    Hi This is a really nice use of beacons. How did you get the beacons to know which bus route it is on so it can tell the app user?


    • Doru Supeala says:

      Hello Andrew and thanks for your question. In the CMS, each beacon is associated to a bus and each bus is associated to a line of transport. When the bus is changing the line of transport, the dispatcher is updating this information in the CMS, with just a few clicks. The information is immediately updated for all mobile devices using the app.

    Hi, it is very useful for the visually-impaired people navigates independently. How will the notifications and buzzer sound signals automatically stop when the user goes on the bus ?

    • Doru Supeala says:

      Hello Leona, thanks for your visit and your very good question.
      The buzzer emits a standard set of three Beep signals, so this is precisely limited and will not repeat. The notification delivered to a specific mobile user will not be repeated after the delivery, for all users situated in the proximity of the same beacon. So, if the user goes in the bus, he will be in the proximity of that beacon, he will not be targeted with new notifications, because the system knows that he has received already that notification.
      If you need more information, please contact us via e-mail, or on our chat module on the website.
