This preventive access control solution on train lathes integrates with QR code, limiting rush-hour entry and validating travel booking, in addition to allowing or denying the passage.

Indra Argentinian Amba trains

Increasing safety in the means of transport in times of pandemic is the objective of the system that the company Indra has developed for trains in the Metropolitan Area of Buenos Aires (Both) y así proteger a los usuarios y prevenir contagios que en su primera fase se ha realizado en 350 Lathes.

Indra's COVID-19 preventive access control system is complementary to current access lathes with transport card readers Climbs, integrates body temperature measurement, mask control and ticket booking validation via QR code to reduce the risk of contagion between passengers.

To reduce the amount of contagion in confined spaces, as in this case a train car, effective station and train access control systems are needed to ensure social estating and security.

Thanks to the Indra system it is possible to block the access lathes automatically when body temperatures higher than those indicated as healthy are detected or when a person who is not wearing the mask correctly is detected.

This new access control solution has a direct connection to the Amba database for checking the QR code needed to access trains at peak times and limited to workers considered essential.

Like this, Indra's system allows you to confirm your ticket booking in case of maximum influx times, in addition to corroborating whether they are essential personnel or not, denying or allowing passage.

The solution asks the traveler to show their booking to a tablet at the top of the access control lathe, then asks him to stand up to some 50 Cm. device, that measures its temperature and on a par checks the correct use of the mask with technology that combines facial recognition with thermal and visible light images with ultra-fast temperature controls. At last, allows you to pass the ticket with the Upload card and access.

In turn, is warned with sound alerts of enabled or denied access alongside visual aid for people with hearing impairment. In this way, the technology applied by Indra facilitates the correct verification of the status of passengers trying to access trains, improving safety.

Developed in record time, implemented system will help protect citizens and reduce the risk of contagion, as well as maintaining the greatest security, operation and quality of service of trains in the Buenos Aires Metropolitan Area, one of the world's largest rail networks, with more than two hundred seasons.

The technological device implemented by Indra in the AMBA to control temperature and masks is suitable, In addition, for the maintenance of security measures in any type of location where the level of capacity must be controlled, like other transport stations, Airports, Hospitals, Factories, schools or commercial buildings.

State-of-the-art technology

Indra's technology integrates the access control lathe validator system with its respective tablet, station hubs and switches.

The system incorporates an infrared temperature sensor, with thermal imaging technology, that captures different levels of infrared light and acts as a non-contact automatic thermometer, with a maximum of 10.800 measuring points and able to detect temperature differences up to 0.3oC and automatically select the highest.

In addition, combines thermal imaging with visible light technology, so the speed increases from four frames per second (Fps) that offers ordinary infrared technology to 25 Fps. It is also equipped with the latest anti-counterfeiting algorithm for facial recognition against almost all types of fake photo and video attacks.

Thermal imaging technology adopts a wide-angle camera that is suitable for monitoring both tall and low-stature people, who can recognize your authentication and measure your body temperature with ease.

A growing project

In the year 2016, Indra equipped its technology to control access and banknotes to the eight lines of the network the railway network of the AMBA, With 1.400 Lathes; 170 steps for access for people with reduced mobility; 200 Automatic contactless card reloading machines Go up, allowing access to all public transport; as well as 150 validators on board trains and 230 for the seasons, through which travel is collected.

He also supplied 160 on-site transaction hubs and 300 travel inspection terminals. The AMBA monitoring and control solution, that integrates information from different subsystems and enables service management, it was also developed and installed by Indra.

Its technology at the time streamlined the passenger collection and control process and helped reduce the risk of fraud in the use of the rail network. In this way, Indra strengthened its position as a provider of intelligent transport technology in Buenos Aires, where passengers, who perform more than 1,4 millions of trips on commuter trains, use the company's systems to access the network and pay for their travels.

Indra is one of the leading companies in Ticketing globally, with its own product and projects for transport systems such as those in Madrid, Barcelona, Amsterdam, Lisbon, Medellin, Santiago de Chile, El Cairo, Kuala Lumpur, Calcutta, Mumbai, St Louis, Austin or Mexico City, among others.

Its Mova Collect solutions facilitate the economic management of the transport service and have a clear impact on the quality of life of citizens, by making access to transport more convenient and easier, reduce time spent on payment and encourage intermodality, combined use of different means of transport.

Indra's revamped offer for transport, called Mova Solutions, covers the entire life cycle of projects: from engineering and consulting to collection solutions, operation and control, Security, communications and traveler experience.
