Video surveillance plays an integral role in student and driver safety on the yellow bus. This was most recently evidenced in School Bus Fleet’s 2020 Special-Needs Survey; a slightly higher number of respondents reported adding technology including video surveillance over last year.

SBF reached out to several suppliers to find out about some of the latest offerings in video surveillance equipment for student transportation. Those include features such as higher-resolution camera systems, cloud storage for real-time access to data, video integration with stop arms and pre- and post-trip inspection tools, and a 360-degree view.

Zeus PT from 247Security Inc. offers full 1080P on all 16 channels. Each camera has an individual audio channel and can record at 30fps. The ultrafast processor is designed to keep users from having to choose which views are clearer than others; it is also ready for cameras with 4K, a higher resolution point than 1080p. Features such as DHD storage with a 10-year warranty and built-in E-guard power protection are standard.

AngelTrax has introduced the Vulcan Series IP IntelliGuard Automated SAV System, SAV3100, featuring three IP cameras, which provide automated uploading of video and snapshots of stop-arm violations. The detection camera at the roofline captures wide-angle views of traffic below and is triggered by vehicle movement in the detection zone when the stop arm is activated. The dual-camera unit on the wall below captures clear images of license plates on each side.

Health Check uses a wireless connection to the mobile DVR to automatically send a report to the G4 Vision software. Health Check requires the DVR to have wireless connectivity, which can be cellular or Wi-Fi. It can easily manage multiple fleets or bus yards, according to the supplier.

Camera views of license plates are one part of REI’s school bus stop-arm solution. The solution also offers an event marker that is designed to prompt the capture of violators’ plates across two lanes of traffic, day or night. High-definition, color video of the violation is then automatically flagged and date/time stamped. Administrators may then quickly locate and review the captured violation using REI’s Video Management Software solution.
