The aim is to minimize the risk of accidents and to “drive” users within the foggy area, encouraging them to reduce speed to match the low visibility. This system consists in apposite lighting posts placed on the carriageway side. It also aims at avoiding other risks, such as the formation of queues and traffic slowdowns in particular.
Conduent have launched its Conduent Seamless™ Transportation Solution, its next-gen approach to secure ticketless public transport payment by smartphone. The launch follows a successful nine-month pilot of the technology with the local transport authority Valence Romans Déplacements (VRD), in the city and area of Valence, in south-eastern France.
Operators simply install Near Field Communication (NFC) tags provided by Conduent on their transport network. The user downloads the app onto their NFCenabled smartphone and registers with Seamless to activate their account. To travel they simply tap their smartphone on any Seamless NFC tag. During the tap the tag creates and stores an encrypted transaction and relays it to the smartphone. Billing is processed automatically at the end of the month, based on the number of trips completed on the various transport providers.
