S1 Gard

The S-1 GARD Danger Zone Deflector is a public transportation safety device consisting of a curved polyurethane guard, mounted in front of the right rear wheels of transit buses, designed to deflect a person out of the path of the wheels in order to prevent injury or death. It is currently installed on bus fleets in major cities such as Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., Stockholm, San Francisco and Baltimore, among others.

The S-1 GARD is recommended by the Transportation Research Board as a strategy for mitigating bus collisions with pedestrians, and has been credited by public transit officials with significantly reducing, if not eliminating, injuries and fatalities involving the rear right wheels of transit buses.

Barrier Receiver Management System

The Barrier Receiver Management System is a casted BASF urethane barrier. It is mounted under the body between the front wheel and the right rear wheel, acting as a barrier preventing roll over incidents. Future bus OEMs world wide will be going electric, making buses more energy efficient and quiet, adding more dangerous exposure on road ways.

Minimize Danger Zone:  MDZ Shield-R  &  MDZ Shield-F

The Minimize Danger Zone Shield (or MDZ Shield) is an affordable and proven new solution to eliminate the danger zone gap surrounding the right dual wheels of the school bus.

The “danger zone” refers to the area extending 10 feet to the front, rear and sides of the school bus, where children are at most risk of being hit by passing vehicles or by their own bus.

The MDZ Shield is a casted, high-performance BASF polyurethane shield that acts as a physical barrier in front of the rear dual wheels, designed to deflect a child out of the path of the school bus, preventing catastrophic injury or death. The shield is easily and quickly mounted to the side of the bus around the wheel well opening, lessening both material and labor costs while making it easily visible for inspection.

Consumeron, LLC, was founded in 2009, well before the arrival of the prominent players in today’s last-mile realm – ventures like Google Shopping Express, Postmates, and even Uber. The idea occurred to founder Mark B. Barron two decades ago, while gathering materials at Home Depot for his property management firm with his brother. “I asked my brother, ‘Why am I here? My time is too valuable,'” Barron recounts. “But if I hired someone to get things for me, they’d get the wrong thing. I wanted to find a way to see what they see.” Patent has successfully cleared the demanding scrutiny of the Alice Section 101 Patent Eligibility after 4.5 years.
