Railway transport system has proved to be a very sturdy and convenient mode of transport over the centuries. It still serves as the economic and most efficient means of mass transport in many countries. It is a widespread practice even today that most operations are manually carried out, leading to several dangerous accidents and mismanagement of the system. When it comes to the matter of scores of lives, error margin is of utmost importance to ensure an efficient and safe mode of travel. There is an utter need for a system that provides automation of the critical systems that play a pivotal role in the smooth functioning. The focus remains on certain key functions including locomotion, data logging for position, speed and health of he locomotive. This can increase the safety levels, while also reducing the time for relief in-case of unfortunate emergencies.
