Components and use
Fare Evasion Sensor
The iFairPlayer Fare Evasion sensor will be installed directly over the gates. The sensor includes a camera and can detect unwanted behaviours like tailgating and jumping and can also count all passengers enabling measuring of passenger flow on each station. Each fare evasion incident will be sent to a control system for further processing of statistics and notification to guards.
The mobile application is user friendly and is built for fast retrieval of nearby incidents. The app let guards handle multiple incidents and makes it easy to locate and recognize suspects. Built-in functions for checking out fare evaders and register when a fine is issued allows efficient bookkeeping and monitoring.
Each installed location can be controlled and configured through a central management system. The management system shows operational status on each location and also provides overview and statistics of fare evasion. This provides management with a near real-time view of the situation, and can be used to tune and optimize resource allocation.
Optimal use of iFairPlayer
iFairPlayer is a decision support tool. The system efficacy depends on actions implemented on each location. Such actions typically include guards, iFairPlayer signs and iFairPlayer alarm on the turnstile (optional).
The system will provide a statistical overview of where and when the fare evasion problem is more prominent, enabling very focused deployment of guards at the right place and at the right time. Targeting the main problems, will over time build up a strong preventive effect.
Current staffing is sufficient.
Routines for occasional use of the mobile device will be implemented, using the current staffing. After the system is introduced, no extra staffing is necessary.
As metro companies around the world are loosing hundreds of millions of US$ as a direct consequence of fare-evasion, Jarbtech is addressing and solving this problem offering iFairPlayer, an anti fare-evasion system detecting and alarming when fare dodgers are passing through turnstiles.
