Automatic gates that use QR codes to grant access to passengers will soon be deployed at the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (CSMT) in India for passengers traveling on long distance trains, a recent news report has been able to suggest.
Shalabh Goel, Divisional Railway Manager, CR said the main aim to install automatic gates is to control overcrowding on the platform and passengers with QR code will only be allowed to enter. “By scanning the QR code printed on tickets or code received on mobiles,the passengers can enter through the flap gates at the station,” he said.
Railway officials said introduction of these gates would be helpful during limited operation of train services. “Implementation of controlled gates is possible now when there are less trains operating with low crowds. The study will further help determine how access control can be implemented once train services resume,” he said.
Meanwhile, CR also introduced QR code reader at CSMT and 14 other suburban railway stations, and also increased two suburban services on its Harbour line that provides rail connectivity to Navi Mumbai.
