I am looking for a bus stop audiovisual announcement solution for the public transportation project which could be compatible with Rise Vision. Any suggestion or pointing out a direction would be much appreciated. Perhaps here are some coders who could help with it?

Richard, could you explain in more details what are you trying to build there?

The thing I need is some solution which could use GPS coordinates to display real time information regarding the bus route. For example, if the bus approaches a bus stop on its line on the screen would appear or it would indicate the name of the bus stop and perhaps also an audio gets triggered to name the bus stop and then it would announce the next bus stop in on the line. Visually it looks something like this:
or this, when the screen would be split in two or more sections one for bus line information and other for infotainment:

So far I don't have anything yet regarding possible custom solution, just searching endlessly the web.

There are multiple companies offering their ready-made solutions like adibus.com or aesys.com but then I would need to buy their Digital Signage software and use that instead of Rise Vision.

I am not sure what the end solution may turn out to be - a line of code, a widget or an app, but I am determined to find one. Preferably with the help of this awesome group of support! :)

Richard, that is pretty sophisticated for RV platform. I am not a developer either. The simplest thing to make for me using RV would be something like timing placeholder's playlist items, so they appear just before the particular stop along the bus route and then disappear from a screen as bus is moving further. That would work only if the bus can stay fairly on schedule.
