Indian Railways is one of the world's largest railway networks in the world, transporting over 18 million passengers and more than 2 million tonnes of freight daily. Hence, the security of Indian railways becomes indispensible. The illegal removal of fish plates and collision on the same track leads to crash. The objective of our paper is to develop a radical system for continuous monitor of fish plates using power relays and immediate signalling on said fish platesremoval. In our proposed system we record the trains on the same track using the GPS module. GPS module interfaced with an ARDUINOboard reads the geographical coordinates of the train’s position so that the trains can be halted by applying emergency brakes and sending signals to both the train brake and train control rooms. Should such a case occur the train starts applying the brakes at a distance of 1Km from the incident location? It is expected that if this system is implemented widely, train collisions and accidents can be avoided and amount of losses could be negated.
