Preferred Abstract (Original): 

Information technology (IT) has transformed many industries, from education to health care to government, and is now in the early stages of transforming transportation systems. Transportation faces many issues like high accidents rate in general, and much more rate in developing countries due to the lack of proper infrastructure for roads, is one of the reasons for these crashes. In this project we focus on public transportation vehicles - such as buses, and mini-buses -, where the goal of the project is to design and deploy a smart/intelligent unit attached to public vehicles by using embedded microcontroller and sensors and empowering them to communicate with each other through wireless technologies. The proposed Offline Intelligent Public Transportation Management System will play a major role in reducing risks and high accidents rate, whereas it can increase the traveler satisfactions and convenience. Here, we propose a method, software as well as a framework as enabling technologies to for evaluation, planning and future improvement the public transportation system. Our system even though can be as whole or parts can be applied all over the world we mostly target developing countries. This limitation mostly appear by consider off-shelf technologies such as WiFi, GPS and Open Street Maps (OSM).

Preferred Abstract (Original): 

Nowadays, the evolution in transportation technologies makes the necessity for
increasing road safety. In this context, we propose the implementation of a smart onboard
GPS/GPRS system to be attached to vehicles for monitoring and controlling their speed. In
case of traffic speed violation, a GPRS message containing information about the vehicle
such as location and maximum speed is sent to a hosting server located in an authorized
office so that the violated vehicle is ticketed. Moreover, this system can also track the ...
