Cameras on school buses protect children

Redflex Traffic Systems, a leader in road safety technology, has chosen Basler IP cameras for its Student Guardian system protecting children around school buses. The system is intended to deter drivers in the United States from illegally passing stopped school buses, or to hold them accountable if they do.

Student Guardian uses two cameras per school bus, one on the front and one on the rear driver’s side, to monitor traffic while the stop arm of the bus is deployed. Whenever cars illegally pass a school bus, the cameras capture high-definition video and high-resolution images of license plates and drivers. With a resolution of 5 Megapixels, the Basler BIP2-2500c-dn IP cameras used can easily monitor three lanes. The captured image data is then submitted to local law enforcement to determine whether a citation is warranted.

‘Intelligent Transportation Systems strive to make all of our lives safer,’ said Enzio Schneider at Basler. ‘This project safeguards those who need our protection most: our children and we are pleased to contribute to this cause.’

Basler IP cameras are available in the UK through Multipix Imaging.
