DIY Public Transport Tracker

DIY Public Transport Tracker

Are you someone who is always running late? Are you frustrated when you miss a train or bus and are left waiting outside for 20 minutes before the next service? With this cool project you can use a DMD (dot matrix display) to display the upcoming times for public transport services you regularly use. You can put this display up on your wall at home and (assuming public transport is GPS tracked in your city) automatically display the upcoming train or bus time predictions. This is sure to give you the motivation you need to make sure you are ready on time! You could even use this project to display upcoming weather forecasts so that you can make sure to dress appropriately for your trip. This project runs of a Raspberry Pi but could easily be adapted to run off an Arduino you prefer. To find out more about this awesome project check out the following link!
