The ETMs offered by DIMTS
The ETMs offered by DIMTS are not just ticket-stub printing machines, as in conventional ETM solutions, but smart card enabled devices with inbuilt GPRS modules. The system is designed to transfer data from ETMs directly to the central server without being connected to the computers at the depots. This also allows for update of master data, configuration data and application in the ETMs over-the-air remotely and in real time. Since they directly communicate with the central system there is no requirement for computers and operators at the depots for the operation of ETMs.
The ETMs are also capable of validating smart card passes and doing transactions on smart cards. DIMTS' ETM System is infact, a stepping stone for a larger Automatic Fare Collection System (AFCS) project. Thus the ETM devices, its application and backend application have been designed keeping in view, the requirements of a typical AFCS.
DIMTS ETM system offers the following features
Online system:
  • ETMs communicate directly with Central System for data upload and download
  • Over the air configuration of ETM application, master data, route information, fares, etc.
