Abstract -
Automatic systems are now used in almost all areas and facilitate life. Arduino-based systems have begun to be widely used and have begun to be preferred. Arduino-based automatic systems are programmed to perform a task, both reducing the error rate and is safe.It also offers great advantages in terms of cost. Railway transport is one of the reliable and fast vehicles all over the world. High-speed trains used in transporting passengers in many countries. Passenger demand clearly shows this condition.In addition to passenger transport, trains are also preferred because of their high freight transport, which allows them to transport at the same time. Therefore, the railways always safe enough.Security is especially important at intersections with roads (level crossing).Because trains stop too long distance because of carrying the heavy load.not have any dangerous situations on the railway.There should no dangerous situations on the railway in the crossings.The shutdown of the highway by an automatic system barrier system before the train arrives and the reopening after the train has passed, will provide very large security. In this study, a sample model was designed using Arduino card. The error-free operation of the system shows that it be applied in level crossing. For the system to operate, electric infrastructure is a necessary prerequisite. After that the system should be further improved by increasing the number of sensors.
