sound) at level crossings. But there may be a chance that during this automation process, a vehicle may be locked between the crossing gates. At this situation, the obstacle between the crossing gates could be detected with the help of ultrasonic sensor and it will be intimated to the train through GSM module. Thus, the man power could be reduced and at the same time accidents at level crossings can be avoided into maximum extent.

Key-Words / Index Term
PIC Microcontroller, Ultrasonic sensor, IR sensor.
