How the system works
'Detector' consists of a camera watching the ticket stamping area which sends an alert when it spots a suspected fare-dodger going past. This alert is sent to mobile terminals as a sequence of images just a few seconds after the user in question goes through.
An inspector equipped with a mobile terminal (with the “Detector” application installed) receives the alert and decides whether to intercept the suspected fare-dodger. If they do, they stop the person identified in the image and ask them for their ticket or travel pass. If the ticket or pass has not been stamped, is not in order or the person simply has no ticket, they are fined.
The system also represents a management tool, as it automatically generates statistics on fare-dodging in real time so that their development over time can be monitored.
