We have recently partnered with VE Commercial Vehicles Limited (A JV between Eicher Motors Ltd. and Volvo Group) to ensure the safety of children from point of boarding till drop-of. Being a pioneer in the safety, we have yet come up again with this initiative to provide a safe and secure transportation to school-going children by providing telematics solution. The customers have the option to purchase the Eicher range of school buses equipped with an integrated safety solution developed by MapmyIndia. The solution provides a comprehensive safety veil for children right from the point they board the school bus till the time they come back home safe & sound, and everything in-between.
Child safety is a primary concern for parents as well as school authorities. With both parents working there is always an anxiety and concern about the little ones going to school. Our child safety solution has been especially developed to address their concerns. We are happy that a leading automotive company like VECV has joined us in our mission to secure school going children. A new breed of highly secure and connected school buses have been developed, synergizing VECV’s expertise in manufacturing high quality school transport vehicles and MapmyIndia’s experience in developing, integrating and implementing state-of-the-art safety solutions. This, we are confident, will prove to be a big boon for the schools and a matter of satisfaction for parents.
Enabling a Connected School Bus
The integrated safety solution deploys state-of-the art GPS tracking, AV and Internet technologies to build a foolproof child-safety system. It addresses most safety and compliance concerns of parents as well as the school. The solution incorporates Vehicle tracker, RFID tags for children, on-board cameras (in front and the back of the bus) and DVR along with GPRS connectivity for live two-way communications. These will track and report child’s movements during school hours. Parents will be sent important alerts of various activities of the child during the day as they happen. In case of emergencies immediate alerts will be sounded for swift response.
How it works
We have undertaken a unique initiative to secure cab passengers in Delhi NCR. In a first, our Locate app will be given to all passengers using Snap Cab, an economy cab service based out of NOIDA. With this the Snap Cab customers can instantly share their location with the near and dear ones once they enter the cab. And as the journey proceeds, the passengers can be live tracked by the contacts of their choice.
Snap Cab is India’s first cab service to offer this dual security net to its customers. Their cabs are already GPS enabled and now with MapmyIndia Locate app the customer is empowered to take further security measures as she deems. “Safety is a big concern for everyone. No matter where we are or what we are doing, well-being of our loved ones is a worry that always lingers in some part of our mind. At MapmyIndia it has been our endeavor to leverage GPS technology to better the lives of Indians. I am happy to see that Snap Cab, by offering Locate app to its customers is addressing one of their major concerns. I look forward to a long and fruitful partnership,” says Rakesh Verma, Managing Director, MapmyIndia.
“It is a matter of joy for us to tie-up with India’s leader in GPS navigation & tracking technology. MapmyIndia Locate app is helping us address the security concern of our passengers in a hassle-free and convenient way. I feel that that security as a USP will not only earn us the goodwill of the customers but also contribute strongly towards the brand equity of Snap Cab,” says Ashutosh Balwaria, Founder, Snap Cab.
Although no one expects an untoward situation to develop but it is good to be armed for the contingency. Every second is critical in case of an emergency. MapmyIndia locate ensures that during such times you always have access to the right people. They would instantly know how to reach the incident spot. A person can add ten emergency contacts, who will receive access to live tracking of the cab movement.
