Today also buses, like cars, are equipped with onboard computers and a lot of sensors. These sensors monitor every systems on the bus. Some of these data are visualized to the driver in a very simple color scheme: red for on board problem and green for all ok. Bus drivers are happy with these simple visualizations and they can take all under control.
But the real goal is that all the information collected in the bus will transferred back to the data-centre and analyzed in real-time. In the control centre, the data are used to help the staff understand what is going on and take action if that is required. For example, a decrease of oil level can result in unexpected bus stop and leave the passengers without service for a long time. But a real time monitoring of data can be prevent the failure and thereby drastically improving customer service levels.
In MONET we calling it the “Simple Clever Maintenance".
