The objective of this paper is to design a framework for an automatic railway gate controller for automatic opening and closing of railway gates on arrival and departure of train respectively. It is developed with an intention to reduce the number of accidents particularly at unmanned level crossings. The system also reduces the time for which the gate remains closed. This type of gates can be employed in an unmanned level crossing where the chances of accidents are higher and reliable operation is required. Since, the operation is automatic; error due to manual operation can be prevented. The system works on a microcontroller based system. It receives the input signal from the two sensors and sends information to the gate motor driver for opening and closing of the gate. The arrival and leaving of the system is monitored and the gate is operated accordingly.
