This dissertation shows about the project details in developing a Bus Tracking System (BTS) by predicting the time arrival of a bus using simulation data. The main elements in this report consist of introduction, literature review, methodology and results and discussion. The project is developed by using research activities, findings analysis and developing prototype. All the basic elements in the system such as Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL) System, Global Positioning System (GPS) and the Short Messaging Services (SMS) Server have been analyzed. Based on the research, these elements are discussed further to relate the usage with the system. This project is developed based on the advancement of Information Technology (IT) system today that has enabled people to have an intelligent transport system which assists them in traveling. Travel Information System (TIS) has been used widely in certain countries such as Singapore and United States of America (Stephanie Yap, 2003). Basically, the system works by locating and tracking any transportation using GPS technology installed in that transport. By collecting all the dataneeded such as speed and location, an algorithm can be developed to predict when the transport will reach a certain checkpoint. The combination usage of the algorithm, AVL, GPS and SMS server, the information regarding the time arrival of the transport can easily being retrieve by users. In this project, an algorithm will be developed to predict the amount of time needed for the incoming public bus to arrive, based on the current location of the bus and the current time. Public bus users, especially students in UTP will be able to know when the bus is coming by using their cell phones. The usage will allowthem to access the system that manipulates this algorithm. The scope of the project includes developing an algorithm, the research and analysis of GPS and the use of SMS. Basically, the methodology that has been chosen is the combination of waterfall and spiral methodology. The development of the BTS will hopefully help to increase bus ridership, improve accuracy, timeliness and availability of public buses at UTP.
