Αn information kiosk aiming to provide passengers, who use public transportation such as bus and train, multimedia information about the destinations and intermediate stops of a route
Ticket Scanner is an innovative information kiosk aiming to provide passengers who use public transportation (e.g. bus, train, etc.) information about the destinations and intermediate stops along each route. The system embeds a small sized touch screen (e.g. tablet) and a special niche in which passengers can insert their ticket.
Through an integrated camera, the system scans the bar code of the ticket and presents information about the final destination of the passenger and the intermediate stops of the route. Specifically, as soon a ticket is scanned a preview of the destination area is presented on the display giving users the opportunity to extract further information, including a collection of photos, a weather forecast of the wider region, etc. In addition, any of the intermediate stops may be selected in order to view relevant information, such as an image gallery and descriptive texts with an emphasis on tourist and cultural attractions.
Ticket Scanner Kiosk is addressed to the wider public, including tourists and local inhabitants.
