In recent days, parents are discomfit about their school going children as kidnapping cases of students has been increasing from day-to-day. It is very important for every school to have an incorruptible and reliable transport service to make sure that the students are safeguarded. Nowadays students wait for a longer time for their school bus arrival standing near roads which is unsafe for them. Even though there are some of the technologies to ensure the safety of students, they were not able to provide abundant information to parents. Without their notice, they might exit at wrong stops. To reduce parent’s uneasiness about their school going children, this project presents the evolution of a school bus monitoring system which provides information about location, speed and bus arrival prediction time. It also identifies student’s location within the school campus. This is done through the technology – (IoT) Internet of Things. Tracking of school bus is done by GPS (Global Positioning System) technology. The system alerts parents by notifying them. This is achieved through GSM (Global System for Mobile applications). RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) identifies unique id given to each individual. The bus track system provides solution for tracking school bus on smart phones. Also an algorithm is implemented to calculate the arrival time of the bus in addition to tracking. The information can be accessed by parents through mobile application and they can continuously monitor their child. © 2020, Springer Nature Switzerland AG.
