GPS Bus Notifier (Gadget Freak Design Contest winners!)

details

University of Florida student Miles Moody used a WIZnet’s W5200 Ethernet Shield and an Arduino Nano to scrape and parse HTML from a local web service that reports the real-time GPS coordinates of the bus that takes him to school every day:

As you see below image, the system notifies how close the bus is to a station. When the yellow light is on, the aurthor will run to the station and get on the bus without delaying.

GPS_BUS

 

It could be a good example to show an idea can make our life more convenient.
