Better means of transport By Claudia Carolina Pérez Ramírez We live in a world where the increase of cars in the streets has caused traffic to increase more and more, and this we can notice at the "peak hour" in most and even all cities. A clear example is Mexico City. "Due to traffic problems, motorists in Mexico City take 66% more to reach their destination, compared to the time it would take them to cover the same distance in ideal traffic conditions, the study said Tuesday February 21 and with data collected throughout 2016. " Our sources of Political Animal mention us in an article published the 21 of February of this year. Different pollution measures have been attempted to implement and in which the large number of cars is one of the culprits, but some have really not been established with regard to the decline in car use. And it is from this point of view that I want to comment on what my contribution is with the better world by seeing it from public transport and the benefits that would be had it possible to have a more effective means of transport. I am a person who uses public transport every day in Mexico, and I can safely say that some of the reasons why it is not used is because it takes longer in the routes, it can take up to an hour to pass, which causes that it arrives late to our destinations and even that by the full the buses do not rise and you have to wait again more time to see that the next bus passes or that you have to use another means of transport different from what was planned . So how could you improve public transportation? Just as Uber implemented a system in which when you ask the service you realize how long it takes to arrive, my idea would be that public transport would handle this same system, but it would be as follows: - This is a mobile application. -To be able to see in a menu the different routes of the city where you are (being able to use for all the cities, states and even countries, this would also help to someone who is foreign, since it would know the routes that exist in the place where find) -When clicking on any of the routes you can see a map of the different places where you pass, and even depending on your location you can know which routes are the ones that can leave you there and if you need to take more than one, or the one that gets you closer. -To see on a map the buses of route when they are moving of the route that you chose and even so you can know how long it will take to go to the stop where you are, to see the different stops that you have and the approximate time in which you will be in that place. -Click to one of the buses that appear to have information on how many passengers are on the route and you can know if it is full or if there is space, if there are seats available or if you were standing. -The people who drive public transport what they would do is activate that the route is already in motion when they leave the central of their route, from there will be the count of how late to reach the different passages taking into account also the traffic and the number of people occupying the route. All this will help you to know the time in which you are most occupied and to be able to observe different options that help you to arrive at your destination without problems being able to know in advance that perhaps the route that you were going to take is full and that you know that you prevent the one who does not go to climb to be able or wait for another one or to know the approximate time in which the next one will happen. Even the owners of the routes would know the number of people they are waiting for and this information will serve to prevent them from the amount of demand that will be and to be able to organize with the amount of routes that will be available to the people that await them. All this would help people choose to use public transport to use their cars, even if it is on some days of the week and this would cause levels of traffic and even pollution to decrease, since public transport can be used by 50 people, taking into account this information, if those 50 people used their car would increase traffic and the contamination of those 50 cars affect even more in our lives. That is why implementing this system to help improve transportation is a reliable solution that can be used not only in Mexico, but in different parts of the world. Thank you.

Location context has become increasingly important for applications that capture real-world data, including those in the logistics and navigation markets. Whether tracking location of a delivery truck or providing turn-by-turn navigation, the need for a seamless way to accurately and intelligently identify the location and where their data was captured is growing. Fortunately, advancements in precise location-based services (LBS) technology are making it possible to provide mobile carriers, application developers and enterprises with a one-stop shop services platform for building or enhancing cloud-based, embedded and hybrid LBS applications, especially in IoT deployments. The platform may incorporate multiple modular technology suites, including indoor and outdoor positioning, geo-fencing, location fraud detection, maps, search, routing, navigation, real-time messaging, and analytics. Here is how the power of connected-location technologies might play out when a consumer or commercial delivery driver is in a retail store or high-rise office location: • The driver searches for their destination on a desktop, mobile or in the vehicle. All are sync’d seamlessly with a highly advanced cloud navigation platform. • Navigation is started to the destination with the vehicle’s navigation system. The platform routing engine alerts the driver to the fact that their final destination does not have parking immediately in front, and routes them to the nearest parking garage instead. • As the vehicle nears the parking garage, the mapping engine queries the CCS and loads the indoor map data for the parking garage, along with the real-time data for empty spots. The route is updated to guide the vehicle to the empty parking spot nearest to the driver’s final destination. • As the vehicle enters the garage and loses GPS coverage, position determination automatically switches over to Wi-Fi and inertial sensor data. This platform will then use this data to accurately guide the driver to the empty spot. If equipped, the vehicle can even park itself. • Using a cloud based navigation system, the remaining route to the driver’s final destination is automatically transferred to their mobile device. Continuing to utilize indoor positioning technology, the driver’s mobile device now guides them to their final indoor destination, depending upon the mix of the signals available to the device, and the hybrid-positioning engine to provide location. • Returning to the driver’s vehicle is a simple matter of tapping the ‘Take Me Back’ button on their mobile phone, and the needed audible and visual cues are provided to guide them back to their vehicle. • Once the driver arrives within visual distance of the vehicle, geo-fence alerts can be used to flash the vehicle lights, pulse the horn or start the engine.
