Abstract

The government is encouraging the use of public transportation to overcome the traffic congestion problem in Malaysia. To attract road users to use the public transportation, the circulation of the system has to be efficient and reliable. For that reason, in this research, a bus identification and monitoring system is built to enable the tracking of buses, which is one of the most popular public transportations in Malaysia. A few of technologies are integrated in the system, which are RFID, GPS, GPRS and GIS. GIS is the main technology discussed in this paper. GIS is used to represent the location of campus bus as a part of the bus identification and monitoring system by mapping out the bus location and movement in the form of geographic map. OpenCV, GDI, and EmguCV are used to draw the map and linked to VB.net as the language used for the whole system. GIS formation from separate layers and the combination of the layers as a map are presented. Information of the bus such as the timing schedule, driver's details, bus details and the bus location are also added in the developed GUI. The bus operation is suitable to be viewed in GIS. Apart from displaying the location of the bus in the map form, other additional and useful information can also be viewed.
