Abstract: With the rapid growth of things connected to Internet leading to the massive scale on increase of devices for automation and control. An explosive demand adds the strength to ubiquitous computation and the device interaction over cyber physical systems. This commendable support is taken in to practice for giving an automated IOT solution for the railway level crossing problems faced across the countries. Especially in populated countries like India the size of traffic on roads and railways is happening in a short time at a great rate. The situation is always alarming at the exchange of transport between these mechanisms at a common point called railway level crossing. In this paper we are providing a novel, cost effective and intelligent IOT solution using Raspberry Pi outfitted with sensors, RFID tags and load cell to predict the arrival or crossing of trains, also controlling the gates to get rid the problems arising manually by restricting the vehicles not to face the disasters. It enhance the effectiveness, trustworthy of the railways in the community of passengers.
