An Iot Approach to The Issues of Bus Commuters

Authors(3) :-Abhinav, Akshari Nidugala, Prof. C. N. Chinnaswamy

As we are rapidly moving towards the India, which Dr. A.P.J Abdul Kalam mentioned in his vision for India 2020, we have projected our nation as a developing country in transition to developed nation status. The development of smart cites is in full swing and several hundred crores of INR is being spent on the development of smart cities. Various sectors in economy have seen immense involvement of technology. Public transit, especially buses are considered as the lifeline of the nation. But, the development of this sector is very subtle since the last few decades. The introduction of Internet of Things(IoT) in the blooming silicon market provided us with an opportunity to enhance customer experience of bus commuters(especially daily commuters).With the integration of various sensors and Arduino modules, we have designed a solution for various problems( such as overcrowding) faced by the bus commuters on a daily basis. It will help immensely in the development of smart cities which will eventually lead to the nation’s overall development.
