“The worlds most valuable cargo travels in school buses.”
Alternative pupil transportation surveillance security camera systems can provide a management tool to document and possibly help to reduce the risk and liability when bad things happen on a school bus transporting alternative school students, juvenile detention transports, struggling teens and Dropout Prevention Program youths at risk. For decades state, county and local municipalities have been employing mobile video security surveillance camera systems on school buses to provide a verifiable record of events that may occur during student transportation activities, providing an added measure of oversight when required. а



Choice of Mobile Video Solution Based On Applications

While many of the mobile video solution applications for alternative school students, juvenile detention transports, struggling teens and Dropout Prevention Program youths at risk are similar regardless of what others prefer to designate them there are differences in what might be required for different applications based on the parameters of their service.


Troubled & Struggling Teen Transportation Bus Surveillance Camera Solutions SD4HD & SD4HW
For example mobile video solution applications for student pupil transportation in the below listed require nearly identical features and system requirements:

  • Struggling Teen Transportation Bus Shuttle Security Camera System
  • Troubled Teens Transportation Bus Shuttle Surveillance Camera
  • Teenage Parent Transportation Bus Shuttle Security Camera System
  • Dropout Prevention Program Transit Security Surveillance Observation Camera
  • Remedial School Transportation Bus Shuttle Security Surveillance Observation Camera

The above applications all require similar system features provided by the standard SD4mX system for a pupil transportation mobile video solution; Dangerous Driving Behaviors charting, multiple cameras that record to a solid state disk for later review, Driver Event Marker button with the only elective option of GPS to document vehicle speeds and verify stop times at pickup points, railroad tracks and 2 way stop intersections.

The below mobile video solution applications for student pupil transportation, often require a enhanced version of the system that can provide an added level of control and oversight due to the additional accountability required or the availability of additional funding to help overcome the additional risk involved with their specific applications parameters.

  • Alternative School Bus / Shuttle Security Camera System
  • Court-adjudicated Youth Transportation Bus Shuttle Security Surveillance Camera
  • Juvenile Detention Transportation Bus Shuttle Security Surveillance Observation Camera
  • Youth At-risk Transportation Bus Shuttle Security Surveillance Observation Camera
  • Last-Chance School Transportation Bus Shuttle Security Surveillance Observation Camera

The above applications would benefit from the addition of a 3G/4G Cellular capability that would permit the management staff Live View from the school administrator PC, or from iPhone & Android smart phones when there is a problem or alarm triggered by the driver in the case of a Driver Panic Button Alarm, or the system in the case of a Geo-Fence violation, Speed violation.аThe addition of GPS module would also permit Live GPS Tracking of the vehicles, Route tracing of past locations, speed of the vehicle, and On Screen Mapping which could all be valuable tools for management of the vehicles in case of problem or events as many of these applications require out of town trips.

Safety of Trouble Teen, Struggling Teen Dropout Prevention Student Passengers

Particular concern is the realized orаperceived safety of the student passengers, who in many cases may be young or special needs.аIt is important to be able to document professional service and care provided these passengers when in the care of the district. Claims or impropriety and abuse can be perceived by some who may have diminished faculties or are very young,аoften the difference between a perception of abuse can be cleared up by reviewing a video file of the incident from a non biased expert witness, the mobile video DVR installed in the vehicle to insure the care provided the passengers upholds the high standards set by the district.

Full HD 1080p High DefinitionаVehicle Security Surveillance Camerasа

The availability of cameras of such high resolution may make it possible for fewer cameras to provide more coverage and details than a larger number of cameras. Often there are midship cameras installed in the bus to look at the back half of the bus from the front as current industry technology D1 cameras have a very short Depth of Field, meaning you can only see good details about 10’ from the standard 2.8mm or 3.6mm wide angle lens.

When using HD1080p systems with HD-SDI cameras, you will not require as many cameras as the images are 4x clearer, so even the front camera can be zoomed to see the rear of the bus. Conversely the rear camera is often just used to record activities going on in the last 3 rows of seats, and while it is pointed to the front of the bus you really cannot see any details as again the Depth of Field is short only about 10’. When using the HD-SDI cameras you will now be able to see much more detail in the front of the bus and in some cases you may not require the camera over the drivers shoulder that would document any inappropriate contact between the driver and a child.

Wheel chair lift buses also require a separate cameras to record the activities of lift and lower of children to insure it is performed in a professional and safe manor. The standard front and rear SDI cameras will again provide so much Depth of Field that the Wheelchair lift camera can usually be eliminated.

Some Stop Arm Camera solutions employ 5 - 7 cameras on the outside of the bus in a box, all aimed to specific target zones or travel lanes for cars passing the bus. All 7 cameras can be replaced with 2 SDI cameras one facing front and one facing rear that can not only capture the car tag of the vehicle passing the bus, but can also capture the drivers image to help document they were the actual driver of the vehicle. Again the ability to zoom into the image and still have a clear image will provide a reduction in cost by requiring fewer cameras to provide the same coverage capabilities. As fines and penalties for Stop Arm Violation can be considerable, including loss of driving privileges or jail time for repeat offenses, those charged with these citations will often contract legal representation to have the charges dismissed and in these cases especially the more usable video evidence available the better.а
