Choose the stage of Innovation you’ve submitted::

Choose the stage of Innovation you’ve submitted: Idea: It is at a nascent stage where it is a thought with substantial research material and a design to help provide better transport services. Idea Prototype Established Scaling

The Innovation:

The Innovation Summary of the innovation needs to cover the following titles: Chosen industry : Public Services Chosen technologies: Mobility and Analytics Objective : Online tracking of buses and frequency control. Approach : Use of automatic machine to count for number of passengers waiting for a particular bus number at every bus stand and responses would be analyzed at control centre. Describe the innovation developed : For each ticket only one response will be recorded as first the machine will read the ticket number/ bar code. This will be immediately analyzed and transferred to the central control room. Where accordingly the bus frequency would be handled. At the same time GPS fitted on all the buses would help passengers to locate its current position and find approximate time it will take to reach their stop. Maximum Points: 10

Compelling need for the innovation:

Compelling need for the innovation As we know about the advancement and development in the transport system we are still not able to provide our best services to public. As we know there is different requirement of bus at each route. Which also changes from time to time. Still our transport corporation is not able to provide services as per requirement as they don't have appropriate method’s or approach to regulate our bus service. Unnecessary waiting for buses wastes a lot of time of passengers. This also urges them to avoid public transport and use their private transports to travel which in turn increases the carbon footprint. Maximum Points: 20


Impact If this Idea is implemented and worked on carefully will help out in many ways :- This will help in saving time of people who unnecessarily wait for buses for long time. As traffic will be controlled to a much greater extent by reducing the buses on routes which are not much required at that time. Also transport department may know easily about their daily passengers and on which routes the demand for buses are more. By this they can also easily make out new routes required. And if not much, little amount of natural resources will also be saved and can be utilized appropriately. Passengers only with valid tickets may be able to provide their response. This will reduce the misuse of the machines. The ease of transportation the idea provides will be the most important factor which will result in its sustenance and further development.   Maximum Points: 30


Implementation This may require a huge investment in installing and surveillance of the automatic counting machine (ACM) at each bus stand in the city but not much of time. Fitting of GPS equipments in all the buses. But will require quite some time to analyze properly the functioning and bus traffic at each route. And we will also require a proper experienced and skilled workers for control and maintenance of this project. We will also have to make the passengers aware of the machine and its benefit to them so that they come ahead and use these for their benefits and ease. Maximum Points: 50

The Competitive Advantage:

The Competitive Advantage The competitive advantage of this Idea would be for a developing country like ours to show the rest of the world the level up to which we have used the modern technology in our daily lives. I received the inspiration for this idea when I myself was waiting for the bus and many other people. But we had no option other than just wait for it daily and waste our precious time. I am not pursuing any kind of patent for my idea yet. Its just meant for our country’s growth. Maximum Points: 30
