Bus tracking is an application that tracks a bus and gathers the distance to each station along its route. Tracking System involves the installation of an electronic device in a bus, with an installed Android App on any SMART phone to enable the Administrator/User to track the bus location. Based on IoT this project is implemented as android application. There are two applications one for server and the other for the client. Buses carry GPS devices to track their positions. By this positions to server are periodically updated. Client application displays map showing the position of bus. It shows where buses are on a map and provide students and staffs the updated information at different time interval using RTC. The server will monitor location and will store its data in the database. It is a real-time system as this method automatically sends the information on the GPS system to a system/SMART phone. The students/staffs can get flexibility of planning travel using the app, to decide when to catch the bus. Arduino UNO microcontroller is used to programming for software and hardware module. And it is connected to the cloud and following through the android app. The waiting time of the user can be reduced. Simple mode of communication is the key feature of the Bus Tracking system. This application can be easily extended for central tracking system to keep track of all the buses. The different queries and efficient route management can be easily done through central server system.
