Once considered a means to modify student behavior or capture proof of unruly students, schools are now finding that they can use onboard video systems to retrieve other useful information.
How we retrieve the information has drastically changed. At one time someone had to go out to the school bus, pull the hard drive, review the video, and create a video clip. Then, the person reviewing the information has to have the knowledge and tools to open up this clip to review. All of this takes resources, time and money. Video experts began to see this as an outdated way of recovering information when they became increasingly aware that the schools needed this information quickly to respond to incidents and accusations.
So how to you fix this problem? Go wireless! Wi-Fi system and Wi-Fi-ready DVRs are the way to go. The cost is quickly offset by the increased employee efficiency and response time when important events occur. Not only does it give timely information on student behavior, but also can evaluate the bus driver’s driving behavior and actual driving abilities by interfacing with the engine diagnostics.
This new technology for school buses protects students, bus drivers, and schools by transmitting accurate information to schools and authorities in a timely manner.
