A current trend in modern public transport are real-time passenger information (RTPI) systems which are used to provide extensive information regarding the current transportation and traffic situation to the passengers.
Gaining the data necessary for such a system is a complex task, especially for wide areas. Vehicles have to be continuously localized and aligned with their current schedule plan. Technologies like GPS and GPRS are essential to fufill these requirements. The Upper Austrian Transportation Association(OÖVV) decided to equip all vehicles in public transport with industrial mobile hardware running a specialized software. This thesis aims at the development of this software client.
