21 Feb How IoT and mobility enhance traditional School Bus tracking solution?
The Internet of Things (IoT) is climbing the new heights of imagination and security.
It is becoming outrageous in the arena of applicability and usability.
It has not only extended its capabilities toward solving problems but has started offering multiple solutions across various industry sectors.
The concept of IoT in context to school bus tracking solution:
Supported by Cloud Services, IoT and Mobility, it is possible to establish a common point of data access by the School admin and the parents.
1. RFID (Radio Frequency Identification)
RFID is similar to barcoding in that data from a tag or label are captured by a device that stores the data in a database.
It collects the data of every students and trace the driving patterns of a bus driver
2. OBD (On Board Diagnostics)
A bus driver drives rash, attempting dangerous turns by making sharp cuts, speeds over the limits or overtake other vehicles.
This is identified when an On-Board Diagnostics (OBD) come into play.
3. GPS (Global Positioning Systems)
A mobile data connection provides a local gateway to send information periodically collected by all the sensors on the bus.
The server then sends reports, location information and alerts on movement and safety to the supervisor’s mobile.
What are the features that a fleet tracking system has got to offer?
The system helps with real-time tracking of a bus online.
– There has been a special service provided by Tata Docomo.
It sends alerts to the parents as to when the bus is going to reach a particular stop.
– The tracking system can help with the provision of real-time and average speed.
The software helps in automating most of the process, including routing and scheduling.
