With the conception of smart city transmuting cities into digital societies, making the life of its citizens easy in every facet,Intelligent Public Transport Systems ( IPTS) becomes the indispensable component among all. Leveraging citizens with an Intelligent Public Transport Systems can save their time and make the public transport system even smarter. Like it or not people now days like to travel and most of them like to travel by using public transportation because they can save a lot of energy and also easy to manage time.
IPTS are a subsystem of Intelligent Transport System (ITS) that can control public transport network to provide information, network operating condition and maintain their performance and provide users (passengers) with up-to-date information about trips vehicle and network operation conditions. Intelligent transport system are also called Intelligent public transportation system (IPTS). This IPTS system can be include in five main categories:
- Automatic Vehicle Location System (AVLS) that can provided real time information about vehicle such as location, current speed, bad weather and accident.
- Traveler Information System (TIS) provided passengers real-time information about such as scheduled transport arrival or departure.
- Automatic Passenger Counter (APC) can count on-board passengers and those waiting for vehicles at stop stations.
- Geographic Information System (GIS) to design implementation of new routes and shuttles.
- Decision Support System (DSS) to assist in controlling the transport network.
So no double that with this system right now are better compare to old system because the Intelligent Public Transport System can gives regular information to the daily commuters about public transportation, timings, seat availability, the current location of the vehicle, time taken to reach a particular destination, next location of the vehicle and the density of passengers inside the vehicle.
