Abstract

This research study features an android application development for automatic announcements on public buses which aims to investigate the efficiency of the GPS function in tablets and to develop an uncomplicated and low-cost android system for automatic announcements on public buses for the convenience of the passengers. The application is developed for automatic announcements of public bus stops.

The study of the components of the computer program employed to develop the android application revealed that, for the design and content, the application was evaluated at the “good” level of suitability by experts. Moreover, the group efficiency test provided ideas for the improvement of the content design which required an increase of functions in the application. The android application for automatic announcements on public buses has the efficiency level at 2.26, which is higher than 1.00. This means that the application is efficient according to the standard criteria of the SDLC-based design analysis. Therefore, this application could be suitably used on public buses for their announcements. The screen functions, the responses of the android operating system and the Google Map API are able to function effectively, receiving locations and tracking GPS movements accurately
