Public transport tracking through mobile application using radio frequency identification technology
MetadataShow full item record
The main aim of our thesis is to relieve general mass from the regular hassle of waiting in long queues for public transport such as bus. We plan to do so by developing an android based cell phone application (app) which will provide information, such as “accurate nearest location” of a bus in a particular route and “time left” for its arrival, to the users of this app waiting in a bus stop. The project is done by using Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology (radio frequency receiver and radio frequency tags) and microcontrollers. These devices transmit vehicles location to remote servers and based on that servers use established technique to calculate approximate time left for bus arrival and distribute this information to the respective clients’; the cell phone application, which we named as “Amar Bus”. We believe this free app will make commoners’ everyday life easier and improve overall experience of commuting in busy metro city of developing country, like Dhaka.
