EMV PCI ATM Industry essential guide

Zytronic announced its touch sensors have been specified for the user interfaces of IER's Autolib' electric car hire stations currently being deployed in Paris and 46 cities in the Ile-de-France region. The deal came through Zytronic's French distribution partner Eurocomposant.

Trials of Autolib' in the French capital began in early October 2011 with the intention of bringing about a marked reduction in the city's traffic congestion as well as curbing its pollution levels, the announcement said.

Both commuters and tourists will be able to go to an Autolib' station and use the automated payment system to gain access to an electric car. Then they can travel to their destination and drop the vehicle off at another nearby station where it is recharged for the next customer.

The user interface in each station is equipped with a 12.1-inch format ZYBRID PCT-based touchscreen made from 6mm thick toughened glass to ensure impact resistance. The anti-vandal and weather proof touchscreens feature an anti-glare treatment on the front surface to improve readability in direct sunlight and enhance the overall experience, the announcement said.

"Autolib' has the potential to change metropolitan transportation irrevocably and we are pleased to have played a part in it," said Ian Crosby, sales and marketing director at Zytronic. "PCT's drift-free operation and responsiveness in the most demanding environments, its resilience to the various forms of harm that can shorten the lifespan of other touch sensor technologies, plus crucially, its ability to be operated through gloved hands make it an optimal solution for this kind of application."
