Its becomes the neccesity to secure your students by RFID and GPS technology in schools

in School

It is really a tough task but I want to express, yes sometimes heart sinks when some news like the Van and child harassment incidents happened. And the most shocking thing is the facts that 50% of Indian children's faces that disaster. It is not acceptable, but what as a parent a human being do to resist these mishappening. If the answer is that we are helpless than it is not acceptable.

The emotional part I expressed and now its turn to look forward some possible solutions. People say that prevention is always better than cure. And now it's time for us to prevent these deeds happening in our child life. The first prevention which I saw as a possible solution is the increasing visibility. Schools need to update their technology infrastructure in order to enhance the visibility over child or student security. When child leave home in morning to reach school there must be a update been provided by schools as soon as the child reached the school, when the child is in school premises than also school must always been aware about the where about of students. During busing the location updates of students is also a helpful step in order to secure the way home.

Even the external environment is out of control so it must be a wise decision if some steps for school students security can be taken from school end they are necessary now. The thought of providing children's their space will be wise but the thought of securing their way is the today's priority.

Schools can use Called RFID and GPS based tracking system; the state-of-the-art monitoring system will already been adopted by many renowned schools and the process of adoption is still going on. "We have been working on this system for quite some time so children can be monitored to ensure their security and safety," said the manager, Agnicient Technologies Pvt. Ltd. A Noida (India) -based IT solutions provider, Agnicient Technologies Pvt. Ltd. will implement this automated Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and GPS-based student tracking system in the school's buses.

Agnicient Technologies Pvt. Ltd. uses a combination of RFID, GPS (Global Positioning System) and GPRS (General Packet Radio Service) technologies. RFID is a type of automatic identification system whose purpose is to enable data to be transmitted by a portable device, called tag, which is read by an RFID reader and processed according to the needs of a particular application. All the buses of schools will be equipped with RFID readers and each student will be given an RFID card (pictured) which incorporates GPS and GPRS technologies, with all the student's particulars printed on it.

Using the technology, the parents will get a text message every time the student gets into the bus and alights while going to the school from home and when returning. Alert messages will also be sent to the school authorities. "This technology will give peace of mind not only to the parents but also to us," said School principal, adding parents had been consulted with regard to the scheme and they had given positive feedback. "Parents were favorable with the system because ultimately it means security and safety for the students," he said, adding he could see that other schools could adopt it in the future.

Agnicient Technologies Pvt. Ltd. manager said the application software displays not only a real-time view of the location of the bus but also the student inside the bus at any point in time. "The system can be configured and could be converted into a smart card in the future to have other functions," Manager explained, adding RFID readers could be installed in other locations in the school as needed to further ensure the safety of students. He also said the text messages would be very specific.

For instance, if a child is still inside the bus five minutes after the vehicle's engine is turned off, a text message will be sent to the school authorities. It means that this system from Agnicient Technologies Pvt. Ltd. Will answer the question more prominently that "It's already 10 PM do you know where your child is??????????? But now every parent and school administration knows.
