The bus card checking for all the students in all the college buses is necessary. Till now, it is done manually by the transport officers. As it takes more time and complexity, our main objective is to automate this bus card checking process using the barcode in a student’s identity card. The barcode is registered at the time of fee payment itself. The barcode reader is given as input to the controller. Then the input data is compared with the registered data to check the authorization. If the input data is already registered, then count - one will increase. The ultrasonic sensors are used to count the number of students entering the bus. The necessity of two ultrasonic sensors is to avoid counting the person who enters and leaves the bus immediately. Whenever the ultrasonic sensors detect the entry of a person, the count - two will increase. Then these two count values are compared. If there is any mismatch in that, there will be a display as access denied in LCD. This LCD is used to intimate the bus driver. The GSM is used to intimate the transport officers.
