Abstract
Phone-based applications have become an essential aspect of our daily lives. In our way of life, we travel to numerous places each day. Many travelers are using maps to discover their desired places with the assistance of smartphones. In Bangladesh, there are so numerous places where travelers may not discover bus stops and desire buses uncommonly when they visit a new area. That's why they utilize maps, but in Bangladesh, there's no included feature in existing maps where travelers can discover the right bus and bus stops. The proposed phone-based application called “POTHIK” tries to solve this problem. This project aims to develop a Phone-based application with a live tracking facility to locate nearby bus stops and nearest buses considering two significant variables: nearby bus stops and live bus tracking facility. With the help of this system, users can find their nearest bus stops and can see the distance of the nearest bus for their required route. This application needs to access mobile phone sensors and a cloud server to implement the features. The proposed solution is easy and low-cost compared to the embedded system-based approach.
