Considering the current state of turmoil in the Indian railways, the controversy surrounding the use or rather the ineffective use of technology in the railways, there is an aggravating need for some improvement in technology and at a low cost. One quick-fix solution to this is the indigenously developed, technologically sound and readily available ‘Anti-collision Device’. But the drawback of that technology is its high cost of installation. This drawback is overcome by the development of an ‘On Panel Signalling System in trains with Auxiliary Warning System (AWS)’. The main aim of this project is to develop a panel which can be mounted on the train’s dashboard so that the motorman has the present status of the nearest signal at his disposal. If the motorman still overlooks the signal, the train will be brought to a halt .This is achieved using a circuit made up of micro-controllers, radiofrequency & infrared frequency transmitters and receivers and RF encoder and decoder.
