CABS WITH SMART METERS PUT INTO USE

THE first batch of 12 cabs mounted with Internet-based smart metering devices were put into use by Shengang Taxi Service Co. yesterday.

The smart devices, featuring functions such as fare calculation, facial recognition and rider assessment, mark the upgrade and transformation of the city’s cab industry.

Tests showed that the distance discrepancies of the cabs running for 11 kilometers, 30 kilometers, and 60 kilometers were 0.6 percent, 0.41 percent and 0.35 percent, much lower than with traditional meters.

If the discrepancy reaches a certain level, the system will automatically sound an alarm and record the data.

The meter is more reliable as its chip system contains data that cannot be easily modified, Shenzhen cab administration said at the launch ceremony yesterday.

The device also can adjust the charging standards automatically once the terminal receives instructions from pricing authorities. The terminal accepts multiple payment channels such as Alipay, WeChat, bankcards and Shenzhentong cards.

The new meter is cost-competitive as it is half the price of a traditional meter, which cost 1,000 yuan (US$147).

Shenzhen taxi administration said more than 10,000 cabs will have the smart devices installed before the end of the year.

There are currently around 18,000 cabs running on the city’s streets.
