All LCGates in the US are unmanned, and the trains pass them with just 20 second warnings. Here, people try to sneak their motorbikes and cycles and other vehicles under the gates while the gates are closed. It is the mentality that has to change, more than the electronic system.

ISRO must start thinking on developing more and more direct impact technologies. i.e. the technologies that start impacting the life of comman citizen immediately on deployment.
