Public transport networks (PTNs) are difficult to use when the user is unfamiliar with the area they are traveling to. This is true for both infrequent users (including visitors) and regular users who need to travel to areas with which they are not acquainted. In these situations, adequate on-trip navigation information can substantially ease the use of public transportation and be the driving factor in motivating travellers to prefer it over other modes of transportation. However, estimating the localization of a user is not trivial, although it is critical for providing relevant information. I assess relevant design issues for a modular cost-efficient user-friendly on-trip Navigation service that uses position sensors. By helping travellers move from single occupancy vehicles to public transportation systems, communities can reduce traffic congestion as well as its environmental impact. Here, I describe our efforts to increase the satisfaction of current public transportation users and help motivate more people to ride. I can help existing riders and encourage new riders by enhancing the usability of public transportation through good transit traveller information systems. The motivation for every location-based information system is: “To assist with the exact information, at right place in real time with personalized setup and location sensitiveness”. LOCATION-BASED services are increasingly important for modern mobile devices such as the Smartphone. An important feature of a modern mobile device is that it can position itself. Not only for use on the device but also for remote applications that require tracking of the device. Furthermore, tracking has to robustly deliver position updates when faced with changing conditions such as delays due to positioning and communication, and changing positioning accuracy. The realized system tracks pedestrian targets equipped with GPS-enabled devices. The face, an important part of the body, conveys a lot of information. When a driver is in a state of fatigue, the facial expressions, e.g., the frequency of blinking, are different from those in the normal state. In this project, we propose a system called DriCare, which detects the drivers' fatigue status, such as blinking, and duration of eye closure, using video images, without equipping their bodies with devices. Owing to the shortcomings of previous algorithms, we introduce a new face-tracking algorithm to improve the tracking accuracy. Further, we designed a new detection method for facial regions based on 68 key points. Then we use these facial regions to evaluate the drivers' state. By combining the features of the eyes and mouth, DriCare can alert the driver using a fatigue warning.
