Determining the location of a bus in real-time using LORA technology.
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.
Capstone Project submitted to the Department of Engineering, Ashesi University in partial fulfilment of the requirements for the award of Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering, April 2019.
