E-Ticket Germany gets faster RFID cards
ZeitControl cardsystems GmbH, a developer of smart card operation systems (OS), is contributing the BasicCard RFID to a project run by the Association of German Transport Companies (Verband Deutscher Verkehrsunternehmen = VDV) – which will distribute over 8 million e-tickets in the next 4 years.
The e-ticket is a contactless payment system for the local public transport. ZeitControl, as OS provider, together with Samsung Electronics, developed a flexible, cost-effective and fast running BasicCard applet.
The ticket using ZeitControl’s applet makes travelling quicker and safer without having to deal with different card systems.
