Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS

Abstract

The project aims at the exploration of the fields of application for a microprocessor or a smart card for future individual and public transport. Improvements in administrative efficiency are principally recognised, along with improved service level and strengthened customer fidelity. Traffic safety and environment are also improved. Tasks involved in three phases are: firstly, presentation of systems concepts for applications; secondly, identification of areas of application, and assessment of technological development and standardisation needs; and thirdly, promotion of standardisation, preparation of field tests, and some preliminary studies of the two key problems of fund transfer and data access.
