Bus Inspections in Tennessee Now Mobile App Based

| December 3, 2014

When it comes to inspecting vehicles used for transporting children to school or day care in Tennessee, the state’s Highway Patrol has gone mobile – literally.

The inspectors now use a custom-developed mobile app to improve on the manual process of inspections, and a companion Web application for administration and viewing trends in inspections.

The Web application also supports vehicle owners, such as school districts and day care facilities, who can view inspection data that will allow them to be more pro-active in managing inspections.

Two state agencies, the Department of Education and the Department of Human Services, also have the capability to view summaries of school buses and day care buses, respectively. The mobile app, which inspectors carry to the vehicle sites, scans the VIN for identification, collects the inspection data, takes photos, and assigns the annual compliance stickers.

According to the users, the time saved by replacing the former manual process can be redirected to follow up and compliance efforts.

The administration Web application gives the Tennessee Highway Patrol the ability to measure inspections efficiency, and it also helps identify potential regulatory and compliance risks.

Reports can detail which areas of compliance are consistently in need of improvement so that preventive measures can be taken.

The mobile app and the Web administration application was developed by NIC, Inc.
