Mobile County School District Selects Samsara to Increase Student Safety

Samsara, pioneer of the Connected Operations Cloud, today announced it has been selected as the Connected Operations Platform for Mobile County School District, the largest public school district in the state of Alabama. As part of its ongoing commitment to technology innovation, Mobile County Public Schools will deploy Samsara’s vehicle telematics solution and AI dash cams across their fleet of 1,300 vehicles to operate more efficiently and keep students safe.

Over the past two years, schools have been tasked with reinventing the education system as we know it. While many students are now back in the classroom, getting them to and from school safely and efficiently remains an ongoing challenge – especially as the industry continues to face a nationwide driver shortage. Now more than ever, school districts need technology that allows them to make data-driven transportation decisions, in real-time, to better serve their communities.

Mobile County School District maintains a mixed fleet made up of school busses and light-duty vehicles, such as cars, vans, and trucks. Ensuring students are safe from the moment they get on board a vehicle, to the minute they return home, is their top priority. This requires upgraded technology that can connect video-based safety data, vehicle location, maintenance diagnostics, and more to provide actionable insights. For the first time with Samsara, Mobile County School District has this real-time visibility and can better protect students as a result.

We’re confident that Samsara has the technology we need, and more, to innovate over time and we look forward to our continued work together.”
