With the title itself, one can understand that this project is exclusively used to give the information of the forthcoming station to the passengers in the train. Most of the passengers do not bother about the stations arriving until their destination station arrives. There may also be chances like they miss their destination and has to get down at some other station and go back to reach their destination. To get rid of this kind of problems, we have designed a project Automatic Station Indication System.
This project uses wireless communication, RF. RF has the advantages of fast communication for longer distances and reliability. The RF modules used here are STT-433 MHz Transmitter, STR-433 MHz Receiver, HT640 RF Encoder and HT648 RF Decoder.
Every station will be having the RF transmitter. The RF receiver will be fixed in every compartment in the train. As the train moves and approaches, the RF transmitter fixed at one end in the station continuously transmits the area code. The RF receiver present in the train, as it comes in the range receives this information and displays on LCD fixed in each compartment. Thus the passengers can know the forthcoming station and act accordingly.
