Such achievements prove that in the ticketing area, which has been expanded in a targeted manner in recent years, init enjoys a leading position on the competitive North American market. We want to assert and expand this position with further innovative products. The next step will be for passengers to purchase and pay for their tickets by showing their hands. This vein identification system is being developed by our subsidiary iris in Berlin. This will create a next generation of ID-based ticketing systems.
Our assistance system for vision, hearing or mobility impaired passengers is another example of our innovative power. The ASSISTIVEtravel app offers needs-based support for this group of passengers. The highly successful MAVIS pilot project in Singapore has since received numerous awards and is being increasingly offered in Europe. A fully new approach based on innovative technologies is also being used for the passenger guidance system that we are currently developing for high-traffic transport systems, for example in Asian mega cities such as Hong Kong. Here, passengers waste a lot of time because they gather in certain sections of platforms and trains, while other parts are almost empty. Our solution already shows on the platform where there is space. This helps passengers to position themselves in the right waiting areas in front of coaches with free spaces before the train arrives. If we manage to save just seconds at these stops, the transport company can save millions by better utilisation of the existing infrastructure.
A completely new challenge for transport companies is the integration of the electric vehicles that are becoming more popular worldwide as integral parts of climate protection programmes. As a pioneer and sole provider on the market, init is capable of offering a comprehensive system solution comprising all operational processes of the application of electric buses.
