(i) Development and implementation of Satellite based system for warning at unmanned level crossing gates of Indian Railways has been undertaken by Research Designs & Standards Organisation (RDSO)/Ministry of Railways and Space Applications Centre/Indian Space Research Organisation (SAC/ISRO).
(ii) Development and implementation of a Suitable and Viable Vandal-Proof Advance Warning System (Radio & Radio Frequency Identification based) to Pre-warn road users against approaching train at unmanned level crossing gate was undertaken by RDSO in association with IIT/Kanpur at one LC gate.
Based on the report submitted, RDSO is now conducting extended field trials at 10 unmanned LC gates in association with IIT/Kanpur to check the efficacy of the system.
Based on the extended trial report, the adoption of the technologies shall be considered.
