At the rate the Internet of Things (IoT) space is advancing, it won't be long until the point that our daily lives will greatly be influenced by IoT enabled devices. Already IoT enabled devices like Amazon Echo or Google Nest have taken a swift across the market and they have been performing quite phenomenally well in the market. It is estimated that 2020, 25 billion devices will be connected over the internet. Certainly one more feather can be added to IoT’s cap as buses can also be connected over IoT and it will certainly take the transportation to a different and unprecedented level altogether.
Hydrogen buses have already been in the news for reducing the carbon emission and pollution as governments of various countries are planning to go big for the zero emission policy. Buses with IoT will make an inseparable pair. Many manufacturers have already started working on the area by seeing this coming in the near future. For instance, Luxoft is helping Vantage Power, a designer and manufacturer of hybrid powertrains for bus OEMs and as a retrofit solution for buses already on the road, obtain, analyze and present vehicle data to its customers in ways that improves operational efficiency and reliability while reducing fleet maintenance costs. Through Vantage Power’s VP Vision product, we’re helping them connect vehicle data and advanced energy management firmware with sophisticated analytics for remote diagnostics and predictive maintenance over the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud based platform bringing the powerful benefits of the Internet of Things to buses.
Solutions provider Presidio is changing the deep rooted picture of the creaky yellow school transport by giving it a new IoT makeover. One of its marque transportation changes this fall was in the fleet of buses possessed by the Huntsville, TX, Independent School District (ISD). Found 70 miles outside of Houston, the expansive area has 6,300 understudies and traverses an incredible 644 square miles. Presidio deliberately started the way toward overhauling the transport fleet by including a group of arrangements, including: on-load up Wi-Fi for understudies, ongoing motor telematics, real-time view abilities for cameras and ridership check on & off. Presidio took advantage of its working arrangement of IoT innovation for savvy transportation, which incorporates Intel IoT portals, Intel vPro innovation, and Intel IoT security arrangements.
The beneifts of IoT in Hydrogen buses:
Today, bus manufacturers and organizations are acquiring, analyzing and presenting vehicle information in a way that has not been done previously, picking up experiences that have never been conceivable and exchanging this ability specifically to clients. While it as of now offers an unparalleled support of the transport business, all the more significantly, it has established the frameworks to convey all the more new highlights in the months and years to accompany various points:
Knowing about the charging part whenever it is necessity.
Live connection with the bus depot for quick help in case of need.
Prevent vehicle failure in advance by knowing the vehicle status.
In case of failure, guarantee the fastest and most proficient solution and diagnosis.
Ensuring the most needed spare parts by digging down the insights of past data.
Analyzing the data of Hydrogen Fuel cell and the live status of it.
Decrease the managerial weight and give propelled capacities, for example,
