Real-Time Bus Tracking System

Authors(2) :-Prajakta Indulkar, Vaibhav Nikam

The Real Time Bus Monitoring and Passenger Information bus tracking device is a system that is designed to display the real-time location of the buses in metropolitan cities. This bus tracking device will serve as a workable notification system that will effectively assist passengers in making the decision of whether to wait for the bus or to go for another option. The system will enable the tracking device to obtain GPS data of the bus locations, which will then be transferred to a centralized control unit. This system will contain transmitter module which will be installed on the buses, receiver boards installed on the bus stops, map of the bus transportation routes at the centralized controller. It will also have the information system software installed at the bus stops which will provide the user, the relevant information regarding all the bus number going from his source to destination and also the route details. The existing system find it difficult to stick to the given time schedule and reschedule its time if the bus is stuck in traffic or is late due to congestion of roads. The proposed real time bus monitoring system helps to overcome the disadvantage of this already existing system. The modules assemble will enable the tracking device to obtain GPS data of the bus locations. It will also transmit the bus number and its route as soon as the bus comes within the range of the receiver.
