Partnership on rear vision systems for buses
Synovia and Safety Vision are cooperating on an integration between bus fleet management system and pedestrian avoidance reversing cameras.
Safety Vision and public transport fleet management specialist, Synovia Solutions have formed a partnership to create user-friendly and intuitive compatibility between Synovia’s fleet management tools and Safety Vision’s Observer digital video recorders.
Explaining the advantages of the alliance, Safety Vision’s Vice President of Sales, Randy Wise said, “Synovia users will now be able to take advantage of the camera views and video recording provided by the Observer series and our Observer users have a great new option for fleet management. The benefits that Synovia and Safety Vision provide are extremely complementary.”
One of the innovations with the new combined approach is the fact that rear facing cameras can be displayed automatically on the Synovia tablet when the bus is placed in reverse, avoiding collisions and protecting pedestrians. Additionally, Synovia’s software will provide the health status of the Observer system, complementing their maintenance notifications that allow fleet managers to be proactive about potential problems.
Synovia Solutions offers a variety of fleet management products including GPS tracking, engine diagnostics, the advanced Comparative Analysis system and the innovative “Here Comes the Bus” application. Safety Vision’s popular analogue Observer series uses solid-state storage media and threaded mobile-rated connectors to reliably record up to four camera channels. Compatibility between the two products is facilitated by a new connector on Synovia’s tablet which makes installation a simple task.
“Customers will get significant benefits from our integration with Safety Vision’s technology,” said Synovia Solutions’ President, Jon King. “In addition to an enhanced user experience, we have also created a number of programmes to make it easy for customers to acquire our combined products.”
Synovia and Safety Vision will demonstrate their combined products to fleet managers and administrators at the forthcoming North American School Bus EXPO Conference and Trade Show (STN EXPO) in July 2016 in Reno, Nevada, and the National Association for Pupil Transport (NAPT) Conference and Trade Show in November 2016 in Kansas City, Missouri.
