Last year, a school bus with 11 children was hijacked in Arkansas. The hijacker had blended in with parents and got into the bus before the driver could stop him. He himself started driving the bus. GPS tracking system was recently installed in the bus and that helped the police to track it down immediately. The hijacker drove another 10 miles and was finally caught. All the students were saved without much fuss.
It was an incident that brought forth the advantage of having GPS tracking facility in school buses. Now, these are not incidents that happen to everyone or everyday. But think about it. Wouldn’t you be at peace knowing your child is safely on the way home? Wouldn’t it be comforting to know that your child is late only because of heavy traffic? Safety and convenience are advantages that school bus tracking systems provide.
These advantages has immensely popularised real-time GPS school bus tracking in middle-east countries such as UAE as well in Europe and USA. It is also slowly picking up in Asian countries as people realize the utility in implementing GPS School Bus Tracking software.
However, GPS tracking would offer more value if it works with another application such the ParentApp. This android application acts as a single point reference for real time tracking of the students’ whereabouts as well as school activities. It is a handy application for tracking attendance, fees, results and much more.
Individual student tracking is made possible through RFID tags that students carry everywhere. It is an economical option and is more convenient than typical barcodes that needs to be scanned by the bus driver.
GPS and RFID are undoubtedly at the forefront of tracking technologies and would give you additional safety, savings, efficiency and ease of use. The main features of school bus tracking are given below
