Zydus School of Excellence (ZSE) has been one of the most prominent schools in Godhavi, Ahmadabad. Spread over 9 acres of, ZSE Godhavi comprises of the pre-primary, primary, secondary, and higher secondary sections, housing over 1000 children. The school runs its own fleet of busses that transits students to and fro the school, and of late the management has been looking for a way to secure and manage its bus services more efficiently.

Mission

The Zydus school busses run long haul to pick up and drop children from different corners of the town. Delays in pickups and drops often become a matter of concern for both parents and school authority.

Confronted by the safety of its students while on their way to and fro the school, ZSE realized its busses needed surveillance for a more secure and reliable transit. Moreover, having its busses monitored would help them keep track of the behavior of the vehicle/ driver and keep a check on any discrepancies therein.

Solution

A total of 33 busses ply every day to transport ZSE students from their homes to the school and back. Having surveyed the busses, and the kind of routes that they take each day, a comprehensive solution was designed.

Each bus was fitted with 2 high resolution analog cameras, installed at its entry and exit points, and a CP PLUS state-of-the-art MDVR with HDD for recording. Ideal for mobile surveillance, CP PLUS MDVRs offer tamper proof, shock proof, and anti-vibration features, courtesy their unique rugged design, for worry free recording. These MDVRs are further GPS enabled to tag video evidence with the current location. Also included in the solution is enterprise-level data management software to monitor and manage end-to-end evidence.

The challenge however was the short time within which the project needed to be delivered, also subject to the availability of the vehicles. Limited access to electricity also posed a significant challenge, requiring the use of special battery operated tools. 

Impact

The solution offered by CP PLUS completely satisfied the surveillance demands of the school management: the management was able to track the movement of all their busses at all times easily. Implementing these solutions not just ensured that the busses were punctual, but also kept a track of the students, driver behavior and anyone other than the designated people within the vehicles.

The project was challenging with a very short TAT, and the dependence on the availability of the vehicles. However, the project was delivered within the stipulated time frame, and the results thereafter satisfied the customer, thereby making the project a success.” Mehul Goswami, Addon Technology.
