InterMotive Vehicle Controls has developed Safe-T-Seat™, a Seat Information Tracking (SIT) system exclusively for Freedman Seating Co.
On the heels of proposed rulemaking proceedings to require belt use warning systems in buses, Safe-T-Seat offers a practical resolution. The SIT system displays and tracks the occupancy and belt status of passenger seats and provides audible and visual warnings for the driver.
The system will trigger an alert if an occupant sits but does not buckle or buckles before sitting. The system can also record and store data in case of an accident.
Each seat sensing module communicates wirelessly for up to three seating positions. It allows for an expandable system with up to 90 seats for larger vehicles. An alternate battery power option enables the system to be easily retrofitted on older vehicles.
Installation is simple with plug-and-play connections. A downloadable app lets the user custom configure the seating layout on the tablet.
