    School buses have come under particular scrutiny after public outrage at recent accidents. Government regulations which took effect in April this year are forcing manufacturers to produce a new generation of buses for China's school children. School buses are defined as vehicles with more than seven seats carrying children to or from school, and other vehicles on the road must yield to them, according to the new regulations.


    Bus makers are stepping in to fill the need for safer buses in China, and the rush is on to provide features that their competitors don't. Higer has a computerized system which sends data about a bus's speed and location to a control center. The bus is also equipped with multiple emergency exits.
