Event payment system

The customer’s challenge

Tactile Events wanted to create a event payment system that uses RFID technology to recognize the user and consequently validate the payment and update the balance. Such a product would be able to reduce waiting times and increase revenue significantly.

ABA Electronics’ contribution

ABA Electronics designed, developed, and produced the electronic hardware. Special care was taken in developing a product with reliable RFID communication and low-power usage. Unique in this project was that the RFID tag must be read behind a display, a custom designed antenna made this possible where standard solutions would not suffice due to the metals used in the display.

Result

Instead of long waiting lines that affect revenue, events can now rely on Tactiles event payment system to do payments fast, easy, and secure. The low-power usage makes it possible to use the device for an extended period of time in which the reliable RFID communication ensures that all tags are read quickly and securely.

Technology

RFID, USB-C PD, Lithium battery.
