Chapter 1Introduction 1.1 NeedTransportation is a major pain area for cities today. With the ever increasing load on public transport systems, it is really necessary to increase efficiency in these systems. Due to extreme traffic conditions, over-crowding and many other similar issues, public buses lack punctuality and reliability. There is a dire need to tackle this issue. The required solution should not only facilitate improvement in the services, but should also be a driving factor for increase in trust on the public bus transport systems. Reliability in public transport will be facilitated when the traveller accurately knows when a bus will arrive to the bus stop or when will the bus reach the destination.1.
2 Basic ConceptThe solution proposed in this paper harnesses the real time location of the buses to calculate the estimated time for reaching a particular position. By saving location data on the server along with corresponding timestamps, we can estimate the time for the bus to arrive as a bus stop, or time to reach a destination, using services like Google maps1.3 ObjectivesE-ticketing systems Android tablet phones Crowd sourcing location dataIOT BACKEND ARCHITECTUREChapter 2Literature Survey2.1: Real Time Bus Position and Time Monitoring System Many passengers are usually late to work, students are late for classes as a result of they decide to anticipate the bus rather than simply merely using another alternate transportation. A variable message shown on the web which will be real time info regarding the bus showing the time of arrival at a particular bus stop might scale back the anxiety of passengers expecting the bus. With the advent of GPS and also the ubiquitous cellular network, real time vehicle tracking for higher transport management has become attainable. These technologies can be applied to conveyance systems particularly public buses, those are not ready to adhere to predefined timetables owing to reasons like traffic jams, breakdowns etc.
The increased waiting time and the uncertainty in bus arrival build conveyance system unattractive for passengers. The time observance and real-time bus position system uses GPS technology alongside totally different application to fetch knowledge and with code that displays the information online on with different buses on a special route to the user. When this info is conferred to the traveler by wired or wireless media or online internet media, they can use their time with efficiency and reach the stop simply before the public bus arrives, or if the bus is delayed. They can even arrange their journeys long before they really undertake them.This will build the general public transport system competitive and passenger friendly.
The use of personal vehicles is reduced when additional individuals use transit vehicles, which in turn reduces traffic and pollution.
