Good morning All,
This is Part 2 of my original post and as promised, I will dive into the software side of the project.
First, the development stack is:
- server-side is PHP
- database is Postgres
- webserver is Apache
This alpha version of the app is a classic single-page web app (not PWA). To access the app, just scan the QR Code below with your mobile. This will take you to the landing page (using web parlance).
As the primary function is to show bus “Live Arrival Times”, I have added a feature (in keeping with the contactless drive) to allow you to create a QR Code for a specific bus stop e.g. the bus stop you regularly use to get to work. If you scan the QR Code below it will display the “Live Arrival Times” for the bus stop code 72104 which is Liverpool Street.
As I had stated in my original post, I envisage using the bus stop network as an “SOS” network, providing information to the nearest emergency services. The screenshot below shows the nearest hospitals to the Liverpool Street bus stop 72104.
There are other features which you can all explore.
Also, I am still adding when time permits!
Do share your thoughts!
