This project is implemented in public transport domain with the goal to reduce hardware costs.
There was a .Net based client-server application developed to provide real-time information about public transport schedule.
The server-side application implements data exchange between transport companies.
The client-side application receives information from the server and displays it on monitors, placed around a city.
Since the project goal was to reduce the hardware costs, it was decided to use the Raspberry Pi, which is cheaper than current hardware. For this, the client-side application and all functionality had to be ported from .Net to Java to run on the new OS.
The application works as follows:
Since the performance risks were quite high, our team had to verify the initial concept before starting any development activities. Therefore, we have checked whether it was possible to implement such Java application and analysed the risk of its low performance.
