Integrated into a single package, the IVU.ticket.box is an interactive, on-board computer system for public transportation that prints tickets, scans barcodes, validates e-tickets, and provides a pay terminal to accept various fare payment types. The IVU.ticket.box offers enhanced features such as barcode scanning and smart card reader capabilities. The device was the recipient of an iF International Forum Design Award in 2010.
PHYTEC handled all aspects of product development including project management, software and housing development, and third-party test for conformance to VDV/VÖV and E1-manufacturing standards in Germany. PHYTEC has provided multiple generations of processor-based solutions to IVU that include the phyCORE-PXA270 and migration to various custom configurations of the scalable phyCARD-M1 (i.MX35) and phyCARD-XL3 (i.MX 6). These off-shelf subassemblies serve as the core logic in the IVU.ticket.box, IVU.box.touch, and other IVU end devices
Custom driver development was required to extend the functionality of PHYTEC’s standard Windows Embedded BSP on first generation systems. Enhancements included drivers for an on-board CAN interface, 11 simultaneous active serial interfaces with high data throughput, and specific AC97 audio requirements to divide the stereo channel into two individual audio channels. The current IVU.ticket.box runs a custom version of Linux.
