Progress on Unmanned Crossing System

Thanks for all your inputs on How to Minimize Accidents at Unmanned Crossing.

We are pleased to share that Indian Railway has developed a vandal-proof warning system for unmanned level crossings which is working satisfactorily for the last three months on Coimbatore-Metupallayam section.

Research Designs and Standards Organisation (RDSO), railways' research wing, which has finalised the specifications of the system, has recommended to all zonal railways to initiate steps for installation of the warning system in their respective areas as a step towards prevention of accidents.

The system consists of two sensor modules and a control module in which train movements are detected and siren and blinker alerts are produced when the train is within one km of the level crossing. Sensor modules are located within one km of level crossing to detect train movement on track.

The system has been developed with a Mumbai-based vendor and RDSO will call for an expression of interest from other vendors for the production of more such systems.

If you have additional inputs on the subject, please share. more

Where there is a need fo unmanned system, there is also the need of more men at some locations. At plateforms, when train comes, people fight for climbing onto the train. So there should be 10-20 cops on every plateform so that they can help people to climb on to the train, force people to get to train in case of over crowded, and look for the people who misbehave or fight with other passengers who want to climb so that they can get onto the train before others do. more

Chemical tea: Train passengers sip slow Poison
This is an "Eye Opener" indeed. Always thought tea is safe as the water is boiled, but the 'poison' is in the milk! These Tea Sellers Don't Use Milk But Fevicryl to Make Tea. Fevicryl" is a brand of Acrylic colors used for painting. Please watch the video by copy paste the link <>;; in Google Search Bar.
For all those who relish road-side kadak chais this might come as a shock…but whatever you are sipping might be slowly poisoning you. Many tea sellers, especially the ones we find on railways stations do not use Milk to prepare tea, rather they use a chemical called Fevicryl. This shocker of
a fact was confessed by one of their very own. more  
In every unmanned Railway level crossings continuous speedbreakers and red painted sign boards for 100 yards on either side of the road besides all automatic signals to avoid accidents in all unmanned levelcrossings.. more  
it should be installed at 20 to 30 different location / division as a trial basis and as per experience modification should be made in the product. more  
Some 10 years back a Bangalore based company has developed the same Level crossing protection device and was even installed with the approval of Research and Design organization of Railways in Bangalore region. It is not correct to say this has been developed very recently or for the first time. The lapse of 10 years precious time and the life of many could have been saved had the system already developed been perfected and put into use. more
