Paterlini, B., Vaz, R., Hodel, K., Neto, P. et al., "The More Comprehensive Use of Embedded Technology for Quality Improvement of the National Public Transportation System," SAE Technical Paper 2015-36-0357, 2015, doi:10.4271/2015-36-0357.
The several problems and bottlenecks faced users public transport users in big cities are a common knowledge. Among them agencies responsible for public transport recognize the lack of centralized control, the under and over supply, the lack of information to users and the non-compliance of scheduled trips. In order to work identified problems improving cities like Recife and São Paulo are testing systems named as embedded technology that integrate the use of GPS, cameras, centralized monitoring among others, retarding a deeper coverage compared to systems previously used. The main objectives are the comfort and safety increase of users and the freight logistics improvement.This paper presents the technologies being tested in Brazil through successful models applied in countries as Spain and Colombia, as well as the scope of bids and proposals for improvement of public transport.
