Abstract

The location-based service is emerging again to the public attention. The location recognition environment up-to-now has been studied with its focus only on a person, an object or a moving object. However, this study proposes a location recognition model that serves to recognize and track, in real time, multiple passengers in a moving vehicle. Identifying the locations of passengers can be classified into two classes: one is to use the high price terminal with GPS function, and the other is to use the economic price compact terminal without GPS function. Our model enables the simple compact terminal to provide effective location recognition under the on-boarding situation by transmitting messages through an interface device and sensor networks for a vehicle equipped with GPS. This technology reduces transmission traffic after detecting the condition of a vehicle (being parked or running), because it does not require transmission/receiving of information on the locations of passengers who are confined in a vehicle when the vehicle is running. Also it extends battery life by saving power consumption of the compact terminal. Hence, we carried out experiments to verify its serviceability by materializing the efficient tracking system for passengers with the detection algorithm of a stopping vehicle proposed in this study. Moreover, about 200 experiments using the system designed with this technology proved successful recognition on on-boarding and alighting of passengers with the maximum transmission distance of 12 km. In addition to this, the running recognition tests showed the test with the detection algorithm of a stopping vehicle has reduced transmission traffic by 41.6% compared to the algorithm without our model.
