“With this exciting agreement, Blue Bird dealers and customers will have access to the industry’s most advanced solution for addressing the epidemic of stop-arm violations on school buses,” said Don Nichols, vice president of parts for Blue Bird Corp. “In addition to the high-definition stop-arm camera system exclusivity, this agreement also allows our dealer network and customers premier access to Safety Vision’s proven product line of recorders, cameras and fleet tracking systems.”
The Safety Vision high-definition stop-arm camera system is a turnkey system incorporating a megapixel image sensor and solid state recording inside a rugged, weatherproof IP67/IK10-rated enclosure. Utilizing the built-in I/O ports, the system can be configured to record in 1080P or 3MP (megapixel) mode when the stop arm is actuated.
All video is recorded in real time at 30 frames per second, and utilizes H.264 compression to maximize recording times on the built-in, 32GB solid state media.
“Studies indicate that the average school bus experiences three stop-arm violations each week,” said Bruce Smith, president and CEO of Safety Vision. “Our new high-definition stop-arm camera system is a perfect fit for addressing this danger because it is a standalone system that does not require additional equipment or costly integration with third-party hardware or software.”
