    Conclusion :
    La solution que nous avons livrée à notre entreprise partenaire montre que le prototype de bus génère des informations qui peuvent être traitées et affichées aux passagers. De plus, cette solution est basée sur des protocoles standards et est adaptée à l’environnement EBSF. Cela signifie qu’elle pourra être utilisée pour promouvoir ce projet européen et qu’il est envisageable que cela conduise à la réalisation et la commercialisation d’une application à destination des usagers, ce qui sera une valeur ajoutée pour cette nouvelle génération de transport public.

    Partner Company : Veolia Environnement Recherche et Innovation (VERI)

    Objective :
    Within the framework of this major project, VERI asked our team to develop a user oriented application dedicated to mobile targets that would enhance user’s journey experience. With the increasing quantity of various mobile targets and applications in our daily life, it seems relevant to devise such a solution.

    Our application is also to be based on the standard communication protocols embedded in the bus prototype. This way, it will be a universal solution that may be widely distributed, while concurrent applications are dedicated to specific context or environment.

    Solution :
    In the Veolia EBSF testbench environment, we developed an Android application that access to various services from the embedded network of a simulated bus prototype. Our system is composed of 3 autonomous abstraction layers. The first layer is responsible of the communication with the bus network. It subscribes and access to the relevant services from which can be found information we share to the passenger. The second layer then parses the content of the services. These data are stored in a model. Finally, the highest level, which is a graphical user interface (GUI) provide information taken from our model.

    Results :
    Finally, we devised a functional prototype which subscribes to various services available on the embedded network. The information we display after parsing process fit with the actual data. The real time behavior is well managed and provides an reliable flow of values. However, we were not able to integrate this solution onto an android tablet, despite the fact that our graphical interface is working as well as the two lowest layers.

    Conclusion :
    This solution we delivered to our partner company shows that the bus system provides information which can be managed and displayed to the passengers. Moreover, this solution is based on standard protocols and is adapted to the EBSF environment. It means it could be used to promote this European project and may lead to an official passenger oriented application which would be an added value for this new generation of public transportation system.
