Development of Touchless Ticket Gate Frontier Service Development Laboratory

Development of Touchless Ticket Gate

Since Suica was first introduced in 2001, it has become possible to pass through ticket gates simply by touching them. In order to provide even greater convenience, we are currently researching and developing ticket gates that can be passed through without touching them using a smartphone inside the user’s bag or pocket.

This system consists of a ticket gate antenna and a ticket gate, and uses special wireless communication methods to limit the signal area and prevent false detection from users passing through adjacent gates. This allows users with dedicated smartphones that are compatible with the system to pass through the ticket gate without touching it.
