Boca Raton, Florida (PressExposure) July 14, 2011 -- We all know that the traffic on the road can be breath-taking especially in the peak time of 8-9. This is because every school opens at that time.
Many children travel as pedestrians to the school, as their homes may be close to their schools. So, to keep every student safe the school has to create a travel plan and submit it to the Road Safety Team. Auto Data Software [http://www.tranzactis.com/industries/automotive_industry.aspx] creates a safe system for their travel.
For every school that need to make a travel plan, they will need to take a survey of all the students which provides detailed information about them, on how they go to school and get back home. In most places they follow the writing on paper, and then entering the details into a computer. But as the records increased, it got difficult to maintain. Hence the Road Safety Team began to make use of an Auto data system. Most often when the school managers submitted the sheets to the Road Safety Team, it would take a long time to process and get back to the school. So, even the authorities at the school felt that the new system was a good introduction.
The system consists of a camera that is installed in front of every school area. This is attached to scan able office software. This system records the person and his information through the camera, and it also records the mode of transport of the child. The result of the scan is printed out as a four page report for each school.
These papers are ready made records that the school can take and enter their bar code number and maintain for records. Based on these details alone, will the school make arrangements to be taken for a safe travel to and fro from school?
The forms nurtured with the school number are sent back to the Road Safety Team so that they can automatically form a database from it, analyze the results and try to plan for making it safer traffic.
With an Auto Data system, most parents also feel that the system of decision takes lesser time. Hence this is preferred in many countries worldwide.
