SMRT uses telematic device in buses to improve commuter experience

Public transport operator, SMRT, says its buses are now equipped with a telematics device to help improve commuter experience. 

It provides real time tracking and analysis of driving parameters such as the speed of the bus, how the bus negotiates a corner, and abrupt switching of lanes. 

SMRT says this data are analysed to reinforce positive driving practices and correct poor driving behavior. 

It says with information received from the telematics device, a decision support system will be developed to improve the control of bus operations, particularly in the management of the Bus Service Reliability Framework. 

SMRT says its buses will also be equipped with a panel that displays the estimated arrival time and passenger load information of the next bus. 

Within the bus interchanges, other than the arrival time, the panel also shows traffic conditions and other useful information required by commuters.
