The project Electronic Ticket Machine is completed, satisfying the required design specifications. The system provides a user-friendly interface. The software is developed with modular approach. All modules in the system have been tested with valid data and invalid data and everything work successfully. Thus the system has fulfilled all the objectives identified and is able to replace the existing system. The constraints are met and overcome successfully. The system is designed as like it was decided in the design phase. This software has a user-friendly screen that enables the user to use without any inconvenience. The ticket machines would end the use of the hefty 1.5-kg ticket racks carried by conductors. Instead, the conductor would just have to key in the details about the fare stage and the ticket machine would print out the ticket. The machine weighs only 800 grams and is convenient to carry. The parameters are almost like that of a railway ticket, the only difference being that the machine is portable. It would also help in providing adequate data to the corporation, particularly with regard to the boarding of passengers from fare stages and important points. This would help the corporation prepare and organize its schedules more efficiently on the basis of traffic demand. Besides, it would provide data on concessions given to various sections. Another additional feature is that the data in the ticket machine could be fed into the computer.
The application has been tested with live data and has provided a successful result. Hence the software has proved to work efficiently.
This project is modularized as the following:
- Management of Route
- Trip Details
- Bus Details
- Bus Stops
- Bus Ticketing
