Abstract—Public transportation users in Thailand have faced the problem of wasting time waiting for the bus due to do not know when the bus will arrive, its location, number of passengers, and speed, etc. They are risky to injure and disability due to frequent accidents and have increased gradually each year. Therefore, this research aims to study smart bus management system architecture (SBMSA) using mesh app and service architecture (MASA), to synthesize SBMSA using MASA, and to evaluate the suitability of SBMSA by studying and analyzing related research on smart bus management system (SBMS) models. The researcher discovers a synthesized model of SBMSA using MASA which consists of 3 modules: IoT stack, GPS tracking system, and smart bus management system. Module 1 IoT stack consists of 5 subsystems: sensors devices and actuators, IoT gateway, communications network, cloud data management, and mesh app. Module 2 GPS tracking system to receive signals via satellite to specify bus location and route in real-time. Module 3 SBMS consists of 8 subsystems: smart tracking, smart gate attendance, smart camera, smart alert, smart estimate time of arrival, smart suggestions, smart accident center, and smart report. The suitability evaluation of SBMSA using MASA was at the highest level. The findings of this research will lead to the development of SBMS and help to solve problems of public transportation in the future.

Index Terms—Smart bus management system, GPS tracking system, mesh app and service architecture.
