Locomotive surveillance is the most active research topic and still faces big technical challenges in railway safety control system. An end-to-end locomotive tracking and continuous monitoring system is necessary for safety measures in satellite visible and low satellite visible environment. These smart systems aim to updates the information on location, exact detection, speed limitation and also rail track information. This paper contributes to develop an intelligent tracking and monitoring system based on Internet of Things (IoT) platform using Differential Global Positioning System (DGPS) for improved tracking accuracy of locomotive in both environments. Interacting Multiple Model (IMM) tracking algorithm based on Di-filter model is proposed for analysis that make it easy to pinpoint the location and its status of the locomotive.
