In today’s environment when everything is Travel Bus information is a vital component of many intelligent transportation systems (ITS) applications. In recent years, the number of vehicles in India has increased tremendously, leading to severe traffic congestion and pollution in urban areas, particularly during peak periods. A desirable strategy to deal with such issues is to shift more people from personal vehicles to public transport by providing better service (comfort, convenience and so on).
The scope of this proposed system is to use speech recognition system for user selected destination entry, and voice module for making announcements about the arrival details. The performance of the proposed system is found to be promising and expected to be valuable in the development of advanced public transportation systems (APTS) in India.
The main advantage of this device is to provide bus alerting system for easy navigation i.e. the user gets the voices which pronounce the bus details along with destination alerts. The system also supports with another protection feature for blind, when any sudden accidents occur which is detected using MEMS accelerometer sensor and sends location global positioning system based alerts to the predefined concern person in the form of SMS messages.
As Speech is the primary and most convenient means of communication between humans it aims to provide a review based on the design of a new voice based alerting system for the blind based on Speech recognition system and voice circuit for voice based announcements.
