School bus accidents and child abduction reports are now on the rise, one way that might help to avoid incidents such as these in the future is with school bus tracking.
To counter adverse incidents, school bus tracking is now being set as mandatory by many Govt. bodies. Recently Motor Vehicle Dept., in one of the southern states of India, Kerala, made GPS vehicle tracking mandatory for school buses plying in the state.
Using a GPS tracker in a school bus offers a lot of benefits for the school system and parents of the children who ride the bus.
With school bus tracking, both the parents and the school administration can see where the bus is at any given moment, track trip progress and get an estimate on when the bus will arrive at a bus stop.
Such information can help with student safety from monitoring the speed of the school bus to tracking when and where a student gets on and off the bus.
Student RFID who swipes while boarding or exiting the bus ensure his/her attendance with location updates real-time, guaranteeing peace of mind for parents and school authorities.
Besides, it helps school system make most of route and fuel efficiency. School transport managers can optimize school bus schedules, and routes with pick-up/drop off points, track school bus location, and quickly act when notified (via instant alerts) on harsh driving such as speeding, accelerations, braking, etc., and accidents.
