The fire incidences in trains are among the most serious disasters to human lives and the property of Railways. Thus prevention of train fire has become a serious concern for Railways. There are many cases of fire consequences like damages to human lives and property in which many of them are of avoidable nature which can be eliminated by proper attention and awareness. Therefore, it becomes imperative that all required steps are taken to prevent and control fires has made efforts in this direction by incorporating information on probable causes, preventive measures during manufacturing and maintenance of Railway coaches.
This project is designed to demonstrate advance features which can be implemented in trains for Passenger safety and security. The purpose of our developed system is to minimize the effect of fire accident and also alerting the far-off property-proprietor accurately through sending Short Message (SMS) with live location by means of GSM (Global system for mobile) network and GPS (Global Positioning System). The prototype train model is equipped with few sensors. At critical condition or in case of emergency, Voice module will playback voice messages for Passengers alert. We will have proper controlling action to blow off fire. We can thus track live location from where the fire is being occurring.
