The industry needs to respond to significant congestion in stations, particularly at gate-lines, which can lead to safety and crowd control issues, as well as revenue loss.
This innovation competition aimed to develop ticket detection technologies that will accommodate increased passenger numbers and avoid congestion at gate lines. Managing revenue protection is key to this challenge.
Three projects were selected for demonstration under this competition using different approaches: Bluetooth LE mobile device fare validation, biometrics for ticket detection, and on–board automatic ticket detection and payment.
