AFC

Automated fare collection (AFC) system means automatic payment way for public transportation channel such as bus or metro using RF(Radio frequency) contactless smart card - an automated version of manual fare collection by cash. AFC system is generally classified into four levels as follows.

General Structure

  • Level 4(Center)
    Basic Information Management, Fare Management, Reload Management, Equipment Management, Administration, Transaction Data Process, Infrastructure

    Level4 is a data management system. It receives the reload, fare information from the transportation channel(bus/metro) and settles the received data. It also involves in not only managing devices, transaction history but also communicating with each layer to administer the necessary data.

  • Level 3(Center)
    Data Collection System

    A data collection system is situated in Level3. The transaction data is gathered by bus depots / metro stations and uploaded to the center system. The center system also transmit the data to each bus depot and metro stations.

  • Level 2(Device)
    Card Reader, Top-up Device

    Level2 is devices relating to the transportation channel(Bus/metro etc.) and the top-up. Bus drivers and passengers could utilize the devices for fare collection, top-up of the card balance, general bus operation and more. Card readers transmit/receive transaction/operation data by communicating with card layer and data collection system. A balance recharger enables the users to reload the card balance and make a payment. And both manual/automatic types are available. They transmit/receive transaction/operation data by communicating directly with each card and center system.

  • Level 1(Card Media)
    Card, Smart Card Management System

    Level 1 consists of two parts. A card which is a payment method and SCMS(Smart Card Management System) which manages whole life cycle of the smart card. The card communicates with the card reader and stores the processed transaction data. SCMS supervises the entire operation of the card from generation to disposal.
