Towards a Secure Travel Assistance Device for GPS/GPRS Enabled Mobile Users to Aid Transit Riders With Special Needs
As urban living environment is becoming more and more complex; the road condition is becoming worse because of heavy traffic, tremendous increase in accidents and most importantly the security issues that have been raised by recent incidences. To solve such problem with respect to school going children, a school bus tracking system has been developed. The system provides ANDROID Applications for the device in a bus as well as for parents of children travelling by the bus. A school bus tracking system determines the position of the bus with a GPS/GPRS enabled cell phone and displays the position on a Google map.
