The Bus Arrival Time Service Based on Dynamic Traffic Information
The bus arrival time (BAT) service is a key service to improve public transport attractiveness by providing users with real-time bus arrival information which can help them to arrange their bus travel schedule intelligently. Thus the technique of real-time bus arrival prediction has become a research hotspot in the community of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) nowadays. In this paper, a novel model on bus arrival time prediction is proposed. The model proposes a complete set of programs to solve BAT prediction for large-scale real-time traffic information calculating. It adopts an effective algorithm calculating vehicle’s driving direction real-timely. BAT is calculated based on dynamic traffic information and visual prediction is a way to complement when GPS information is not arrived as expected. Experimental results indicate that the model has considerable efficiency in accuracy (over 85.1%) and computational speed (max 5000 GPS records per second).
