Railway passenger safety is linked with the security and protection of railway properties such as railway platforms and trains. Reducing unauthorized entry with the assistance of management systems guarantees a high level of protection for passengers as well as commodities on the railway platform. Various measures have been taken to limit unauthorized entry in the form of barriers for railway tracks, the implementation of CCTV cameras on the high-risk sites, the delivery of information to concerned authorities, and the strengthening of regulatory oversight. Access management systems play an important part in preventing unauthorized access using automating the entrance and exit operations as well as safeguarding important areas. Moreover, the entry of unauthorized persons and a huge number of visitors resulting in the uncontrollable crowd on railway platforms entering and exiting using unmanned checkpoints at stations are susceptible to a security threat, and hence, the requirement to minimalize the risk of the unauthorized entrance to platforms has increased.
