Wireless sensor networks have been widely used in various areas, and their use in railway to reduce human and material losses has been a remarkable development. In this article, sensors placed in different places in railway are described and the way they recognize flaws in the railway is explained. The data read by the sensors are sent to the sink node to be processed. Fuzzy logic has been used to process these data.


Key words: Fuzzy logic, fuzzy control system, railway security system, learning, wireless sensor network (WSN).
