Visually impaired and blind people (VIBP) face great difficulty finding public transport and bus stops due to their visual impairments. Over the past decade, several support systems have been prototyped and developed to address this problem. However, most of these are wearable prototypes that turn out to be grueling for them. In this project, we propose an AI-powered real-time bus navigation system that provides information about buses arriving at bus stops. The buses will be tracked using the GPS of the mobile phone installed with the driver-side application. The application will take audio input for the source and destination for the journey and provide the available buses from the nearest location of the user on that route as audio output. It will provide the ETA and location of the target bus. This app will coordinate with the driver’s app and live notifications will be given to the driver for any visually impaired passenger.
Key words: VIBP / AI voice assistant / real-time bus tracking / GPS / Google Maps
