Developing a Multi-modal Transport System by Linkage of Local Public Transport with Commuter Trains Using Software as a Service (SaaS) Architecture
A system needs to be developed to automate the traveling of every individual by unification of Amazon web services public cloud and various open-source technologies like MongoDB for persisting data and data-driven documents (D3.js) for visualization. This system is a multi-modal structure by integrating the commuter trains with local public transport like buses to make traveling swift and regulated. The system will authenticate every user in real time and plan the journey of every commuter from his/her source to the desired destination as per their traveling behavior. This system will notify the commuters via SES (email) and chatbot which is an interactive service platform to keep commuters up to date about their daily travels and other journey related information. Besides users can also directly communicate with the chatbot for any queries or questions related to their travel. The commuters and admin can also visualize their data in the form of real-time graphs from their user accounts or admin page. The commuters will be notified about the real-time availability of trains and buses to set up their journey, thereby making this system more robust and plain sailing. This entire architecture is hosted on a public cloud which will make it more reliable, inexpensive, and easy to scale.
