ABSTRACT OF THE PROJECT
Wireless sensor networks have the potential to provide unprecedented remote
monitoring capabilities that can benefit applications such as industrial control,
environmental monitoring, and defense. Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is one of
the most exciting technologies that revolutionize the working practices by increasing
efficiencies, and improving profitability. It is often presented as a replacement for today’s
barcodes, but the technology has much greater possibilities, such as individual serial
numbers for each item, and the possibility to read these numbers at a distance of several
metres. They are simpler to deploy than wired solutions and these networks will enable
improved understanding of processes and environments through continual monitoring of
a larger set of parameters.
In this project the evolution of wireless sensor networks will be presented, using
RFID techniques with examples of implementations in vehicle tracking and ticketing
system (VTTS) designed for bus passengers in the college bus.
