Bus Watcher

Comet actsoftWhere’s that school bus and how fast is it going? The Mobile County Board of Education can now know where every one of its 650 school buses is, thanks to a GPS-based system that relies on Actsoft’s Comet Tracker software from AT&T. Each of the district’s buses is continuously monitored for its position, speed and whether it’s on the route’s approved roads. Position readings are sent to the school every 30 seconds, reducing fuel costs and enhancing safety.
