Bus Information System For Visually Impaired Passengers
Navigation for a visually impaired person is very complex , especially when they walk down in street
and also navigate to distant places by public transport system. This paper proposes an android mobile application
that gives information about buses, bus numbers as well as the bus destination point as voice messages for blind
passengers . Each bus will be provided with an unique RFID tags and RFID readers will be fixed in every bus stop.
The RFID reader , reads the Tag’s ID from the bus and then sends this information through a Bluetooth channel to
the mobile phones . The ID string and the bus information stored in the data base are processed and then an audio
output is produced in the mobile phone .While passing through each bus stop the visually impaired person will get the
specified bus station information through the RFID reader.
