Station names with distance indicator in railways
With the title itself, one can understand that this project is exclusively used to give the information of the forthcoming station to the passengers in the train. Most of the passengers do not bother about the stations arriving until their destination station arrives. There may also be chances like they miss their destination and has to get down at some other station and go back to reach their destination. To get rid of this kind of problems, we have designed a project Automatic Station Indication System.
Apart from indicating the upcoming station the distance of the next station from the present position is also calculated and displayed on the LCD. In this we are taking the longitude and latitude values of all the stations initially and calculate the distance with the longitude and latitude of the present position of the train which can be received from the GPS unit
