The Indian railway is the seventh largest railway system in the world. The maintenance of the huge transport system can be problematic and human error can cause a crisis. Economic level is mainly depends on increasing the capacity and level is mainly depends on increasing the capacity and level of transport. Till date there are cases of rail derailment due to track fracture.The main objective of this paper is to make a simple, effective and portable robot for the identification of major railway track damages using Raspberry pie and Internet of things. It also uses a GPS system to get the exact location of the damaged track. A robot will move across the railway track with IR sensors placed on it to detect flaw on the track. Its location will be traced and will be transmitted to the main server.
