W8160 contactless terminal for AFC-compatible with all e-tickets@Watchdata

Inter-city train has witnessed a leap as cross-district economic communication develops. People come and go every day from one city to another. Most of them may hold several all-in-one cards of different cities or all kinds of bankcards. Every time when they are buying the train ticket, they might ask themselves, "Why can´t I use my all-in-one cards or bankcards to buy train tickets? Why I can´t just tap and go when I am taking a train?"

By embedding W8160 terminal into AFC, the AFC will be able to accept contactless payment by the e-train ticket, all-in-one cards from different cities and also bankcards.
