NVision Solutions Teams with High Schools Students to Develop More Efficient Bus Routes

South Panola High School Students Team with NVision Solutions To Develop More Efficient Bus Routes

Innovative Idea Saves School Time and Money

NVision Solutions, Inc., a cutting-edge provider of geospatial technology and an Enterprise for Innovative Geospatial Solutions (EIGS) cluster member, is proud of its role in supporting Mississippi’s aspiring members of the geospatial community.  South Panola High School students have been working with NVision Solutions to develop more efficient bus routes.

The buses will be tracked in real-time, permitting immediate analysis of route efficiency.  As patterns emerge, district officials will be able to determine the best method of increasing efficiency and decreasing fuel costs for the school district.

NVision Solutions is providing technical support, software, and hardware, including a tracking device, to help the students get their project up and running.  The students including Annah Bailey, Jenny Flint, and J.P. Wallace have been working under the guidance of their technology teacher, Donald Downs in coordination with Zack Watts, NVision Solutions Senior Software Developer.  Watts is a former resident of Batesville, where South Panola High School is located.

In addition to saving money for the school district, the innovative idea of bus route tracking earned the students a well-deserved, first place finish in the Environmental Challenge competition at the Technology Students of America State Convention.

Socorro Harvey, President of NVision Solutions, Inc. is pleased with the enthusiasm of the students.  “We like to encourage future members of the geospatial technology community, especially those in our own state.  Mississippi has a bright outlook, and we are pleased to help in any way we can,” said Harvey.
