Thanks to caring and dedicated drivers out there! And of course, there are still a lot of parents who are worrying about if their kids are safe on the school bus. And not only that, school buses nowadays, are already using these reliable technologies. Here are 5 Amazing Technologies used in School Buses:

 The following are the amazing and reliable technologies that other school buses are using.

 1. RFID Trackers

This RFID tags can be attached to the students id cards. And when time the students swipe the cards, notifications is sending via parents phone as well as school authorities.

2. Wi-FI

We all know how convenient the WI-FI is. And having a WI-FI in school buses is helpful for students who are completing their homework. Also they can keep themselves occupied.

This is the new advances in GPS and Telematics technology. It allows fleets to track bus routes and driver behavior as well. Operations can see routes to avoid congestion and danger zones. And this will help students to get to school on time.

4. Digital Cameras

Digital cameras can capture audio and video as well. This will let you know exactly what happening inside a school bus. And keep the driver’s attention on the road. Added to that student’s bullying, disciplinary issues and safety issues can observe and manage.

 5. School Bus Trackers

The RFID and GPS Tracking provide real time information for school bus locations. Parents are notified 10 minutes before the school bus reaches the scheduled bus stop. Once the student boards the bus, the parents and school authorities are further notified about the journey of the bus. Reports on speed of the bus, unscheduled bus stops, fuel consumption etc. can also be generated using school bus tracker. All these information can help in judging the performance of the school bus drivers and also in cutting costs labour and fuel.
