I was talking to a guy from LinuxCare (used to be a big
company in the days of the bubble) at OLS. They're doing the
same thing with school buses, so the school/parents know
where the kids/buses are in real time. Each kid has a card
(rfid?) that they wave at a reader as they get on/off.
The bus sends back data every minute or so (cell phone?)
telling the school where it is and giving an inventory of
They also have a cam on board taking shots 15/sec showing
that a kid really did get on and off and which will transmit
in real time (driver presses a button) if there's some sort
of altercation on board (kids get rowdy, hijacking).
