Students present feasible models to avoid accidents at level-crossings

Staff Reporter
The district-level Inspire Science Fair-2014 held here on Tuesday demonstrated the impact of Masaipet train accident, in which 16 schoolchildren were killed, on students who displayed their models on how the accident could have been averted.
About 20 students among those who took part in the event came up with models explaining how the Masaipet accident could have been avoided in unmanned level-crossings using advanced technology.
P. Sowjanya, a student from Kurampally High School in Chandur mandal, presented a model with an automated railway gate that operates using infra-red censor technology.
She was guided by her physics teacher Konam Srinivas.
Explaining about the project, Mr. Srinivas said when the train arrives near level-crossing, the gates would automatically close using infra-red signals emanated from one of the poles erected at the level-crossings.
A. Ashwini, a tenth standard student from Malkapur, presented a model that was made using pressure censors. The censors would be placed under railway tracks a km away from the unmanned level-crossings and when the train arrives, the gates would get closed automatically.
Interestingly, all the students came up with working models.
Talking about the overwhelming response from students to the event, M. Yadaiah, a teacher, said that they were moved by the death of many innocent schoolchildren in the Masaipet accident and so wanted to find a lasting solution for the problem that caused the tragedy.
Another teacher M. Giridhar appealed to the Indian Railways to study all the models and adopt any one that suits their needs.
