Performance Improvement of Indian Railway Signaling: Recent Advances and Development

For fast trains, cab signalling is unavoidable. And the search for cab signalling has been going on for almost a century. This chapter discusses cost-effective and dependable wireless cab signalling. Traditional land post light signals operated from the station are the present mode of signalling in Indian railways, and the light signals regulate train movement. Due to poor vision caused by climatic circumstances [mist and heavy rain], fast blind corners, up and downs, and blinding sunlight, it is frequently impossible to drive the train at a steady speed, necessitating the use of brakes, which causes discomfort and loses energy and time. We can send cab signals to the loco pilot in real time, allowing the train service to continue without interruption due to the above cause. I describe a way for providing cab light signal by electromagnetic waves using typical land post light signal control (EMW). The suggested system is a preliminary implementation of cab signalling that is linked and merged with the existing automatic block signalling system to improve the efficiency of the Indian railway signalling system.
