Student safety and security is top priority, for School Authorities and Parents alike. It is often taken for granted, that School takes complete responsibility of Student safety which is far from reality and practicality. Safety of the child depends on several links in a long chain of events, which is often not fully in control of either the students, parents or the school authorities. One of the weakest links in the chain is the whereabouts of the child while in transit from home to school and vice versa. Here is where technology can aid all the stake-holders help each other in ensuring safety of the child.
While GPS tracking of school buses can help the authorities pin-point the location of the bus, the whereabouts of the child is still a missing piece of information. What if the child has not boarded the bus at all? What if the child has boarded the wrong bus? What if the child got down from the bus at the wrong place and strayed away and never entered the school premises?
Here is where cutting edge technology can help bridge this gap. Now you can not only monitor where the bus is, you can also know in which bus (out of several school buses) your child is traveling and also who the driver is along with other children on board the given School bus, all in real-time and most importantly without any human intervention.
BIOFenz system sends SMS alerts to parents both while boarding the bus and disembarking. Individual parent logins can help parents relax and avoid making frantic phone calls in case of delays. Over-speeding alerts to school authorities can keep erring drivers under check. Its amazing to know how a small service fee can help improve the safety of the child by a big leap.
