Pupil Student Transportation Bus Video Systems

School Bus Video Observation Surveillance Systems

Student Transportation School Bus Security Observation System 


“The worlds most valuable cargo travels in school buses.”
Pupil transportation surveillance security camera systems can provide a management tool to document and possibly help to reduce the risk and liability when bad things happen on a school bus. For decades state, county and local municipalities have been employing mobile video security surveillance camera systems on school buses to provide a verifiable record of events that may occur during student transportation activities, providing an added measure of oversight when required.  


Choice of Mobile Video Solution Based On Applications

While many of the mobile video solution applications for student pupil transportation are similar regardless of what others prefer to designate them there are differences in what might be required for different applications based on the parameters of their service.

Industrial Grade 1080P SS4 & SS4GW Mobile Video Solutions
For example mobile video solution applications for student pupil transportation in the below listed require nearly identical features and system requirements:

  • Public School Bus Camera System
  • Catholic School Bus Camera systems
  • Charter School Bus Camera systems
  • Christian School Bus Camera system
  • County Contract Bus Student Transportation Camera system
  • Public Head Start program Bus Security Surveillance system
  • Public Student Special Education Transportation Camera system

The above applications all require similar system features provided by the Extreme environment protection incorporated into the Industrial Grade SS4 & SS4GW system for a pupil transportation mobile video solution; Dangerous Driving Behaviors charting, multiple cameras that record to a solid state disk for later review, Driver Event Marker button with the only elective option of GPS to document vehicle speeds and verify stop times at pickup points, railroad tracks and 2 way stop intersections, as well as built in Wi-Fi wireless for downloading files.

High Definition 720P-AHD Mobile Video Solutions SD4HW & SD4HC (3G/4G Cellular)
The below mobile video solution applications for student pupil transportation, often require a enhanced version of the system that can provide an added level of control and oversight due to the additional accountability required or the availability of additional funding to help overcome the additional risk involved with their specific applications parameters.

  • Public Alternative School Student Transportation Camera system
  • Public Long Distance Student Medical Transportation Surveillance
  • Public School Activities Bus Security Surveillance system
  • Public School Sports Activities Bus Security Surveillance system
  • Private School Bus Cameras system
  • University Student Bus Camera system
  • University Student Shuttle Camera system

The above applications would benefit from the addition of a 3G/4G Cellular capability that would permit the management staff Live View from the school administrator PC, or from iPhone & Android smart phones when there is a problem or alarm triggered by the driver in the case of a Driver Panic Button Alarm, or the system in the case of a Geo-Fence violation, Speed violation.

The addition of GPS module would also permit Live GPS Tracking of the vehicles, Route tracing of past locations, speed of the vehicle, and On Screen Mapping which could all be valuable tools for management of the vehicles in case of problem or events as many of these applications require out of town trips.

Safety of Student Passengers

Particular concern is the realized or perceived safety of the student passengers, who in many cases may be young or special needs. It is important to be able to document professional service and care provided these passengers when in the care of the district. Claims or impropriety and abuse can be perceived by some who may have diminished faculties or are very young, often the difference between a perception of abuse can be cleared up by reviewing a video file of the incident from a non biased expert witness, the mobile video DVR installed in the vehicle to insure the care provided the passengers upholds the high standards set by the district.

When a bus driver in the field encounters something unusual with a passenger or when responding to an incident, they may overlook an important element in the scenario that can often lead to potential problems later on. Having an extra set of eyes on the situation as seen through your real time bus video camera, can often provide an additional level of safety for the driver in the field.

The SD4D is the "Standard Grade" 3-Axis Accelerometer version of conventional mobile video solution of a School Bus Video Camera system with built in Dangerous Driving Behavior features. These Dangerous Driving features are usually found in Paratransit Surveillance Systems and Transit Bus Camera Systems applications where elderly or disabled are transported. Due to the additional oversight that may be required for use of Federal or State funding, this system provides the ability to help insure the transport is operated in a safe manor, with all dangerous inertia forces documented for later review.

The high resolution school bus video cameras (1-4) are separated from the mobile vehicle DVR and can be positioned where needed to provide much better bus camera field of view coverage. The 100% solid State mobile bus DVR is secured in a steel locking enclosure, to protect the SD memory card from driver tampering and criminal assaults. This version provides high resolution images and long record memory storage on a 128 GB SDXC 100% solid state cards  for 30-400 hours of video recording storage depending on the number of cameras and settings.

The SS4 is the "Industrial Grade" 1080P version with SDXC memory card of 1TB - 2TB SSD massive storage capacity, adapted from other industrial applications that require much tougher DVRs able to survive extreme environments, with IP65 waterproof rating, higher shock and vibration, higher heat and cold operating parameters, much wider 150 degree FOV, larger lens for better light gathering and crisper image, with the much enhanced 9-Axis Accelerometer version of conventional mobile video solution of a School Bus Video Camera system with built in Dangerous Driving Behavior features. These Dangerous Driving features are usually found in Paratransit Surveillance Systems and Transit Bus Camera Systems applications where elderly or disabled are transported. Due to the additional oversight that may be required for use of Federal or State funding, this system provides the ability to help insure the transport is operated in a safe manor, with all dangerous inertia forces documented for later review.
