ISRO & Railways Partner Again to Improve Safety

After their earlier alliance in 2015, ISRO and Indian Railways have once again partnered. This time the target is to improve safety at unmanned railway crossings. A satellite-based system is being setup on five trains plying on different routes as a pilot project. Here, an IC-based system capable of communicating with ISRO’s satellites is being put on train engines. Unmanned crossings will have hooters, which will sound an alarm the moment they detect a train nearing the crossing to warn approaching vehicles.
