Parkeon’s success in the pilot Project in Metro de Madrid
Last September Parkeon installed two ATVM prototype terminals in the station of Moncloa, in Metro de Madrid, as part of a pilot project. These terminals were developed especially by Parkeon so that Metro de Madrid could study and evaluate subjects such as: accessibility for DDA, resistance to vandalism and fraud, system reliability, easy maintenance, modular design to allow replacement with spare parts on site (allowing easy and fast replacement of worn out parts to increase the machines’ daily running time) and high technology used to fight against vandalism and fraud, all targets of this Operator.
Likewise, the pilot project allowed for collecting statistical data on the use of the machines by end users through a centralized ATVM management system. This information made possible both the evaluation of payment methods on different time slots as well as available change since the prototypes hold an intelligent return currency system to maximize change return transactions, even at critical times like rush hours.
Staff from the station in Metro de Madrid and technical staff from Parkeon supervised and operated the terminals through the COMMIT, the Metro de Madrid management department in charge of trouble reports within their facilities.Metro de Madrid showed its satisfaction with the results as the objectives have been reached and the equipment meets future challenges like contact less and EMV technology implementation.
