Bus Position Monitoring System to Facilitate the Passengers
With the advent of GPS and the ubiquitous cellular network, real time vehicle tracking for better transport management has become possible. These technologies can be applied to public transport systems, especially buses, which are not able to adhere to predefined timetables due to reasons like traffic jams, breakdowns etc. In this paper, the authors design a wireless communication based bus position monitoring system, which is much resourceful in operation. They utilize the wireless communication (GSM-GPS technology), provide the information about number of seats available in the bus and send the information to the bus station if any problems occur in the bus.
