BankOnIP Patent Owner Invents The Crossarm Plus™

Stilwell, KS – June 22, 2021 – BankOnIP, a leading intellectual property broker, announced today The Crossarm Plus™.  The Crossarm Plus™ is a safety alarm system for school buses. It works in conjunction with an existing crossarm and includes electronic sensors for detecting movement and for viewing all danger zones in front of and behind the bus.

The alarm system includes sensors, motion detectors and cameras for viewing all areas around the bus (danger zones) and making sure no child is in the way after leaving the bus. This eliminates the chance of a child getting hit by the bus after exiting.
