Abstract: Indian Railroad is one of the biggest railroad systems on earth. Despite the fact that there is an enormous development in the Indian railroads, but some of the accidents occurs due to cracks which occur in the railway track. In this paper we are thinking about the serious issues that result in accidents. To overcome this major problem we have proposed another monitoring train that uses an ultrasonic sensor which is used to detect the crack in the railway track and used to send SMS and call via GSM and GPRS module with the help of Arduino Uno. During different seasons the track is expanded or contrasted due to which splits may happen. This testing train is used to detect the crack, when detects, the train stops and sends the signals to the nearest station. This intelligent system provides protection and online monitoring system.
