Auto Metro Train to Shuttle between Stations
This project is designed to demonstrate the technology used in metro train movement which are used in most of the developed countries. This train is equipped with a controller, that enables the automatic running of the train from one station to another.
This proposed system is an autonomous train and it eliminates the need of any driver. Thus, any human error is ruled out. In this project microcontroller from 8051 family has been used as CPU. Whenever the train arrives at the station it stops automatically, as sensed by an IR sensor.
Then the door is opens automatically so that the passengers can go inside the train. The door then closes after a prescribed time set in the controller by the program. It is also equipped with a passenger counting section, which counts the number of passengers leaving and entering the train. The door closes when it reaches maximum occupancy level irrespective of time allotted for the door to remain open.
The passenger counts are displayed on a seven segment display interfaced to the microcontroller. The movement of the train is controlled by a motor driver IC interfaced to the microcontroller. The train incorporates a buzzer to alert the passengers before closing the door and also warn them before staring. As the train reaches the destination the process repeats thus achieving the desired operation.
Further the project can be enhanced by making this system more advanced by displaying the status of the train over an LCD screen for the convenience of the passengers. The status of the train consists of the parameters like, expected arrival and departure time etc.

"I live in Hyderabad, a place that is known for engineering colleges. Went with frnd and bought a set from Ameerpet(tht hs rdymade stuff like this) and it failed just b4 viva. Thats when we got this thx to a senior who is sorta like a geek.. and let me tell u.. Its one reason why me and my frnds got thru the final sem. Works great and is useful too later.. "Ravi Teja

"A must-buy. It helped me practice in real time and learn how to make a project by looking at an actual workable unit. (fyi - you get a fully built unit and another full set of components to build another by yourself) so it was great value for us. We shared the costs by 3 (our team for the project) but i got to keep my unit as the other two kept the original. Showed it for my on-campus and got thru too becuase it not just looked neat and profesionally bt worked great later. (still have it in my room, now working with GE in Bangalore) "Anusha

"We have used it for our institution - it is available in lab and has been good for explaining various models in live during class. Strongly suggest every college dept to have it for labs as it is working well - even with regular use at lab for more than 1 year. Note:We got the unit complementarity before launch in 2014 and have later purchased few batches. The team behind it is professional and know what electronics students need and i am writing this review on their request on 13/05/2016"Mr. Ramesh Kumar Jha

Q: Which microcontroller is used in this project?
A: The microcontroller used in this project is a 40 pin IC from 8051 family.
Q: What is concept behind metro train?
A: The concept behind the metro train is a complete automatic operation of the train with limited passenger capacity.
Q: What is the passenger limit count?
A: Passenger limit count is 5.
Q: How does the counting of passenger happen?
A: Counting of passengers happen by using bidirectional detection by IR and photo diode arrangement
Q: What is the battery voltage rating used?
A: The voltage rating is 6V for each battery.
Q: Can a voice over system be implemented with this system?
A: No, voice over system cannot be implemented.
Q: How does the train halt at the destination?
A: The train halts at any destination when any reflecting surface is detected by the IR sensor.
Q: What happens when passenger limit is exceeded?
A: A beep sound will be heard and the train will not move.
Q: Is it possible to increase the maximum limit for number of passengers?
A: Yes, it is possible to increase the maximum limit, on demand.
Q: Is it possible to extend from two to more number of stations?
A: No, it is not possible to extend from two to more number of stations.
