Taxi / Auto Fare Meter



A taximeter is an electronic device installed in taxicabs and auto rickshaws that calculates passenger fares based on a combination of distance travelled and waiting time. It measures traveled distance and computes the fare accurately according to the fare rate prescribed by transport authority. Auto-rickshaws and Taxis are one of the most common modes of transport, in India, ferrying millions of passengers every day. Fare-meters on these vehicles have invariably tampered to over-charge. Existing meters calculates fare based on the rotations of the wheel of the vehicle. There is no such system available which can check whether calculation shown by the meter is correct or not. CreateAbyte provides a digital auto fare meter, designed with advanced micro-controller. It features facilitate convenience to both passenger & driver. It simultaneously displays the distance traveled along with the calculated current fare during the journey. It also displays the waiting time in minutes and updates the fare during the journey
