According data of the World Health Organisation a virus COVID-19 stays active on glass, plastic and metal surfaces up to 5 days. For this reason one way of virus spreading in transportation is via payment readers where passengers insert their payment cards or mobile phones.
An infected person can bring virus on them by touching a reader with his card or phone, and the phone as the main mean of communication among people, becomes a point of virus concentration from which it can further spread on hands and face of passenger.
The company TELEMATIC developed a patented technology of touch-less payment for transport which allows ticket paying with any smartphone at the cross of payment point at the entrance to a bus or underground while the phone can be situated in a passenger ´s pocket or his bag.
The technology is ready to a pilot use in real transport environment, in all kinds of city public transport including underground.
The technology is synergic and allows payments at parking lots, in car washes, for fuel at tank stations, driving on roads with fees (at driving through a toll gate at speed 30 km/h), payments for entrance into certain countries, providing of new services in fast food restaurants (McDonald‘s, Pizza Hut, etc.), control of elevators in hotels or large blocks off flats.
The system was professionally evaluated by the European Patent Office, the patent is expected to be issued in August or September this year.
