Connexxion was looking to replace the existing pickup devices in buses, which were too expensive in purchase and maintenance.
New and improved NFC readers
A joint design effort between Connexxion and Ximedes led to an innovative concept of an internet based solution with security and business logic implemented in a central back office using cheap NFC readers to communicate with the OV-chipkaart.
The first solution Connexxion decided to install in their buses is the order pickup system through which passengers can pick up their OV products in a bus. Our system is compliant with the applicable SDOA regulations of Translink Systems.
After finishing the development of our software and NFC readers, we successfully passed the security audit of Translink System and received the certification for the OV PUD. Connexxion expects our solution will significantly lower the exploitation cost of the required pickup devices in their buses.
Innovatief, pragmatisch, flexibel en gericht op samenwerking
