InterMotive designs bus seat belt warning system

InterMotive Vehicle Controls of Auburn, California, has announced its release of Safe-T-Seat, a seat information tracking system.

The system anticipates rulemaking proceedings that would require belt use warning systems in buses, the company said. Safe-T-Seat would track the occupancy and belt status of passenger seats and provide audible and visual warnings to the driver.

The system, compatible with Freedman Seating Company products, 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.

Safe-T-Seat will be available for purchase first quarter of 2020.
