Milestones in transportation

With the acceleration of urban integration, major cities have successively started the development of urban card projects, and contactless smart cards have been widely used. The contactless smart card contains a micro antenna, which is used to read, write and exchange information without contact. The emergence of non-contact technology makes it possible to apply smart card technology in the field of transportation. In many applications in the transportation industry (such as buses, subways, ferries, highway toll systems), it can significantly save time and improve efficiency.
