Cost Effective Bus Intimation System for the Public Using GPS and GSM Technology
R. Pradeep Saravana Kumar | V. Goudham
Abstract: This paper deals with the design and development of an embedded system, which is used to intimate the passengers about the presence or absence of a bus in that particular route, at that particular time. The project idea which is dealt in this paper is based on GPS and GSM technology. The main objective of the system is to intimate the passengers about the presence or absence and the approximate time, that the bus would take to reach the bus stop, from where the passenger would have requested to get the intimation. The proposed system consists of two parts; let it be named part-A and part- B. The part-System would be kept at the bus stops and the part-B system would be kept at each and every bus. The components used and the details of interfacing has been discussed in the forthcoming topics of this paper. Any system that has to be implemented on a large scale has to be a cost effective one. The system which has been discussed in this paper shares the same roof, of being a cost effective one. The main concept behind this proposed system is introducing mobile communication into the embedded systems.
