Real Time Bus Monitoring System

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 433)


The real time bus monitoring system may be designed to serve as a tracking system for the frequent local bus travelers using a GPS (Global positioning system) device and GPRS (General packet radio service) system. This paper focuses on system that help passengers locate the current location of the buses and expected arrival time of the buses to their nearest bus stop. The location and ETA (Estimated Time of Arrival) will be shown on the mobile app and can also be received through SMS (Short Messaging Service). The location can also be tracked by the network administrator through a web application which will keep the complete location history of the busses.
