Frequently asked questions
Camera systems monitor student and driver behaviour during routes, and record the external environment. School bus cameras can capture bullying between students as well as accusations against the driver. With video footage, you no longer have to resolve conflicting stories about interactions on the bus.
A typical school bus camera system consists of 2 to 8 dome or wedge specialized mobile cameras, a mobile digital video recorder, wiring harnesses, and video playback and archiving software.
The DVR can record signals from the vehicle, including braking, right and left turning, warning lights, and stop-arm deployment. It can also record G-sensor events, vehicle speed, alarms, and idle time.
By recording the school bus signals you monitor driver behavior and confirm if the driver has followed proper procedure, including braking, warning lights, and stop-arm. Video can be tagged with events, then you can search video that occured when the signal was deployed. The most common signal for this is stop-arm and panic button.
G-sensor measures any amount of force that was exerted on the vehicle during the route. For example, if the driver took a hard turn, or if there was a collision with another vehicle, the force of movement is measured by the G-sensor. If acceptable measurements are exceeded, an alarm is triggered and you can retrieve the video around that alarm to view the event.
