Bus-tracking system at Georgia Tech

Students at Georgia Tech developed this Arduino-based, solar-powered bus-tracking system that shows students where the buses are on campus at any given time so they can decide if it’s quicker to wait for the bus or walk to their next class. The site for the system has lots of information and media on the system’s construction and implementation.

    That’s brilliant! I can tell you first-hand that the Stingers and Tech Trolleys are notorious for failing to keep a consistent schedule.

      Yes most schools would just have a schedule for their bus system. Eil is right the Stinger is always late. This is a great idea.
