Brighter Future Arriving on Indian Buses

This article will discuss how the Indian state of Karnataka is poised to launch the next stage of a major rollout of intelligent transportation system (ITS) technology on its bus network, which follows the August 2012 go-live of an award-wining passenger information system. The Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) plans to equip 2,000 of its 8,000-strong fleet of buses with video cameras, upgraded electronic ticketing and fuel consumption monitoring systems. The cameras are not just being installed for passenger safety. The cameras will give live feeds on the number of seats available and alert of any problems. The cameras will also help traffic engineers manage the buses better and plug revenue leakages. The fuel consumption monitoring feature will enable the engineers to assess driver behavior.
