Track Buses in Real Time with SBU Smart Transit

SBU Smart Transit is comprised of multiple components, including wireless routers, automated passenger counters and card-reader technology, which automatically tallies passenger ridership. This information will be used to enhance services by pinpointing peak times of operation and usage patterns. A full software suite including a real-time web portal and mobile browser site was also created to aid both riders and transportation management. “By building the project in house, students gained invaluable experience in constructing a real-world system,” said Wong.
