Abstract: Indian Railways is one of the largest railway passenger modes of transport in the world and is the backbone of the Indian transport infrastructure. However in terms of safety parameters and reliability we have not reached the global standards yet. The major rail accidents occur due to derailment of trains which are caused due to fault in the railway tracks. In this paper, we present to you a LASER pulse-EMAT crack detection system. The location and severity of the crack can be easily sent to the server or cloud storage, for necessary action. LASER pulse is incident on the track twice, after sometime on the same location for more precise monitoring of the tracks. This system can save many lives, by preventing major derailments of trains, in a country where rail accidents have become quite frequent.
