Abstract: Indian Railways has the largest rail network in the world and is also responsible for transferring millions and millions of passengers on a daily basis. But it has obtained the reputation of being accident prone. Consequently the safety record of Indian Railways is very low. Many factors affect the safety of the trains in Indian Railways. Major environmental conditions, geographical conditions and the conditions of the driver’s driving the trains are all factors which contribute towards accidents. Along with these conditions the track conditions and the asset conditions also contribute towards accidents. This paper presents a simple technique to reduce accidents in Indian Railways as well as monitor the train on a real time basis with very low cost application
