Topic: *NEW*: App for Public Transport

Dear partners!

We are glad to introduce you to a new app of Wialon product line, which is to be released in a couple of months. This app is a special solution for public transport and aimed at companies dealing with passenger transportation.

With the app, you'll be able to:

• plan rides/trips to be fulfilled each day
• control vehicle's presence on the route
• get notifications about route deflection and stop skipping
• view in real-time manner how well vehicles stick to the schedule, see their delay and hurry
• detect concentration of vehicles at one place
• generate reports upon fulfilled rides/trips
• etc.

First of all, a base of stops should be created in the app. The stops could be created either manually or imported from KML.

https://content.screencast.com/users/KaterinaAlek/folders/Snagit/media/dd77f151-b17a-40e0-ac39-b6abc93cd891/05.15.2017-17.42.png

Then, you assemble routes from those stops. The best way to move from one stop to another is suggested by the app, however, you can edit this line according to your preferences.

https://content.screencast.com/users/KaterinaAlek/folders/Snagit/media/3f8deeff-8ef4-4de1-a7cb-78f98843c7b3/05.15.2017-17.47.png

For each route, a timetable should be created. That is a set of schedules, according to which, vehicles are supposed to visit stops of this route. A route can have hundreds of such schedules.

https://content.screencast.com/users/KaterinaAlek/folders/Snagit/media/f2b3dc08-9d55-4af0-99ee-b25252c9d7bb/05.15.2017-17.49.png

Pending rides can be observed in a special panel, where you can check if everything is configured properly and also check if correct units are assigned to each ride. Units can be assigned to rides either automatically (if they are set in schedule's properties) or manually by a dispatcher.
   
https://content.screencast.com/users/KaterinaAlek/folders/Snagit/media/5e1cd48a-ec6b-4166-8ed5-795870d4c74c/05.15.2017-18.17.png

There are several interfaces to perform real-time online tracking of the routes. A special scale can show you all units on a particular route, their progress, current location, information about their attitude to the schedule — yellow plates for those who are in a hurry, red plates for vehicles with delay.

https://content.screencast.com/users/KaterinaAlek/folders/Snagit/media/31595ab8-1e77-40e5-be86-6f6ea88cc91a/05.15.2017-18.08.png

Alternatively, similar thing can be shown on the map — vehicle markers move in real-time there.

Notifications as well as reports will be also provided in the system. Besides, access to the system can be organized in a smart way — giving different users different privileges, visible elements, and allowed interfaces/panels to visit.
   
Any Wialon Hosting account can be integrated with the app. Then, access is given to users who 'live' in this account (individually). Units (vehicles) and their data is drawn from Wialon Hosting, too. In all other aspects, the app has its 'independent life'.

Looking forward to your comments and proposals!

Re: *NEW*: App for Public Transport

Dear Gurtam Team

I just back from a trip and checking forum. I really surprised by this new application and what you all do in Gurtam!
Such an application is very interested for me.
Just one question, is it possible to use it in WL or not?  Please do it as a way to be available from WL as General transportation is a part of government mostly and such  customers insist on their DC and local installation.

*NEW*: App for Public Transport

Re: *NEW*: App for Public Transport

Regarding the name as you have another application called Logistics i think a name containing Trans (stands for Transportation) would be convenient.

*NEW*: App for Public Transport

Re: *NEW*: App for Public Transport

Hamed,

"Trans" could be a very precise part of the name but can raise questions as being "too progressive" wink
Although "wiaTrans" sounds nice to the ear.

Re: *NEW*: App for Public Transport

Dear Hamed,

Thank you for your suggestions and your interest in our new product! It's nice to know that wPass is going to have a chance in your region!

Concerning integration with Wialon Local, it will become possible only next year, in WL-1804 or something. However, I think that it gives you more time to prepare your customers and make a good campaign, and also learn all functionality and maybe even suggest some improvements as I know you surely would wink

Re: *NEW*: App for Public Transport

alek, do you have any plan to add ETA to this new application? There is no ETA function in whole Wialon system and this function is very useful (specially for wPass).
Regarding WL integration i can't understand what is the problem with integrating some applications with it. I guess most data transactions between applications and Wialon is done via Remote API and most parts of API is same for WH and WL. May you explain the reason of delayed integration of Logistics or this new application with WL?

Re: *NEW*: App for Public Transport

Alek,

Looks good! The Gurtam team are doing great things!

We have are working with a few small bus companies, they average about 20 buses each, this could prove quite good for them.

I agree with smal "Trans" in the name would be more instantly identifiable maybe.If we had to pick one from above consensus is ByBus or BusTA....

Looking forward to having a review/play of this app.

Re: *NEW*: App for Public Transport

We "floated" this concept with small bus company for their thoughts.

This is one of 3 regional bus companies we are working with, city bus services for us use government systems. This may provide us an advantage for non government controlled ones.

They showed very keen interest - although they are not yet a customer, but will be in the coming weeks.

Re: *NEW*: App for Public Transport

Had some feedback from a couple potential clients with suggestion of TransConnect or TCon/TransCon....

They don't just have buses they also have ferries, so thought it might better to be a bit more broad with the name rather than just bus focused. smile

Will some of these enhancements flow through to the standard route functionality? Some of the visualizations are needed for basic route monitoring as well particularly the on map variance tracking for critical rounds.

Re: *NEW*: App for Public Transport

I just want to give you my feeling about this app which seems fine but also difficult to sale without a complete hardware solution including  Display pannel inside the bus for customer information. My experience is coming from a project with  a big French town company Bus may be 500 to 800  bus. Now they have a solution with a big french company the name is Engie Ineo  see the link https://www.engie-ineo.fr/systrans .When this type of company will have some deal with the main town in France and outside France it could be very difficult to compete with them even in small town. So my opinion is that we need a compete solution with hardware manufacturer for have a good chance to sell Wialon in Public transportation. I donot believe that this product could interest private transportation company but may be i am not right .

*NEW*: App for Public Transport

Re: *NEW*: App for Public Transport

GE, thank you for your feedback! And also for the link to Engie Ineo project.

Our new product is aimed both at state and private companies. But we believe that for the time being, our main customers will be transportation companies in small and medium towns, mainly private companies I think. In the end, it all depends on the region of the world: while in Europe this area is mostly equipped with some solutions, in other parts of the world there are still a lot of potential customers. And even in Europe, I believe, our new app may be rather competitive, at least in the terms of its cost (you pay only for the units, software is free).

And one more remark about "all inclusive" solution. We are software developers, and we provide software. You add hardware of your choice to this equation — and you sell it as "all inclusive" solution. wink

Alek ,

This is going to be a most useful app for me and my customers! I have been thinking about similar application for long time and now I have chance to market it! can't wait for it. Thank you.

About the name for this app, How about BusTime ? If not suitable, please wait, I am going to come up with some new idea for your app and then decide the name. Name is very important, this app is to big not to have well thought name and more functionality.

Actually this is just display, nothing impossible to implement such solution if you really need it for customer. You need:
- small PC-board, like raspberry (~$30)
- connect it to monitor like on the picture (~$70)
- do all the installations and wrap it beautiful in the bus (~$200)
+ develop software that run on linux-board, connect to Wialon via API and render this page via HTML (one time fee)

So, $300 or let say up to $600(EU price) per bus and you have such solution for your customer.

To have Display panel inside and outside of the Bus, use add-on modules to many good existing tracking devices on the market. I am not very technically minded but RS232 or similar is all you need on tracker unit. This will drive the display units. These units can be bought off the self. This LED display units can be bought with:
(1) Display unit alone
(2) Display + Sound module (Bus stop announcement) you can call it “Talking Bus!”
(3) It is also possible to have tracker of your choice to be the part of outside LED panel. This is easy solution, as installation of tracker; GPS antenna and outside LED panel are all in one unit.

Hello Shall
your solution is very good on technical point of view , but for company  like us ( without Soft engineer ) i was thinking that if it was possible to have few manufacturer of GPS Device  able to include a part of your proposal like connexion on Wialon API  and deliver information on our own Display . In this case ,it could be easier to propose a complete solution to the customer and also a lot of customer doesn't like to pay two Sim card on the same véhicule.

Dear Alek
Thanks you for your answer i agree that in Europe the market could be the small town and I understand that you target is the word !. I know that you are software développer and that you count on partenaires for the hardware and sell .So I would not say that we need an all inclusive solution from Gurtam but i would to know if you have some hardware partner asGPS manufacturer or similar company  already involved in this project at the beginning. Because for selling this type of project in Europe as Telematic compagnie (without soft engineer)  we need to find some good  brick for sell our inclusive solution. The display by itself is not a problem but the connection between your App and the Display is not so easy and also as we need a GPS device in the first place it seems logic to imagine a part of the solution with it.

Re: *NEW*: App for Public Transport

We have some requests from customers looked for such application. I tried to summarize their requirements and combined them in my mind with what i know from whole Wialon system. Here is the result:

Web Application
-    Ability to register Bus Company details (containing custom fields) and binding buses to each company
-     Rating sub-system for each bus ach whole company based on company’s buses function in system considering criteria like number of completed routes per day, on-time arrival and departures, ECO-Driving etc. (violations and penalties may be defined like what we experience in ECO-Driving in Wialon)
-    Fetching unit’s data like Maintenance, Profile, Fuel Consumption, Custom Fields and sensors from Wialon
-    Defining stations detailed information including name, code, location (Lat & Long), type, address, station custom icon and photo, radius, custom fields etc.
-    Defining routes detailed information including name, type, code, stations and their sequence, mileage, width, custom fields etc.
-    Defining terminals detailed information including name, code, location (Lat & Long), type, address, terminal custom icon and photo, radius, custom fields etc.
-    Ability to use stations in more than one route
-    Ability to use stations in one or both route direction (A-B or B-A)
-    An ability to detect route direction (A-B or B-A) based on visited stations sequence
-    Total mileage and in-route mileage report for each bus and each company’s fleet
-    Monitoring and searching fleets by bus, route, region, online/offline, bound driver etc.
-    Pop-up detailed information for each bus on map including bound route information, number of completed routes and other parameters like Wialon’s pop-up
-    Reporting bus door status and count (including locations)
-    Notification and reports on bus schedule violations, crossing station without stop, number of passengers between two stations, time between bus departure from parking to arrival to route start point, time between bus departure from route finish point to route re-start point etc.
-    Full integration with Wialon Notifications and Reports modules
-    Smart analyzing of trips duration between stations and using it for ETA in system
-    Simplified customizable panel/application (like Sensolator) for display bus, ETA, previous/next bus in route, notices etc. in stations monitors

Passengers smartphone application:
-    List of routes, stations and each route stations and terminals.
-    Next bus ETA in selected station
-    Estimated trip time between selected stations

Re: *NEW*: App for Public Transport

Excellent addition with real potential for us.  Looking forward to the release.  I agree with several of the comments concerning ETA's and ability to share real time status against schedule with riders. API to agencies customer facing application is common requirement.

Re: *NEW*: App for Public Transport

Hi Gurtam Team,

Thank for releasing the beta NimBus. It is a good effort. Here is my comment.

1. NimBus should allow importing of routes (not only bus stops) from kml/kmz. This allows easier migration from our existing system as we already have all the info/data.

2.Since we defined the buffer for the bus stop, e.g 50 meters, that bus stop is supposed to be good for both ways (inbound and outbound trips). The problem that I have with the beta is that the auto-created route seems to follow GIS routing. If the bus stop lat/long is on the other side of the street, the route will make necessary turn-by-turn navigation to get to the point. In my opinion, bus stops and routes shall be independent. This way, we can control the route easily.

4. NimBus should add the capability to set additional parameters in order to speed up the creation of schedule:-
- First Bus Service e.g 06:00
- Last Bus Service e.g 22:00
- Service Interval e.g 00:30
Then the schedule will be tabulated according to the selected pattern.

4. Please add a custom field for us to display data from our preferred Automatic Passenger Counting (APC) System. The APC data should be displayed in the monitoring panel within the line view.

Cheers!

If gurtam could provide the inclusive solution for the those kind of system, that would be good for like us (without software engineer).

Well, we are using Passenger module in School bus tracking and I think integrating both modules (Nimbus and Passenger) can make a great app for schools to track students, drivers and buses in a single app. Nimbus can be used to track the behavior of each driver and also the bus, Passenger module to track the students.

+ Can we see driver's name for assigned vehicles ?
+ Can we send a notification to driver (Mobile app or / Buzzer fixed to the HW device) in case of delay / outrunning , no show at  stop etc ?

+ In reports, can we see
- arrival time at each stop
- Wait time at each stop

These were some suggestions we came up during our initial trial.Will post our experience and features that we think would be useful .

Thank you

Re: *NEW*: App for Public Transport

Hi

What ysv asked as Passenger module integration is same as what we discussed in Minsk to report how many passenger uses each Bus, Stations and Routes. Such a graphical report will help any bus company to manage, redefine and optimize stations and routes and also schedule for each routes in different times of day and different days of week. Idea is clear and i ask partners to share their opinions here to improve and finalize it.

P.S.
tata, you should remember what we discussed about graphical reports based on numbers of passengers on map.

Re: *NEW*: App for Public Transport

Hello Alec,
Please count me in. I have a bus company as a customer and is looking for something like this.

Is there something for the passenger to see where the bus is and how long it will be at their bus stop?

I can beta test as the customer is already live and has several buses on specific routes.

Kind Regards
Glenn

Re: *NEW*: App for Public Transport

Hello Alek,

I have two big rail companies who would love this for their rail network.

I can see a number of uses for it, not only buses.

I can beta test as well for trains as we have the customer already.

We should give it a nice generic name.

Regards Glenn

Re: *NEW*: App for Public Transport

You can find more information in our blog https://weblog.gurtam.com/2017/09/nimbus/ and in the documentation https://docs.wialon.com/en/hosting/nimbus/nimbus

alek, Please add Persian calendar to it ASAP.
And may you tell us which parameters we should pass to nimbus (from CMS) to open the application without authorization from Wialon itself.

Re: *NEW*: App for Public Transport

Thank you Alek,
Maybe I am being overworked, I cannot find where to activate it for one on my dealer activated accounts.?

Please can someone point me in the right direction.

Many thanks

Re: *NEW*: App for Public Transport

hhamedk, opening NimBus from Wialon Hosting without additional authorization is not possible, because the app uses different technologies. However, if you type your login and password on nimbus.wialon.com once and let your browser remember them, then next time you will be forwarded to NimBus without any delay.

Re: *NEW*: App for Public Transport

glenn.pearson, just go to nimbus.wialon.com using your top user credentials and activate a "depot" for a particular account which needs NimBus service (presumably, one of your client's accounts). Then click on the activated depot to go to its administration settings and give access to users who are supposed to use this depot. Then any of those users can go to nimbus.wialon.com using their logins and passwords and create content there (stops, routes, etc.).

alek, when new languages will be ready for NimBus in translation system? When you will release new languages for?

Re: *NEW*: App for Public Transport

Hello hhamedk,

You need to write to our support (support@gurtam.com). They will give you the right to "translation tool".
When you have access to "translation tool", you can add a new language yourself.

Re: *NEW*: App for Public Transport

Hello.  I noticed the Nimbus app is geared towards owners, managers and dispatchers primarily.  In other words it's more of an operation tool really.  Any thoughts given to making it useful for the passengers as well?  What  I mean by this is that it would be great to put up an LED display at different stops or terminals for the passengers so they can see where the buses are in relation to the stop or terminal where the passengers currently are.  This would help inform the passenger how close or far the next bus is for them.

Showing the currently online route that covers their stop isn't too helpful also because there are no labels for each stop, just stop numbers so the passenger isn't too sure which stop the bus is close to.  Perhaps a stop name besides just the stop number would be helpful?  Also, perhaps the current address or location of the bus/es on the screen would help inform the passenger further.

Even more helpful would be perhaps ETA info for each bus for the next stop, taking into consideration the current traffic conditions.

What do you think?

Re: *NEW*: App for Public Transport

Hello jonasf_ph ,

Thank you very much for your feedback.

it would be great to put up an LED display at different stops or terminals for the passengers

We are working on API that will be released in the upcoming days. We hope that using API you will be able to create that you need.

Showing the currently online route that covers their stop isn't too helpful also because there are no labels for each stop, just stop numbers

Оnline route has a tooltip with the name stop and description.

Even more helpful would be perhaps ETA info for each bus for the next stop

We are considering this option now and gathering ideas from our partners, but not yet working on it.
