  Accident Prevention Technique Based on Vital Parameters A Survey

In the recent years, number of accidents due to trains is more and losses are also heavy. Accidents are not only caused by poor technical conditions of vehicles, but also by tired, indisposed, or bad state-of-minded drivers. The human factors can be managed by controlling, recording and monitoring of the most important vital parameters of the driver. The paper proposed a real-time Improved Driver Monitoring System which is developed to ensure safe operations of trains, by monitoring eye-blink rate and recording loco-pilot’s vital parameter. Intelligent train tracking and management system is used to improve the existing railway transportation service. The system helps in avoiding the head-on collision in an efficient way by notifying the status of the two trains on the same track when they are separated by few kilometers away to reduce the human death ratio by accidents.

Improved Driver Monitoring


Vital parameters

Head-on collision

Intelligent train tracking

In order to ensure safe operation of trains, we put forward a wireless network access framework for safety train operation based on the driver’s vital parameters in noisy environment. The scope of the proposed work is to develop a system which constantly monitors the health status of a person and if any abnormalities are found, it is immediately transferred to the authentication server. The system will be able to generate alert message if any abnormality is detected to avoid head-on collision. The system will establish a management structure based on performance evaluation and monitoring process. The work can be extended to control the traffic congestion while transmission of the signals and also security measures can be added for better and secured transmission. The goal of the work is to design a system that helps in reducing accidents to achieve good level of security.
