The purpose of the research is to implement a device that functions as a real-time display of the estimated arrival time of the yellow bus in University of Indonesia. The device uses an 8-bit Atmel AVR microcontroller based on Arduino platform as its main controller, and utilizes GPRS-based connection to transmit the data to the server. The system fetches the data of the calculated estimation arrival time of the Yellow Bus for each bus stop. The information will be updated periodically by the server. The testing results show that the success rate of the data-fetching was 99.6% for the duration of 23:53 until 02:46, and 99.7% for the duration of 07:24 until 09:43. The average usage of GPRS quota was 10.3 MB for a period of 10 days. Finally, the device's additional function for maintenance and debugging by utilizing SMS service has been proved to work properly.
