Smart dot / Transit card

Smart dot
Smart dot

We sometimes notice the elderly or the visually impaired using transit systems.

Smart dot informs you of a bus’s direction, information about the route, and the location of the bus’s arrival.

Smart dot has two main modes: universal mode and Braille mode. The universal mode is suitable for the elderly with relatively poor eyesight as well as people with poor vision.
The Braille mode is for the visually impaired who can’t see at all.

A transmitter, installed on the bus as well at each of the bus stops, provides information to users via Wi-Fi, and helps them reach their destination quickly and accurately.
