Rosario Bus SA TecnoBus System (http://rbi.ims.ca/4922-554). To provide improved service and reduce costs, Rosario Bus developed an integrated system for its buses that travel in and around Rosario, Argentina. A computer on each bus connects with a data center operation to provide real-time scheduling, route planning, driver training and customer satisfaction tracking. One aspect of the system ties GPS to ticketing, thus simplifying passenger boarding and fare payment. Applied Data Systems VGX embedded single board computer with Intel's RISC-based XScale PXA255 processor proved to be the application-ready platform with the technical features required for the application.
