Population growth is directly related to transportation connectivity. In India, transport facilities are primarily served by Indian Railways. The work “OFFLINE TRAIN TRACKING SYSTEM” works on transmitter receiver-based logic. Transmitters are installed at stations and receivers are installed inside trains. When the train comes within range of the transmitter, the receiver receives the signal and displays the station name on the LCD screen. Transmitters installed at stations operate on 230 V AC and receivers in trains operate on 9 V DC. Work is not manually controlled. If the transmitter is on and the receiver is receiving the signal. Then, the station name is automatically displayed on the display. The work is not manually controlled. When the transmitter is ON and the receiver receives signals from transmitter, then the display unit automatically displays the station name. NRF Transceiver is used in both railway station and train. Lora transceiver can also be used in place of NRF transceiver module, it has the range of 2.5 Km, and it can be more helpful in the case of early projection of forthcoming station. NRF transceiver has the range of 500 meters. It is not expensive and effective in nature. Lora transceiver is expensive and more effective than NRF module. Microcontroller is used in this project, and it is programmed with Embedded C. LCD Display and voice alert is installed with the microcontroller. As the transceiver in the station gives area information to the transceiver located in the train, the microcontroller projects the station name in the display and voice alert is also installed.
