ously. It’s up to application and service providers to turn the data from buses into information and insights that ultimately improve the safety and efficiency of school bus operation and experience for drivers and passengers. Tat only happens through thoughtful design and careful data analysis.


STN: Taking this a step further, what are your thoughts on the


role or feasibility of digital event recorders and continuous loop data for school buses? McKerlich: I think they provide a wealth of information that can improve the safety and efficiency of school bus operations. With insights from digital event recorders, fleet managers can take preventative and proactive measures to address drivers oper- ating buses outside of standard operating procedures. Addition- ally, fleet managers can gain visibility into engine diagnostics and management to keep the vehicles operation and well maintained. With this information they can make informed maintenance and operational decisions. Digital event services also provide opportu- nities in terms of rider management such as ‘What’s going on in the back of the bus?’ We’re working with Continental to explore this space and identify opportunities.


STN: Finally, with the Paul Lee law in California, are you sensing any trends toward child detection requirements in buses


from other states? How does Z Pass play into that? McKerlich: We aren’t aware of any pending legislation at this time, but whenever there is a tragedy, school districts should re-ex- amine their standard school bus operation procedures, whether it’s the law or not. We believe performing child checks in the back of the bus is something all fleets should do. We have three hardware solutions and service that ensure that drivers are doing this import- ant inspection to protect the safety of their passengers. Z Pass is a great product for tracking when students get on and off the bus, but in terms of the Paul Lee Law; EVIR is the Zonar solution that addresses it. EVIR is on the Zonar 2010 handheld device and both the 2020 and Connect tablets enabling each device for pre- and post- trip inspection reports. It can also importantly be easily configured to be used for child check with the placement of a RFID tag in the back of the bus. We are seeing a lot of districts both in and out of California configuring their systems for child checks this way; drivers are required to go to the back of the bus, scan the tag and acknowledge that there aren’t any students there before they leave the bus. Additionally, the driver and fleet manager get a digital record of that journey and trip, including when and where that inspection takes place.


STN: Tank you. ●
