An intelligent device advanced Vigilance control device in train loco is used to check the alertness of the loco pilot. It is the Microcontroller based multi -resettable device which is used to monitor the loco pilot’s action. This device is used to apply the emergency brake automatically by cyclically generating the warning signals. It reduces the error caused by the loco pilot if the driver is unconscious, dead or fast asleep and ensures the safety to the passengers by automatically stopping the train. It stores the actions carried out by the loco pilot periodically which can be used as the reference to find out the courses of action done by the pilot. The information during the events can be used for future analysis. This paper also informs the position of the loco mob to the higher authorities and tracks the position of the train where it is stopped by using Global System for Mobile communication (GSM) and Global Positioning System (GPS) technologies.
