Bluerails is the name of a concept system that’ll revolutionize the signaling system of the railways. The current rail signalling system uses wired LED signals that controls the rail traffic The concept system would eliminate all the complex wiring arrangements and lever boxes.
Bluerails means controlling the rails through the application of Bluetooth networks. The rail signaling systems would be attached with an advanced bluetooth modules that’ll control the signal The modules would be connected through Bluetooth networks provided by the junction stations.
The stations would have highspeed server room connected toa centrallized national networkshowing the position and timingof different trains. Due to this the signals colud be controlled so as to minimise the train delay log.
The Engineand guardrooms will befitted with aBlue module that’ll alarm when coming in network range of another blue module . This would help in avoiding head-on accidents Also this module will indicate the signal in the engine in case of any problem with signal lights.
Replace the oldlever and relaymethod of signaling Increases reliability and reduces the overall maintenance cost. Use of several kilometres of signaling wires. Increase rail safety Decrease time delay and provides real time train running information.
Bluerails concept is a revolutionary concept that can greatly affect railway traffic and safety. With some further improvisations and technical assistance this project can be highly beneficial for Indian government and railways
