RFID Based Public Transport Ticketing System

This project deals with the development and implementation of android phone application, which is more effective and simpler than current ticketing system. The “RFID based Public Transport Ticketing System” can be used easily anytime, anywhere and ticket will be available in the customer’s phone in the form of “RFID”. GPS module is used for providing validation of the ticket at the source and deletion at the destination.The process of standing in lines to book the tickets and after that carrying the tickets is curdled and hectic process, hencethis project is proposed as a solution to this problem. The main objective of this project is developing an android application so that passengers can easily book the tickets online directly from their smart phones and a message is send to their own phones, which is enough for travelling a desired distance. For security reasons the information about every user is stored in CLOUD which needs to to be accessed during each time while bookingticket for validation purpose. This change of paradigm benefits from the fact that cloud ticketing system can be accessed through the Internet, since they can be elastically grown or shrunk, providing easier scalability and high availability. The system provides two payment methods. Firstly, a customer can pay using their wallet and secondly user can request ticket checker to transfer some amount in the wallet. The information for each user is stored in a SQL database for security purpose. Also, the ticket checkersare provided with an application to search for the user’s ticket with the ticket number in the cloud database for checking purposes.
