  智能检票系统可能预示着车站闸机的终结 日立正研制无感乘车新技术

  日立铁路(Hitachi Rail)消息:随着开发和试验的新技术,票务闸机可能会被取消。 目前正在测试的原型技术可以利用火车上的传感器,在乘客上车时检测他们智能手机上的应用程序。 这样就不需要把手机从口袋或包里拿出来,也不需要设置车站闸机,这样就不用在闸机或售票机前排队了。 乘客将自动支付正确的票价,日立已经证明了智能票务技术,以确保乘客不会被多收费。 该技术目前将在意大利特伦托接受特伦托运输公司(Trenito Transporti)的严格测试,日立希望将其引入英国,用于公共汽车、有轨电车和列车。 日立铁路董事总经理卡伦博斯韦尔表示: “这项技术有能力改变全国各地的公共交通,从农村公交车到市中心火车站。常见的旅行烦恼——在售票机前排队,或者试图找到最便宜的车票——可以不用掏口袋就能解决。 “我们现在开始测试这项技术,并研究一款应用程序在一个国家的最广泛覆盖的可能性。例如,一名乘客可以使用该应用在一天之内乘坐当地城镇的公交车和全国其他地方的火车。 鲍斯威尔女士补充说: “这项技术有潜力使所有乘客更容易乘坐公共交通工具。 “我们相信这对运营商来说也是一个好消息,因为这种简单易用的支付方式可以吸引更多的人使用公共交通工具。” 它是如何运作的有待尝试 日立正在探索通过传感器信标技术推进智能票务的不同方式。 例如,一种方法可以是传感器检测安装在智能手机上的旅行应用程序,让乘客无需出示纸质车票、银行卡或智能卡就能进入火车或公交车。 这种传感器有可能在旅途的两端探测到乘客口袋或包里的智能手机。 通过在站台或车辆入口处安装智能传感器,可以消除闸机周围的长队和瓶颈。 这项技术可以应用于所有形式的公共交通,包括公共汽车和有轨电车,使上车时间更快。 日立(Hitachi)长期以来一直是智能票务应用的引领者,这些应用可以连接到你的支付卡上。例如,2001年,日立软件推出了一款在日本各地使用的卡片(在东京被游客称为企鹅卡)。 意大利新概念验证工作的结果将有助于为今后应用这项技术提供最好的方法。 让公共交通更简单、更安全、更便捷 这项新发明可以在全英国实施,并通过以下方式鼓励更多的人使用公共交通: 消除铁路售票机和票价混乱。只有25%的用户了解正确的车票类型,解决方案可以让更多的人信任乘坐公共交通工具。 宣传巴士使用简单。随着公交出行次数的下降,无票乘车的无缝方式可能会鼓励更多的人选择这种交通方式而不是汽车。 -改善残疾乘客或携带幼儿的通道。取消了在公共汽车上出示实物票的需要,为行动受限的乘客提供了更大的自由。 日本技术重塑英国交通 除了建造世界著名的日本子弹头列车外,日立在智能票务技术方面也拥有丰富的专业经验。该公司的智能旅行卡在日本每天被100种不同的交通工具使用超过5000万次,甚至可以在旅游景点和商店使用。 该公司已在英国东北部投资1亿英镑,建立了一个最先进的火车工厂。到2022年,英国将运营来自该公司的286列车,每列都拥有先进的智能技术,以提高性能和乘客体验。

  Smart ticket overhaul could signal end of the line for station barrier

  Ticket barriers could be removed with new technology being developed and trialled by Hitachi Rail. Prototype technology currently being tested could use sensors on trains to detect an app on passengers’ smartphones as they board. There would be no need to remove the phone from pockets or bags and no need for station barriers, signalling an end to queues at the barrier or ticket machine. Passengers will be automatically charged the correct fare, and Hitachi already has proven smart ticketing technology to ensure the passenger will not be overcharged. The technology will now undergo a rigorous testing programme for Trenito Transporti in Trento, Italy, with Hitachi hoping to bring it to the UK for use on buses, trams and trains. Karen Boswell, Managing Director, Hitachi Rail, said: This technology has the ability to transform public transport in every corner of the country, from rural buses to city centre train stations. The common travelling woes of queues at ticket machines or trying to find the cheapest fare could be solved without even needing to reach for your pocket. “We are now beginning to test this technology and looking at the possibility of one app working across large stretches of a country. For example, a passenger could use the app to take a bus in their local town and a train elsewhere in the country all in one day. Ms Boswell added: “This technology could have potential to make public transport more accessible for all passengers. “We believe this would also be good news for operators, who can entice more people to use public transport thanks to this simple-to-use payment method.” How it could work pending trials Hitachi is exploring different ways of advancing smart ticketing through sensor beacon technology. For example, one method could be sensors detecting a travel app installed on a smartphone, allowing a passenger to enter a train or bus without presenting either a paper ticket, bankcard or smart card. The sensors could have potential to detect the smartphone in a passenger’s pocket or bag at both ends of the journey. Large queues and bottlenecks around ticket barriers could be removed by installing smart sensors at the entrance to platforms or vehicles. The technology can be applied to all forms of public transport, including buses and trams, allowing faster boarding times. Hitachi has long pioneered smart ticketing apps which are connected to your payment card. For example, in 2001 Hitachi software launched a card used across Japan (known by tourists in Tokyo as the Penguin card). Results from the new proof of concept work in Italy will help inform the best ways to apply this technology in the future. Making public transport simpler, safer and more accessible The new innovation could work across the UK and help encourage more people to use public transport by:

  -Removing rail ticket machine and fare confusion. Only 25% of users understanding the correct ticket types, Hitachi’s solution could see more people trust taking public transport.

  -Promoting buses as simple to use. As the number of bus journeys fall, the seamless approach of walking on a bus without a ticket could encourage more to choose this form of transport over cars.

  -Improving accessibility for passengers with disabilities or carrying young children. Removing the need to show physical tickets on buses gives greater freedom to passengers with restricted movements.

   Japanese technology shaping UK transport As well as building the world famous Japanese bullet-trains, Hitachi has significant expertise in smart ticketing technology. Hitachi’s smart travel cards in Japan are used over 50 million times a day across 100 different modes of transport, and can even by used on tourist attractions and in shops. The company has already invested significantly in the UK by establishing a 100million state-of-the-art train factory in the North East of England. By 2022, the company will have 286 trains running in the UK, each boasting advanced smart technology to improve performance and passenger experience.
