Abstract: Most of the commercial goods are transported using railway trains and therefore, any problem in above network has the capacity to incur damage to the economy of that country. This model illustrates a cost effective yet robust solution to the issues related to railway crack detection. The project discusses the technical and design aspects in details alongside a better crack detection algorithm. The model also presents data related to all the components used in this system. The currently prevailing solution in the detection of cracks in rails involve periodic maintenance connected to occasional monitoring method like visual inspection, ultrasonic inspection, eddy current and laser methods.
