Porting of the application for displaying public transport schedule to Raspberry Pi.

Public Transport Application

Business goal

  • The client-server application to inform citizens about the schedule of public transport in real time has already been developed. Both parts of the application, client and server, were implemented on .NET
  • The server application exchanges data on bus or metro schedules between transport companies. The client application takes data from the server and displays it on monitors located throughout the city
  • The task was to transfer the existing functionality of the client’s application from .Net to Java so that it could work on the new OS
  • The main goal is to reduce equipment costs, so it was decided to use Raspberry PI, the cost of which is significantly lower than the cost of previously used computers

Features

  • The application connects to the server via the Ethernet port, receives data in XML format and displays it on the monitor via the HDMI port
  • To configure the application, the XML file can be edited outside of Raspberry, and then copied to disk
  • Before creating a Java application, we analyzed the risk of poor performance on the new platform to avoid possible failures

Benefits

  • Reduction in customer equipment costs.
