Tata Skoolman telematics based tracking solution was one of the main highlights of the exhibition. The technology enables parents to keep track of their wards on real time basis in addition to helping schools and bus operators to increase operational efficiency.
Skoolman system involves cameras which can send instant photos of the bus’ passenger area and GPS sensor which keeps both parents, schools and operators informed about the current location of the vehicle.
Tata has also showcased its entire range of school transport models staring from a 3-seater to a 68-seater. Models include Iris, Magic, Winger, CityRide EX, Starbus and the Starbus Ultra. All the vehicles comply with soon-to-be-implemented Bus Body Code.
Salient features of Tata SKOOL Bus are on-board cameras with 64 GB memory for recording, GPS sensors, rear view camera with dashboard-mounted display, roof-mounted flashing lamps which start automatically when the doors are open, door buzzer and indicator on dashboard, electronic front destination board, stop request switch on each row of seats, chin guard, 2-point seat belts, fire extinguisher and breakable rear glass with a hammer.
Tata Motors has also been conducting ‘Hamare Bus Ki Baat Hai’ workshops to train school bus staffs on basic safety procedures and how to reach in case of an accident.
