Abstract: Nowadays due to the increase in the number of school bus services, authentication is becoming an unmanageable task which results in a possibility of an unauthorized use of bus services and raises the risk of insecurity to school students and causes both physical and mental harm to the students. The conventional passenger management practices require an employee for each bus to authenticate the subscription passes which is a time-consuming task. Another school bus management system has been proposed in 2015 using RFID which can be misemployed. To enhance the efficiency of passenger’s management system this paper proposes a novel method for school bus subscription management system using face recognition technology in which a highly efficient cascade classifier algorithm is used for face detection and linear binary pattern histogram algorithm (LBPH) is used for feature extraction and selection. The entire system is programmed using python according to the demand of face recognition technology, python is provided open source computer vision (OpenCV) library support for enhanced face recognition applications. The equipment used in the school bus can distinguish teachers, parents and students and prevents the unauthorized use of bus services and responds by texting the bus administrator about unauthorized access and suggests taking the immediate action and checks the validity of existing users and suggests for renewal after expiry by a short message service(SMS).
