Web-based Bus Tracking System in the Internet of Things IoT

 Author (s)

Public transportation has become integral to daily life, as individuals rely on it to commute between their homes, workplaces, and colleges. However, unnecessary waiting times during transport often result in time wastage. Students frequently find themselves in lines, longing to know the whereabouts of buses and their estimated arrival times at the bus stop. To address these issues, this study presents the development of a web-based system that highlights the routes taken by each bus during its journey. Integrated with Google Maps, the system enables students to conveniently access the routes and schedules of buses. The system provides users with information, including real-time updates on the bus’s live location, displayed on the map interface. The system offers additional details about the bus driver, such as their names, phone numbers, bus numbers, and start and end times of their shifts. Users can access this information from anywhere, whether they are at home, work, or college, utilizing the web-based application and an internet connection. Also, a QR code scanning feature is available at bus stops, allowing people to quickly access the desired information. By implementing this system, users, particularly students, gain enhanced visibility into bus routes and schedules, enabling better planning and minimizing waiting times. The web-based platform offers convenience and accessibility, empowering users to make informed decisions about their journeys. The integration of live bus tracking, driver information, and QR code scanning improves the overall user experience and provides a comprehensive solution for public transportation users.
