Addressing the safety concerns of thousands of parents, one of the leading education software providers, Edsys has introduced a Real-time School Bus Tracking Software.
This software has a web application as well as a mobile application that helps parents, teachers and school authorities to keep track of the students’ real time location at anytime from wherever they are, given that they have an active Internet connection. Parents or school authorities can ask for the software from the company’s website.
A company spokesperson said that “After thorough research, we have identified that a lot of student related incidents that has happened in the past happen not during school hours, but either before or after that time. There are lots of things that could go wrong. Children may not get onto the right school bus, might miss the bus, or may even get down at the wrong stop. These kinds of incidents can often lead to more serious issues.” He further said “With our real-time school bus tracking software, we aim to provide a solution for this. Children will be provided with RFID tags along with their ID cards. With these tags, every child will be easily distinguishable through their unique profiles. RFID reading machines will be placed in the doorway of all school vehicles to read the tags. Once they have boarded the bus, the bus is tracked through a GPS tracking device installed in it.”
The importance of GPS School Bus Tracking System was reminded during one sad incident in the Middle East. A three year old child was left forgotten in a hot, baking vehicle. It happened in Ras Al Khaimah, where the temperature rose up to 43 degrees Celsius. In fact, the temperature inside the vehicle was close to 55 degrees Celsius. The incident was reported by gulfnews on 9th June, 2013 (source: article)
With the School Bus Tracking Software, school authorities will be alerted if a child has not got off the bus or forgot to swipe out.
Parents living in cold conditions don't have to keep waiting in the chilly outdoors for their children to arrive. All they need to do is look at the real-time movement on their smart phones and step out as the bus gets close to pick up point.
Edsys uses industry standard hardware components to ensure accuracy. Their School Bus Tracking Software is unique as both the tracker and RFID card reader are part of the same device, making installation easier.
The School Bus Tracking Software offers detailed real-time location information of students to both parents and school authorities. The school management will be able to monitor the speed at which the bus travels, the distance covered and more. Here are the features of the Edsys GPS School Bus Tracking software.
