SIMRAN

SIMRAN,developed by IIT-Kanpur,is a satellite imaging software for rail navigation system which is expected to bring the number of train accidents down.The software has been developed, as part of the Railway Safety Technology Mission, by an IIT-led consortium of academic institutions, companies, and R&D outfits.

.It is a train-tracking system which involves a simple implementation of the geo-positioning system, GSM and radio frequency-based instrumentation. It helps monitoring every train in a certain geographical boundary for its location, speed, and the direction of movement. Thus, it can be of great help to the railways department in averting collisions

The system provides information on the arrival of a train at the station, its departure, the time taken to move from one station to another, the position of the train between two stations being updated every minute, etc.

Additionally this technology is also beneficial for a number of other transport modes where tracking is involved.

  1. this may not be useful for trains going opposite to each other . Beneficial only for train moving in a single direction ?
