Transit Protector is RoadMetric’s hands-free solution for protecting the lives of passengers on streetcars and school buses. Provide true deterrence, reduce accidents, and catch criminals with these two special configurations of Enforcement Deputy.
Too often do impatient drivers try to pass a school bus that is loading or unloading schoolchildren on a busy street. Student Guardian is a vehicle motion detection (VMD) camera system that captures video proof of drivers who ignore the stop sign and put kids at risk. Using ANPR and GPS, Student Guardian automatically identifies the offending vehicle, attaches the exact time and place to the video, and prepares a traffic ticket for officer approval – no action necessary.
What Student Guardian does for school buses, Tram Guardian does for streetcars. In many cities, passengers need to cross one or more busy lanes in order to board a streetcar – and the traffic laws that require the other drivers on the road to stop are not very well enforced. The Tram Guardian VMD camera system detects even the slightest movement of any vehicle that has not come to a complete stop in the no-passing zone. Using ANPR and GPS, Tram Guardian automatically identifies the offending vehicle, attaches the exact time and place to the video, and prepares a traffic ticket for officer approval – no action necessary.
Both versions of Transit Protector are available with an optional alarm system, to warn the boarding or disembarking passengers when their lives are in danger.
