GPS vir skoolbus
« on: February 20, 2017, 05:00:03 pm »
Ons laerskool beheerraad het dit goed gedink om die skoolbus aan 'n paar ouers oor te dra. So far so good.
Die ouers van die kinders wat busry het die behoefte aan 'n GPS sodat hulle kan sien waar die bus nou trek - Kaapstad se verkeer kan rof raak. Oom Steyn sÍ sy BC (before computers) foon is perfek en hy soek nie een van hierdie "smart phones" nie.
Wat kan mens in die bus installeer sodat ouers deur middel van hul eie slimfone kan uitvind waar die bus op die oomblik trek (sodat hulle hul kinders betyds kan oplaai?)

Buy the cheapest 2nd hand Iphone you can get and give permission on it to anybody else with a iphone in "find friends"
One of the reasons why my whole family switched to iphones, I can always see within meteres where my kids are.
This is just one way of doing it -  the android crowd will most probably give you some options as well.....

Example:

WhatsApp is going to launch a location/tracking service very soon where all persons within a group can give authorisation for other members to track/trace them in real time.
Cheap older Android phone with a small bit of pay as you go sim card should do the trick.
If you look on Google playstore you will also be able to find free real-time tracking apps

life360 app on android also works well.
your next issue will be that the parents will be able to track where the other oarents are. but I guess that can be put off within the settings as well.
but agreed, dump an old smartphone in the glovebox on a charger and restart it once a month

Thanks. I guess one would have to find an app working across platforms as parents will not migrate just because of a phone in a bus...

Hi.

Jy praat seker van n Opsporing stelsel en seker nie rerig n GPS nie?

My GPS wat ek in die Kombi het werk nie as n Opsporing stelsel nie.

Ons Maatskappy het maar die Find Friend app op al ons maatskappy fone laat opsit.

'n Opsporingstelsel ja☺
Oom Steyn het nog 'n Nokia, nie 'n smartphone nie - dink nie hy kan 'n app aflaai nie. Die netwerke het mos 'n "please find me" funksie gehad - wonder of dit sal werk?

Daar is mos honderde vehicle monitoring devices. Is hulle te duur?

Maybe this is why?, if not a problem, excellent choice!

Miskien moet die ouers wat die funksie wil hÍ saamklub en vir Oom Steyn 'n cheap Android foon koop en dit deel maak van sy job description om
dit saam te dra. :lol8:

ek dink nie die issue is watse foon die oubaas gebruik, mens kan mos 'n foon vir die bus kry - die issue gaan meer wees, kan location deur baie partye na 'n enkele foon gedoen word, sonder dat alle fone visible is vir mekaar?
as almal almal kan sien, gaan dit nie aanvaarbaar wees nie, veral as daar 'n paar mooi mammas en ander jagse pappas is nie

Fit one of these:
https://www.electromannsa.com/collections/vehicle-accessories/products/live-web-based-vehicle-gps-tracker

Parents can log in to a web page and view where the bus is at any time. a History is are also kept of the buses routes, so can go back a couple of weeks where the bus was when and for how long.

Thanks DasBoxer. Have you used one of these before, and does it work? If it does it will be perfect for tracking the school bus.
