Abudhabi launches app to track pupils on school journey
Abu Dhabi Education Council (ADEC) and Emirates Transport have launched Hafilaty, an app that enables parents to track their children to and from school.
The new technology is part of ADEC’s efforts to enhance safety in school buses following the death of a young schoolgirl in 2014.
Mohammed Salem Al Dhaheri, executive director of the School Operations Sector in ADEC, said the smart services of the project include tracking systems on a smartphone application that inform parents about the bus location, and the pick-up and drop-off timings.
As part of the initiative, Emirates Transport has installed advanced systems, including GPS tracking systems to locate the bus and NFC technology on students’ cards, state news agency WAM reported.
