Abstract: Public Transportation is the major means of Bus among people. A recent survey by the National Sample Survey Organization says that about 62-66% of people use the bus as their mode of transport. Public Bus tracking system aims at providing the instant status of the bus to the users via an automated system. This paper describes a design of IoT enabled real time bus tracking system. In this work a bus tracking mobile phone app is developed, using that people can exactly locate the bus status and time to bus arrival at bus-stop. This work uses high frequency RFID tags at buses and RFID receivers at bus-stops and with NodeMCU real time RIFD tagging (bus running) information is collected and uploaded on cloud. Users can access the bus running and status from cloud on mobile app in real time.
