Abstract
As automation increases in train services, this project resulted in making a driver-less train. The main purpose was to see how security can be increased. By using sensors, today’s technologies and rebuild the stations with walls on the platforms, the safety can increase for the better. This project designs a railway system consisting of a train, boom barriers and a station. The mechanical parts were made from scratch to get the system to work beneficially. The use of Arduino as a micro controller where electrical components could be programmed, became the control of all subsystems. Ultrasonic- and IR-sensors were used to detect if obstructions were located on th...
