Advanced School Bus Design


Currently aside from bubble wrapping the kids ... it a hazard getting them to school.... so there are a few modifications we would like to present as advancements in transporting the precious cargo.....




























By adding a secondary driver to the School bus the safety is improved greatly. This is attainable by then converting off the fuel based systems to a fuel less electric system. The adaptation, then with improved safety, will not require the expenditure for the fuel to then allow  financial redistribution also adding a job. This allows for the bus upgrade by then redirecting the cash flow into equity instead of vaporizing it as fuel....


The upgraded bus will also come equipped with a video connectivity system that the children can plug into a video device to watch the surroundings while they remain in the seats safely .. the seats then also with full retaining  four point safety belts....


The design then being 2 row seating with bucket seats aligned to the center with isles upon each side of the seating.  This also required more buses but yields a safer transport mechanism.


The reason for redundant drivers is medical emergencies do occur so the adaptation then in logic should be implemented.


The  "roll bar" system will also continue to the protect the  "upper deck" driver from injury the top support members the of solid steel then wrapped with a carbon graphite composite to increase their strength .. for most automotive designs things like adding weight then becomes an issue as the vehicle would take more fuel then reducing it's success in the market place..... however with the adaptation of fuel less electricity  "active" electrical production weight does not become a cost prohibitive issue ( ie. the heavier a car the more fuel.... making it less attractive to the consumer...... we have avoided this to then not compromise safety...)


Also the placement of the drive system then also having a lower center of gravity and a correct weight distribution in regard to the position upon the chassis then to equally divide the distance to correct weight distribution, (  ie... from from to center of mass and from aft ( rear ) of the bus to the center of mass  ( within the chassis ) then will provide correct handling of the vehicle .


The "nose" of the vehicle then a shock absorption systems allowing greater impact resistance than standard or current models as the engine in most school buses is in the front and transmits shock at greater intensities.  The "wash board"  carbon graphite composite will also be incorporated within the  "nose" of the vehicle to then aid with the assistance of a spring dampener system to reduce the intensity of a frontal impact.


The "washboard" composite then acting also a shock baffle, (  ie many individual layers in thermo-setting resin then an offset additional wash board laminar composite allowing space between the final " block" piece).  Total mass to act as bouyancy flotation ie. will cause the vehicle to float ....the flotation mass also then insulating the under-carriage / chassis, to required thickness to give the vehicle a stable float effect.


The the "wash board" the repeating... within the then formed cavitation when the wash board is assembled offset ( ie apex joined to apex forming a square / diamond shape cavitation ), the may be filled with a rigid foam.  The carbon graphite washboard  will then force deflect and shatter force the to lessen the mal-formity of its steel rigid support system.


The dual transference drive shafts also then have shock dampeners with in the "drive line" upon each drive shaft.


A  hydraulic shock absorption hydraulic piston then wrapped by a tension spring that will contract when loading yet remain as a dampener in the drive line then splitting to solid rigid drives shafts. The chassis is also in the same fashion with a compression spring system between the drivers cab and the passenger compartment the with the shock spring dampener system  within the chassis members ( rails ) .This then reduces the transference of force from frontal impact greatly. The forward  ( frontal impact ) "shock deflection" system depicted at http://www.designdeskinc.com/multi-purpose-electric-vehicle.html


Two of the systems then connect the aft wheels and the front wheel assembly.


Redundant heating systems and on board distillation and dehumidification systems powered by fuel less electricity.


The emergency exit also has a center full length door to accommodate the wheel chairs. The stairs are removable...


Redundant illumination upon all lighting systems including cyclops break display.


Heated review mirror  and camera blind spot cameras....


Force shield wind screen then also augments the wind shield wipers... also the venting in front of the wheels at high displacement, to reduce the chance of hydro planning.... when breaking or in motion...


Since the school bus is seat belt equipped, also will be a seat belt indicator for each seat also displaying upon an indicator panel in both drivers positions if the seat belts are securely affixed. A weight sensor  ( ie. sensor  with system display will know and indicate  if the seat is occupied and requires the seat belt affixed / latched....causing a warning lamp and a audio tone to alert the drivers if an occupied seat  required buckleing of the seat belt is required).


Sure heated seats too...


The door system will then also be contained with in the safety systems circuits with motion detection systems upon the doors to prevent them from closing accidentally (  door closing  via manual actuation then to prevent an accidental closing of the door... ie the motion sensor will lock out  / prevent the door from closing until the

operator ( drivers ) reset a switch .


The exterior system of cameras will aid the drivers the guide the vehicle to then display the blind spot.


Since this vehicle is at an increased  forward height the total will be less than a semi truck then at 12' (feet ) and

6"  ( inches) tall and  at the maximum and 80" wide. The scale of placement in reference to the depiction may be adjusted ( just stabilizing the concept ..... a low bridge indicator system will then also be able to reference the G.P.S. navigation system to cause alarm if approaching a low bridge and be able to slow the bus to a stop automatically ...


An active radio height detection system will also then use  directional transmission and signal analysis ( bounce ) to warn of low bridge and slow the bus to a stop if crash hazard is detected.. so a javelin is not necessary....


Additionally be be placed upon the upper deck a fulls span impact bumper to keep the top cab from any accidental impalement due to low bridge...  also with expansion springs then mounted in shock absorption assembly then union mated to the roll cage
