School bus operators carry the most precious cargo – children. Sadly, each year children are injured, or worse, in accidents while boarding and leaving buses. Rostra is pleased to announce the Rostra Student Detection System, a system utilizing the latest technology to help ensure children’s safe arrival at school and home.
The Rostra SDS is a motion-activated detection system that uses reflected radar waves to detect a moving target. When a target, a child, is detected within specified danger zones in the front, rear, and sides of the bus, an alarm sounds to alert the driver, and corresponding LEDs on a display panel indicate the target’s location by zone. The system can also include a RearSentry Rear Obstacle Sensing System, installed for rear coverage when the bus moves in reverse.
