Default Tata SkoolMan: Telematics for school buses

Tata Motors has launched Tata SkoolMan, a telematics service for school buses, at the ongoing SIAM Bus and Special Vehicles Show. Tata SkoolMan will be a standard fitment on the Tata Ultra range of school buses and will also be available for fitment on other models of school buses in the after-market.

Here is a quick glance at the features incorporated in SkoolMan:

For parents:
  • Automatic SMS alerts to parents/guardians on arrival of the bus
  • Mobile application to track the school bus carrying their children, through a map on a real time basis
  • SMS-based query system to get notifications on the location of the bus
For schools:
  • Real time tracking of buses with a updates generated every 10 seconds
  • Notifications on instances of unsafe driving through a SMS or e-mail
  • Schools can stay assured of data security against any unauthorized access through 256 bit AES data encryption technique for data communication and dedicated server space for school data
  • Geo-fencing restricted regions to prevent entry of buses in zones that schools perceive unsafe for children

For Bus Fleet admins/owners:
  • Route management facility (define bus stops, create and manage routes) for planning and deploying the fleet in an efficient way
  • Engine idling monitoring tracks duration for which the bus was idling helps in minimizing fuel consumption
  • Fleet usage reports are generated, which can be analysed and used to optimise the performance of every bus in the fleet. The reports can be generated
    1. bus wise, route wise, bus stop wise or driver wise
    2. on daily, weekly and monthly basis
    3. for Single vehicles as well as fleets
  • Reminders for any bus related renewals
