RFID Based Smart Ticketing Card for Local Trains

Generally in railway stations, we have long queues particularly in local train stations in metro Politian cities for getting tickets. Because of this people need to waste lot time. In order to avoid the above mentioned, you are going to build an innovative smart ticketing card for local trains based on RFID. With this project person who has the smart card, they can directly using the local train services without buying ticket at the time. But the fair for their travel will be collected at the end of every month.

RFID Based Smart Ticketing Card for Local Trains project Looking to build project on Access Control with RFID?:

Skyfi Labs gives you the easiest way to learn and build this project.

  1. Access Control with RFID Kit will be shipped to you (anywhere in the world!)
  2. Use high quality videos to understand concepts and build the project
  3. Get 1 to 1 expert assistance from Skyfi Labs engineers while doing the project
  4. Earn a smart certificate on finishing the project
You can start for free and pay only if you like it!

You will need Arduino to interface the Microcontroller with the RFID scanner and Wi-Fi module. Here everyone will have one RFID card. There will be RFID scanner in every railway station at entrance and exit. If anyone wants to enter or exit the railway station, he needs to scan his RFID. Once the RFID card is scanned then only the gate will be opened. You will programme the microcontroller in such a way that whenever a person scans his RFID card at entrance of the station, that station will be marked as Starting station and as soon as he scans his card at exit of the other station, that will be assigned as ending station. Now based on the distance between starting station, fare will be assigned. All this data will be stored in the remote server. At the end of the month, the entire fair can be paid at once. Once the fair is paid, the RFID will reset automatically.

Project Description:

  1. Arduino Uno: Arduino Uno: The digital and analog input/output pins equipped in this board can be interfaced to various expansion boards and other circuits. Serial communication interface is a feature in this board, including USB which will be used to load the programs from computer.
  2. Wi-Fi Module: ESP8266 Wi-Fi module is generally used to establish the wireless communication between the devices. But this module is not capable of 5-3V logic shifting and will require an external logic level converter
  3. Motor Driver: Generally the Arduino board is not capable of providing required amount of current for running the motors. So we use a device called Motor Driver which will provide sufficient current for driving the motors.
  4. Servo Motors: A servomotor is a closed-loop servomechanism that uses position feedback to control its motion and final position. The input to its control is a signal (either analogue or digital) representing the position
  5. RFID: Radio-frequency identification (RFID) uses electromagnetic fields to automatically identify and track tags attached to objects. The tags contain electronically-stored information.

Project Implementation:

  1. Interface the Arduino with Wi-Fi Module, RFID scanner, Servo Motor
  2. Power the components and upload the code
  3. Now Scan the RFID card at on station Entrance and Scan the RFID card at the exit of the other station
  4. Immediately the Starting and Ending station will be saved in the Remote server along with time and date
  5. Thereby you can test your RFID based Smart Ticketing system

Software requirements:

  1. Arduino IDE : You will be needing Arduino IDE software to write and upload the programming logic onto the Arduino Uno board
  2. Thingspeak : Also, you need to create an account in the ThinkSpeak IoT platform to integrate the system onto the cloud and store the data online

Programming language: Arduino Programming (C++)
