EasyChair Preprint no. 10476

5 pagesDate: June 30, 2023


This paper discusses the development of an Automatic Fare Collection (AFC) combining the Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and Global Positioning System (GPS) technologies for public transportation buses in Dhaka, Bangladesh. The paper begins with an introduction highlighting the need for such a system due to the dissatisfaction of passengers and high fare collection. A literature review is provided, presenting previous studies and systems using RFID and GPS technologies. The methodology section explains the working principle, components, implementation, and experimental setup of the proposed AFC system. The report then presents a cost analysis and discusses the results of the project, highlighting its limitations. The paper concludes with recommendations for future expansion of the project and references used in the report. The proposed system utilizes RFID and GPS technologies to record passenger boarding and arrival locations and automatically deduct fares. The system eliminates the need for paper tickets, offers onboard ticket inspection, and can introduce spatial validation elements to enhance its usefulness.
