Description

The project aims to develop efficient software techniques that utilize GPS data for establishing a better correspondence between the status of buses, most importantly their current positions, and the information about this status as known by the surrounding infrastructure, e.g., the central server and the on-line electronic displays at bus terminals and stops. The project's focus is on the development of algorithms that provide more accurate prediction of the arrival times of buses at bus stops. In doing so, the project also aims to reduce the communication needed between the buses and the infrastructure. Finally, the project will contribute towards improve scheduling.
