The information about ElectriCity that changes over time, so called real-time data, is accessible through an API (application programming interface). An example of real-time data are the buses current location, the temperatures inside of the buses and whether someone has pressed the stop button.
When you are logged in to the bus WIFI you will have access to a API that is avalible locally in every bus from Icomera. If you make a GET request to "ombord.info/api/xml/system/" you will get a XML response with the System ID for the bus. The Buses page is updated with which System ID each bus has.
