S³ - School Safety System
Securing and monitoring road traffic around schools to provide the highest possible protection for our children
A study by the independent Belgian Road Safety Institute Vias (*) shows that 78% of accidents involving children and occurring during school hours occur within 300 m of the school and 5% in the school-specific 30 km/h zone. So, it is important to continue working on increasing the safety of children around schools.
Speed is the risk factor that weighs most heavily on the severity of injuries. But there are also other factors that influence the risk of accidents. For example, using a mobile phone while driving increases the reaction time by 30 to 70% and, consequently, the braking distance.
We offer a solution that aims to minimize this risk of accidents and drastically increase safety around schools. Thanks to our intelligent cameras, environmental sensor and our powerful M³ software, which centralizes all relevant data and manages variable message signs in real time, we can offer you a wide range of measures.
As we at Macq are very eager to help you protecting school children by increasing their safety, we are really looking forward speaking about your project and designing a solution tailored to your specific situation.
The "S³ - School Safety System" platform is perfectly equipped for:
Controlling average speed and other dangerous driving behaviors (double parking, overtaking, use of cell phone, seat belt violations, etc.) to encourage all users to follow the rules
Monitoring of temporary restricted traffic zones in which only certain vehicles can drive
Management of variable message signs (VMS) alerting road users to the presence of children during specific time periods
Stimulate good driving behavior thanks to the use of intelligent cameras
Monitoring "Kiss & Ride" zones and detecting road users who stay too long in these areas
Display meaningful statistics & information raising awareness of the risk of accidents involving children
Real time "Pedestrian warning system"
Modular & Easy to Implement
Scalable, Reliable & Redundant
Open System & State-of-the-Art Technologies
