The traditional seat allocation problems in Indian railways has led to one of the main bottlenecks called berth scheduling. The railway berths play a crucial role in the night time journey. The automated filling of berths will proportionally dependent on the equal weight allocation in the railway terminal. An alternative way for increasing the ease of transport for the aged population travelling in the train is by automatically shifting them instead of climbing to their respective upper berths. The proposed method using precision engineered column TV lift linear actuators will enhance the berth usability and allows the passengers to utilize the upper berths in an efficient manner.
