Railway Prophet / Warning Device

Railway Prophet
Railway Prophet

Railway patrol workers need to inspect and repair railways every day along railways. Although the patrolman has a timetable for train arrival, the work still has a high risk because the patrolman can not accurately know the specific location of the train.
Railway Prophet can alert the coming train by sensing the vibration of the railway track caused by the operation of distant train. With the shortening of distance, the frequency and intensity of alert sound and warning lamp are increased. Railway Prophet can run on the rails. When the train passes, the patrol workers can easily lift the railway maintenance alarm to avoid the train.
