COCO Parent app is for parents to track and stay in touch with their children’s school transport. COCO parent app allows parents to track school buses in real-time and view the current location of the child’s bus. Children safety is most important, which is why COCO is only accessible for parents.
Parents are sent alerts when a driver starts the trip so that they may plan their tasks and prepare their kids to reach the bus stop on time.
The COCO Parent Application provides parents with access to a list of trips their kid is assigned to and highlights current active trips.
No more waiting for the school bus at stoppage points and no more running to the stoppage point to avoid missing the bus. COCO triggers notifications when the bus is nearing a stoppage point and shows ETA for more accuracy.
Anytime during active trip time, parents can view the bus location on the map, call driver/attender for any queries, or request and view traffic spots enroute to school. COCO provides a live map view with traffic information for parents to remain calm in case the bus is delayed.
Just one app needed to view multiple kids’ profiles and manage both with just a click of a button. The COCO Parent Application lets parents edit their profile and home address of kids with just a few clicks.
Students are instructed to swipe their NFC card to update boarding and deboarding information. COCO automatically sends notifications to parents whenever their kid enters or exits from the bus during both pickup and drop trips.
The “Assistance Control” project was inspired by the basic idea of the “Bologna Process”, a Pan-European collaboration which started in 1999, to adapt technology to provide a better quality of education that would allow improvement of the next generation of classroom teaching.
The best project finally chosen and tested involved students registered for classes with NFC phones, during the academic year 2011–2012 at “Universidad Pontificia de Salamanca, Campus Madrid” (UPSAM).
This resulted in the senior students at the School of Computer Engineering to certify 99.5% accuracy and ease of attendance that ensured continuous assessment without loss of instructional time allocated to this activity.
