Abstract

Passenger counting systems can help to fleet managers to plan route of city buses effectively by supplying the information of number of passenger inside a bus. By combining passenger counting system with a GPS system, location of the bus and number of passenger in the vehicle can be monitored online and an effective plan of city transportation can be done. With this system estimated time of arrival for the next station with the rate of fullness can be calculated and this information can be supplied to the fleet management center.
Application of IP (Internet Protocol) cameras will provide online information about the vehicle inside and surrounding to the fleet management center. If the vehicle deviates from its standard route or panic buttons located near driver and inside passenger cabin are pressed , an emergency signal can be sent to the fleet management center and vehicle can be monitored simultaneously via IP Cameras.
By checking the position of the vehicle via GPS system, advertisements or touristic information near the region can be displayed in special LCD monitors located between the glazes of side glasses.
In the current study, application details of these systems to a 12 meter low floor city bus, system components, and software details were discussed and explained in detail.
