Intel China Joins Hands with Ecological Partners to Create an Automatic Fare Collection System

Published: 4.15.2024

The digital and intelligent transformation of rail transit has increasingly become a construction direction that many cities are competing to promote. Intel has joined forces with Huaming, Ruibao Zhilian and Yumai to create the Automatic Fare Collection System (AFC) solution to identify palm vein characteristicsThis technology is applied to urban rail transit scenarios to achieve technological innovation in rail transit automatic fare collection systems and assist in the construction of smart transportation. 

Xie Qingshan, industry sales director of Intel Network and Edge Division in China, said: "Future-oriented smart urban rail transit systems are an important part of smart cities. Intel is deepening the ecological construction of urban rail transit and connecting upstream and downstream ecological participants and build an integrated smart urban rail transit solution, promote the in-depth implementation of cloud computing, edge computing, Internet of Things, artificial intelligence and other technologies, help users improve transportation efficiency, maintain safe and orderly operation of urban transportation, and generate more innovative application results. " 


As an important part of the transportation system, rail transit has important advantages in improving traffic efficiency and promoting urban economic development. Among them are transportation hubs responsible for passenger entry, exit, transfer, and other functions.  


In order to manage passengers and regulate their entry and exit, an "automatic ticket checking machines" will be introduced. With the development of mobile Internet, near-field communication and other technologies, automatic ticket gates are integrating more digital functions to speed up the efficiency of passengers entering and exiting the ticket gates and provide convenience for more passengers, which has led to the emergence of the AFC system. 


Compared with traditional verification methods, palm vein feature recognition is more efficient and can effectively solve problems such as unstable mobile phone network and low battery shutdown that may occur with QR code recognition and other technologies.  

It can also prevent risks such as QR code theft and improve Security of user funds. Yumai palm vein feature recognition consists of two parts: vein feature extraction, encryption, compression, and high-speed matching of massive features.  


Intel will continue to build on its excellent end-to-end technology, powerful underlying computing power and rich product portfolio, and work with Huaming, Ruibao Zhilian and Yumai to cover all aspects of terminals, edges and clouds to promote the wisdom of China and the world. Innovation and application process in transportation field.
