Eurotech wins transport system contract

Eurotech, a supplier of embedded technologies, has accepted a $10m (£6.6m) contract to supply embedded computers to Cubic Transportation, a provider of automated fare-collection systems for public transport.

Destined for use in the smart-card ticketing system on the transport system of a major European capital, the contract will see more than 20,000 units installed in buses and station gates throughout the network.

Each unit will interface directly to a smart-card reader and relay passenger and journey information into the fare-collection system.
