Abstract

In the current study, a special mobile application was designed for the use of drivers, fleet managers and passengers of a smart city bus. In the driver section of the application, some properties of smart city bus can be controlled via mobile application. Driver can start/stop the vehicle, control the A/C system, preheater, lights, doors, horn etc of the bus by using this mobile application. In the fleet manager section, some of important vehicle parameters, like instantaneous/average fuel consumption, engine speed, vehicle speed, engine coolant temperature, brake lining thickness, fuel level in the tank, all error codes for engine, transmission, brake or any other system in the bus etc can be monitored by fleet manager via mobile application. In the Passenger section of the application, passengers can see estimated time of arrival for their station with the rate of fullness and real time position of the bus supplied by GPS. If passenger is inside the vehicle, passenger can connect to the media archive of the vehicle with Wi-Fi and watch videos or listen music. In the current study, system components, and software details of the application were discussed and explained.
