Delhi Transport Department is working on a QR code system to keep track of autorickshaws and cabs on city roads, according to a report on NDTV.com.
The report states that QR code stickers on the vehicles will enable passengers to access the details of the driver which they can share with others via their smartphones. The QR code stickers will also provide details of the GPS installed in the vehicle.
According to the report, there are nearly 90,000 autorickshaws and 60,000 cabs on the city’s roads but only around half have GPS. A senior transport department official is quoted as saying that mandatory installation of GPS would help the department watch the routes taken by the vehicles.
