Intelligent Train - It is a very good idea. Although I am not an Engineer, with my Enthusiasm I hope & Wish that I can enrich the concept. Deliverable Story Link:
— Coding Topics:
Example (1) ‘Metro Rail‘ travels say 5 km in a route, i.e., 5000 meters = 500000 cms.
The circumference of the Wheel of the Train is 70*22/7 = 220 cm.
Hence, to cross the 5 km distance, the train wheel has to rotate = 500000/220 =2273 times.
In other words, the wheel has to rotate 2273 times to reach 5 km distance.
Can we develop coding for the braking system to stop the train exact place like, when the route digital counter shows / reaches (say) 1st station at 1254, 2nd station at 1732, 3rd station at 2015…… like that.
When the train reaching 1st station, i.e., digital counter nearing 1254 revolutions, the software sends signal to braking system I, II, III, etc which will apply brakes slowly and finally stops and locks at 1254th revolution.
In our two-wheeler we are having Speedo Meter. It shows Vehicle Speed as 0 k.m. – 30 k.m. – 60 k.m., etc In that Meter, we are having Distance Meter also. It shows the distance travelled by the Vehicle as 12435.6 – 12435.9, etc
Can we develop using / sending signal to clutch variator
