ireless sensor networks have the potential to provide unprecedented remote monitoring capabilities that can benefit applications such as industrial control,
environmental monitoring, and defense. Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is one of the most exciting technologies that revolutionize the working practices by increasing efficiencies, and improving profitability. It is often presented as a replacement for today’s barcodes, but the technology has much greater possibilities, such as individual serial numbers for each item, and the possibility to read these numbers at a distance of several metres. They are simpler to deploy than wired solutions and these networks will enable improved understanding of processes and environments through continual monitoring of a larger set of parameters. In this project the evolution of wireless sensor networks will be presented, using RFID techniques with examples of implementations in vehicle tracking and ticketing system (VTTS) designed for bus passengers in the college bus. Within the coming years, low cost Radio Frequency IDentification (RFID) systems are expected to become commonplace throughout the B usiness-to-Business (B2B) and Business -toConsumer (B2C) marketplace.
