Due to busy work hours and tight schedules, a large number of parents depend on school vehicles for their children’s daily transportation to and from schools. But unfortunately, there are times when safety becomes an issue for children using school vehicles. This might be due to various reasons including the difficulty in managing a school bus fleet. The School Bus Attendance software was created to tackle these issues with modern day technologies such as GPS and RFID.
The Unique Hardware Behind GPS School Bus Tracking Software
The best way to assure school children’s safety while travelling in the school vehicle is to employ the real-time GPS School Bus Tracking Software. It is a convenient solution that can be accessed through your personal computer or your mobile device. There are many benefits to this software apart from real-time location tracking. It helps in driver management, fleet management, reduces expenditure, and provides convenience for both parents and school management.
As a system, the GPS School Bus Tracking Software works with amazing accuracy and reliability. For any software system to work as perfectly as imagined, the hardware has to be as good or better as the written software.
Traditional GPS Tracking Hardware
The case is not different for GPS School Bus Tracking Software. Realising this, Edsys has used industry standard components for the software. GPS tracking system requires an RFID tag reader as well as a GPS tracking device. Normally, these are two separate devices that require individual installation and maintenance. It takes up extra space and time. Also, these bulky devices are not easily portable.
So, the highlight points of traditional GPS tracking devices are:
- Separate RFID tag reader and GPS tracking device
- Individual installation and maintenance
- Bulky and less portable
The Unique Features of GPS Tracking Hardware used by Edsys
Unlike traditionally used hardware, Edsys uses hardware that is far more advanced in every respect. Firstly, there are no separate devices for RFID tag reading and GPS tracking. Both are included in the same device. But, weren’t these two devices already bulky? Then, wouldn’t it probably be a lot more bulky and difficult to carry? No. The device used by Edsys for GPS tracking is, on the contrary, is sleeker and portable.
The main features of this device are:
- RFID tag reader and GPS tracking included n the same device
- GPS tracker and RFID reader together provide School Bus Attendance. Normally, GPS tracking providers only supply tracker and that too, without the attendance functionality built in. This feature helps the system to notify which kid boarded and alighted as opposed to the normal bus arrival and departure notification.
- From casing to PCB and components on it, this device uses industry grade materials
- There are a lot of people worrying about the quality of these types of devices. We do not recommend China made devices because of two reasons – availability of manufacturers representative locally for any maintenance or support and we want to ensure component we use we have bigger say as it needs to integrate with our system.
- Portability. As all the features are included in a box, the device is portable and easy to install
- Compactly designed and conveniently sized, so that it doesn’t consume much space.
Edsys’ hardware partner is Taximeter.in, the leading manufacturers of GPS Tracking Devices in India. Their industry leading hardware combines with the quality software, which has web and mobile applications, to create a truly remarkable School Bus Tracking System.
