The R.R.I (Route Relay Interlocking) panel at each station is purely based on Relay Logic. All the data coming from the field such as Signal Aspects (Danger, Caution, Attention, and Clear), Track Circuit (Released, Occupied) and Points (Normal, Reverse) conditions are given directly to the relay room through cables. From the relay room the corresponding indications come on the panel.
These real time data will not be available to us. Hence the idea of simulation comes in. Thus, with the help of a microcontroller four conditions were emulated which depicts all the important aspects of interlocking as well as signalling required for managing trains.
