Near Field Communication (NFC) Technology: The Future into Public Transport Infrastructure
Ms.Smita Chandurkar,Datta Meghe College of Engineering,Airoli, NAVI Mumbai-400708
NFC (Near Field Communication) is a young radio technology which finds special application in the field of mobile consumer electronics. In this paper a scenario for the integration of an electronic ticketing system into an existing public transport system based on NFC is introduced. NFC-enabled phone transactions can be used today with existing transport contactless infrastructure, requiring no additional investment. Improved traveler satisfaction is a major benefit that may be harder to measure but should be considered as a retention factor. The main aim of the proposed ticketing protocol system is to increase the chances of successful travelling in case of the payment done but ticket delivery failure.
NFC works with most contactless smart cards and readers, meaning it could easily be integrated into the public transit payment systems in cities that already use a smart card swipe . A key application of Near Field Communication (NFC) can be found in the field of Electronic Fare Management. In the proposed ticketing protocol we are implementing a ticketing system for local trains using the concept of secure (NFC) Near Field Communication.
