Advanced Technology Comes To UAE’s School Buses

Advanced Technology Comes To UAE’s School Buses

Dubai's Fancy Transport introduce RFID and GPS tracking to their school buses fleet.

Plus Aziz

Many schools in Dubai and across the UAE provide buses to their students. Fancy Transport, the second largest operator of buses, was the first to introduce a GPS tracking system, enabling parents to monitor and pinpoint where their kids are during their commute to school.

To combat growing concerns regarding molestation, bullying, and other conditions on-board school buses, Fancy Transport is introducing a wearable RFID technology (to give parents a log of when the students are on and off the bus), scannable ID cards with embedded RFID chips (for older kids). They have also installed CCTV cameras and motion/temperature sensors to give the parent holistic data on their child’s commuting experience.
