The cloud technology is becoming ubiquitous and making the things easier. The idea is to seep this technology into the trains and other transport systems also. Without technology, transport system is more complicated and boring and these can compensated with cloud. A central server on the train, with memory, processing capacity, internet connectivity and with a local network throughout the train (access points in each compartment or use directional antennas) could be of great use to passengers, railway authority and police. The technology improvement goes in hand with the use of clouds on train. With help of Global Positioning System (GPS) and internet, cloud can predict the train clash possibility and alert the concerned authority. This cloud can be used for some of the services like software as a service, infrastructure as a service, etc., and also enjoy on demand services like video streaming, etc., locally. The server can also be used by railway authority for updating the passenger details and know about vacancy of berths and other information which makes it easy for them to know anything at the snap of the finger, even when there is no connectivity between bogies. The cloud can be used to collect the information about the surroundings and give the notifications to the user/whoever is connected to the server.
