Automating the Bus Using Sensors and Android Application
Ishwarya International Journal of Computer & Mathematical Sciences IJCMS
In the smart bus system, the user who visits unknown city is unable to find the location or landmark of the place he/she is in. During his/her journey in the vehicle, may think of when my stop comes, how far I'm from my destination, etc. This issue is answered by our proposed model in this paper where the mobile phones with android application find the bus route based on the Location Based Services (LBS) finder which is embedded. Windows are kept opened when it is sunny and it is closed
... cally when rain is detected. It also has the facility of Wi-Fi.It can also detect tunnels and traffic. The wireless charger is implemented through the magnetic coupling between a power transmitter, which is connected to the grid, and a power receiver, which is integrated inside the load device.Doors of the bus will be opened automatically when a person approaches the door.The door remains opened until the door way is cleared. When the door way is cleared door is closed automatically.The lights in the bus automatically turn ON in the night and turn OFF automatically at morning based on IC CA3140 which is basically an operational amplifier which can unite the voltage PMOS transistors to the high voltage bipolar transistor on particular chip. The system also checks Seat Status that would indicate people the status of seats in the bus, occupied or unoccupied. This was achieved by attaching a pressure sensor to the bus seats. The results can be viewed by the user to monitor Temperature, Humidity and Fuel consumption. In the model, once the bus number is entered, the application displays the list of stops that are to be covered by the specified bus number for the route. Depending on users' selected destination, the application locates source and destination on the map, and then a dialog box appears on the map where we set the alarm as a notification.
