Local public transport is leading the use of NFC-enabled smartphones in everyday life

Every year, about 10 billion passengers use the local public transport in Germany, with the public transport companies earning ten to eleven billion Euros from fares. Two billion Euros of this revenue is already generated by selling eTickets. So, a huge share of the population, as well as tourists and business travelers, use RFID-technology – some of them daily.

eTicket technology brings more than just a switch from paper tickets to smart cards, with new developments bringing both challenges and benefits for the future

VDV eTicket Service is the operator of the VDV core application, which is now the standard platform used for eTicketing in Germany, benefiting millions of people mainly in urban areas. It sees itself primarily as the system developer, rather than administrator, and has new initiatives planned to allow for use of NFC smartphones, increased safety management and international standardisation. ‘RFID im Blick’ talked with Niels-Zeino Mahmalat, Managing Director at VDV eTicket Service, on the challenges and future for eTicketing systems.

What does make a RFID project successful? This question is inevitably at the centre of attention as soon as the use of RFID technology is planned. Not only the properly functioning hardware and software decide on the success of an RFID roll-out, but also the expertise of experienced system specialists. Thus, the RFID tomorrow 2016 opens a second forum for the first time at the Developer Day and puts integrators and system experts with their experience from realized projects on the big stage.

All lectures are spoken in English.

Affordable universal encoding

Compact personalization machines for the card and ticketing market are plentiful and packaged elegantly for the desktop market but their reliance on home-grown expertise in the form of encoders or print modules is often their shortfall. They are relatively simple to use but tend to be expensive to operate when considering their consumables – and of course the majority of them just cannot process paper tickets or cater for different MagStripe or RFID encoding schemes. Servicing of these units is also a factor not to be ignored – especially when considering the quality of encoding if it is to fulfill ISO standards, for example.
