DEVELOPMENT OF A RAILWAY-TICKET SYSTEM USING NON-CONTACT IC CARDS

The ticket system employs frequencies in medium wave hand to mediate data exchange with IC cards, allowing commuter-pass users to pass through ticket gates with the same ease as when crossing through previous manned gates. The commuter simply shows the pass, IC cards have a larger storage capacity than passive magnetic cards and can perform arithmetic computations, so that a single card can perform functions of both a commuter pass and a stored-value ticket. This will allow passengers traveling outside their regular commuting destinations to have their fare adjustments performed automatically when passing through the fare adjustment wicket.
