Humans trust schools and bus drivers to keep their children safe, and we are their tech support. The COCO conductor app ensures that there is a proper digital trail of the bus route and pickup/handover data. Including pictures of the handover!
From boarding the school bus in the morning, de-boarding, boarding from school and the handover upon return. All 4 steps grant the conductor the power to send instant notifications to the parents as well as the school administration so that both parties know that the student has successfully boarded the bus. At each step the parents gets SMS/push notifications.
In this notification, both, the parents and the school administration will receive: –
1. The location from where the student boarded and deboarded the bus
With this information, parents can be assured about their ward reaching school safely. Parents can check the bus location in real-time whenever they want with the parent app (Check parent app).
With login details, the bus conductor can access the bus route allocated to him/her. The conductors of the school bus have their own dedicated mobile application called the conductor app
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.
