Help Sri Lanka uses satellite technology to monitor buses
Colombo: Sri Lanka has started using satellite technology to monitor the movements of buses in a bid to "detect and control misdeeds" committed by drivers, a media report said.

National Transport Commission (NTC) director Chandrasiri Weerasekara said Global Positioning System (GPS) is being used to detect buses that run at high speeds and at unacceptable low speeds, ignore stipulated bus stops and unnecessarily stop for long periods of time, the Daily Mirror reported.

The buses would be monitored to ascertain whether they run according to time tables and whether they follow the stipulated speed limits, said a statement by the government information department.

The movements of the buses would be displayed on digital screens at monitoring centres, and errant drivers would be instantly advised to follow rules over satellite phones placed in the buses.
