TA startup that has been recognised by the Government of India in its flagship schemes reached out to us to build their application. The startup focuses on tracking school children traveling via school bus and ensures their safety. We developed three separate versions of the application- for drivers, parents and school transport managers.
A lot of time of both parents and children is wasted on waiting for the school bus.
We enabled a digital notification mechanism for all the stakeholders.
Notification is sent to parents whenever the bus driver is a small distance away.
Parents can then send their child or take them personally to the bus stop depending on the alert received
Driver was unable to manually enter stopping points while driving because of multiple reasons which made it difficult to send updates.
We developed a system where the stopping points were entered by drivers who went through the route and did manual entry in the application. The route got stored in the database.
As drivers were not tech savvy, we needed an automatic robust tracking system. Few areas had a lack of proper GPS technology which made tracking very difficult.
We installed a GPS tracker in the engine of the bus.
There were three separate applications for drivers, parents, and school transport managers.
We used NodeJS socket programming for building the application which enabled accurate synchronization
All the three entities-parents,driver, transport manager received the exact live location and notifications
We were able to provide a comprehensive technological solution to the School Bus application that covered the entire journey from start to end. The highest satisfaction was that with our efforts, we were able to provide comfort to the parents that their child is safe.
