Here on our GPS tracking blog, we’ve often discussed the benefits of GPS tracking systems for kids, including GPS tracking for teenage drivers, GPS tracking for school buses, and GPS tracking systems for child security. According to a recent news article, daycares in Sweden are now utilizing GPS tracker devices for keeping track of students on outings.
Some of the GPS trackers used in Swededn are incorporated into special vests worn over each child’s clothing. The GPS tracking vests allow teachers to view all students on one screen and quickly be aware of students tempted to wander away from the group.
