Public Transport: Ticket Machines & Passenger Information
Public Transport represents one of the most complex set of systems related to monitoring and management of remote assets. In other Implementation Guides we have looked at the IoT/smart cities implementations relating to the buses, trains, trams and other vehicles involved in providing connected public transport. On the other side of the coin are the information and management systems related to the overall running of the public transport systems. These include ticket machines and payment facilities, passenger information screens, and access control. These tend to be comprehensive integrated schemes, which involve more than what would be traditionally thought of as core Internet of Things.
In this Implementation Guide we examine the key trends associated with the implementation of these types of schemes, with a particular focus on a number of case studies: London’s Oyster system, Sydney’s Opal Card, Tyne & Wear Metro, Deutsche Bahn’s DSA system and the Hong Kong MTR.
