EN Railway transportation is a backbone of any country for transporting people and cargo. At present Indian railway is the largest network in Asia. So that safety is always big concern. Here in this article low cost railway track surveillance and monitoring system is proposed which will identify drastic and minor changes into the railway track. It consist a high-resolution CMOS camera mounted on robot. It is designed like: it can easily roll on railway track. In case of any obstacle or train coming on track, robot folds itself and provides a path to pass the train. It is controlled by wireless control system, which can be operated from remote location or station. For accurate results, a live video streaming is done to the remote station for future references and comparison of results. On the assembly of robot, a GPS (Global Positioning System) is mounted to know the location of robot on the rail track. An obstacle detector sensor is also mounted on the front of the robot to detect any coming obstacle. In this article ultrasonic method (Non-Destructive Method) is also explained to detects presence of cracks on rail track in real time. Overall, power utilization of this system will be very low by operating this system by solar power. Signal processing and wireless communication system is used as technology, which cuts off the overall cost. By implementing this surveillance system, we can improve the safety parameters of Indian railway by minimizing the errors and reducing the time and cost.
