How to ensure safety around schools?

Safety systems are essential around schools. The presence of children (difficult to see, unpredictable behaviour, etc.) requires special precautions and the comings and goings of parents who park illegally increase safety needs.

The challenge

  • Manage the flows of different types of users at rush hours
  • Provide safe crossings and walkways for pedestrians, especially children
  • Prevent illegal parking
  • Limit the speeding near schools
