Abstract: The major problem faced by Indian railways is that the tracks are old and outdated. These old tracks cause many serious railway accidents. This has also resulted in speed restrictions. Accidents occur due to the errors and negligence of the employees. The railways are attacked during the time of disturbances and violence that arise in any part of the country. This project aims at providing a solution to all the above mentioned problems. Here, we are monitoring the track to get various data like cracks in the track. A device which contains a microcontroller detects the crack by using the light sensing module. The crack once detected, the location is detected and sent to the nearby station authority. Then all these information are sent to the station. From the station, an alert is made according to this information.
