Abstract
Travelers without prior information about the bus they are waiting, often waste time at bus stations which affects their day activity plan. GPS receivers are used to address this problem by providing real-time about the location of the bus, however, it is quite expensive and power consuming to use and every bus needs to have a GSM/GPRS module to be able to send the information to the internet. This project suggests a low-cost and less power consuming approach of using LoRa technology, geometry methods to determine the location of the bus and only one GSM module for multiple buses to transmit the data to the internet. Results in the project show success in determining the location of the bus in real-time.
