This paper describes the development of automatic announcement system for train passenger based on radio-frequency identification (RFID) and programmable integrated circuit (PIC). It is developed to solve the inconsistentannouncement of the current system. This system is able to announce automatically the next destination as the train is travelingto the next stop, hence improve the manual announcement system in the train. The RFID tag which acts as sensor is placed atdesignated location along the track while the RFID reader is at the train. A PIC that holds the programmed instructions is tointerface between RFID and announcement system. The PIC is programmed using C language to make this project functionsmoothly. It receives destination data from RFID reader once the train moves and passes the RFID tag at the designatedlocation. The identified data is converted into a signal. The destination signal is then announced through the PA system (loudspeaker) in the train
