Driverless trains are equipped with a control system, which is programmed to make them following a specific path. Stations on such a path, timings of the train and distances between stations are all predefined. Messages and warnings are automatically generated and announced to the passengers. This paper presents the development process of a prototype for a driverless train implemented using a PIC microcontroller. Simulation for the system's circuits is done with the aid of Proteus software. The hardware circuits, which are built on printed circuit boards (PCB) are interfaced with actuators and sensors for automation purposes. The hardware is assembled in a toy-like prototype train. The C programming language is used for programming the microcontroller.
