Abbotsford, BC – February 23, 2021 – Gatekeeper Systems Inc. (‘Gatekeeper’ or the ‘Company’) (TSX-V: GSI) (OTC: GKPRF) (FSE: 1GK) a video and data solutions provider for public transportation and smart cities, is pleased to announce it has been selected by one of the 10 largest school districts in the US to equip 40 new school buses with the Company’s Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) solution. The PaaS solution will be OEM-installed at the factory by IC Bus, who builds nearly 11,000 buses each year at their Tulsa, OK manufacturing facility.
Doug Dyment, President and CEO commented: “This is another school district customer who has chosen to have our PaaS solution factory-installed on their new school buses. Last July, we also announced that the 6th largest school district had chosen to have our PaaS solution factory-installed, also at IC Bus.”
The PaaS solution is centered around mobile data collectors that record and analyze video, audio, GPS location and data on the school bus, and becomes the on-board intelligence platform for future applications such as passenger counting, contact tracing and more.
Each bus will be equipped with wirelessly connected mobile data collectors, interior video cameras and exterior 360-degree cameras. The 360 Surround Vision Camera system provides a surround view of the school bus, and is automatically activated when the bus is reversing or making side turns. The surround view is displayed on a specialized rear-view mirror system allowing drivers to monitor school children all around the bus.
School districts are rapidly embracing video and data solutions on school buses to help provide a safer transportation environment for school children. Gatekeeper has installed more than 34,000 intelligent mobile data collectors and 100,000 video devices on school buses, for over 3,500 school district customers.
