Abstract: The advent of Internet of Things(IoT) has provided boundless opportunities in solving real world problems in practical as well as robust approaches. We propose a system, using BLE, to build a safety scheme for concerned parents regarding their respective children to ensure safe to-and-fro commute from home to school and back. Using an Android app, the bus unit will be used to detect when a child boards or leaves the bus. These events trigger a notification messages with relevant information communicated to the parent app as and when the tag interacts with the bus unit. The system is a mobile-based and web-based database-driven application that facilitates status reporting of children to authorized personnel.
