Ursalink Brings More Security to School Buses

Xiamen, China, August 31, 2018 --(PR.com)-- School bus security is a major concern to all school employees and parents. News accounts appear almost weekly with stories of children being left alone on a school bus for hours at a time; regardless of how much training takes place in this area, incidences of children being left behind still occur. Besides that, drunk driving is also a threat to the security of school buses. In order to eliminate these dangers, Swedish system integrator TRINORTH came to Ursalink for an advanced M2M solution with an industrial cellular router.

All the strategic insights boil down to the same basic principle – ensure children’s safety. Everything the company has done has been in the service of that plan, deploying connected devices with high reliability and stability to improve the real-time monitoring and on-site visibility control center.

Customers in the search of a reliable and seamless cellular communication can finally settle on industrial cellular router for its top-ranking performance.

The solution integrates a passenger counter, alcohol lock, and an industrial cellular router. The connection between the passenger counter and industrial cellular router relies on the Ethernet service of RJ45. The DI is used for connecting with the alcohol lock, triggering the SMS/Email alarm, and DO is in the control of the engine heater through SMS. The Driver needs to check his breath with the alcohol lock every time he starts the bus engine. If the test result is negative, the bus will function properly. But if he fails, the vehicle will lock, and send an alarm e-mail/SMS out to the remote server over the 3G/4G network. Second, with the engine heater, the driver is allowed to preheat the bus engine by sending an SMS and makes it start quickly regardless of the cold weather.

The passenger counter is the most critical components of this solution, it helps the school to check in and checkout the number of children, preventing stranding a child on the bus, and through Python programming, all data from the passenger counter will be processed on the router with a customized Python application, which greatly improve the efficiency.

With these solutions adopted, the company’s customers can make the most of their businesses and open up a new era of competitiveness, growth and put children’s safety at the forefront with a real return on investment.
