School buses need constant monitoring. With dozens of unsupervised children and teens there will likely be misconduct. Since the bus driver needs to remain focused on the road and not on the student passengers, school administrators are increasingly exploring the use of a real-time on-board video surveillance solution to offer an effective remote monitoring solution.
SerVision’s MVG (Mobile Video Gateway) is an ideal monitoring solution for bus fleets. Installed together with up to four or eight analog cameras on each bus, the MVG connects to the Internet via a cellular modem to transmit live video from the bus while in transit. Live and recorded video from the bus can be streamed to PCs, smart phones, or laptops. In addition to viewing live/recorded video, school authorities are able to remotely pinpoint the location of the bus via the MVG’s built-in GPS system, get real-time notifications on dangerous driving or vehicle collisions via the built-in Accelerometer, receive alarms when the bus has gone outside its predefined route via the unit’s GeoFencing feature, and hold a two-way conversation with the driver via a microphone and speaker connected to the MVG.
