Bus Information System

Bus Information System

The Bus Information System (BIS) being developed by Franklin Wireless represents a full end-to-end IoT (Internet of Things) solution and includes both hardware and software engineered by the company. This innovative BIS features Franklin’s newly developed intelligent gateway that supports GPS, WiFi, OBDII, CCTV and black box integration and includes a fully functional information system.  This system allows bus companies to track and manage their bus fleets and provides important information to bus riders. Bus companies can monitor in real-time the speed and location of each bus in their fleet and view live streaming video from video-enabled black boxes positioned in various locations within the buses.  A unique feature of this new BIS that sets it apart from similar solutions is that it extends beyond remote monitoring and actually allows for two-way communication between the control center and each bus.
