Abstract

This paper presents a bus detection system using RFID technology that aims to ease the traveling and movement of blind people. The proposed system consists of two detection subsystems; one on the buses and the other on the bus stations, database system and a website. In the bus detection subsystem, the nearby stations will be easily detected and then announced through a voice message inside the bus. Moreover, any existing blind person in the surrounding area of the station will be de-tected by the bus subsystem to alert the bus driver about the number of blind persons. In the bus station subsystem, the com-ing buses will be detected and then announced in the station in order to alert the blind people. A complete system prototype has been constructed and tested to validate the proposed system. The results show that the system performance is promising in terms of system functionality, safety, and cost.
