|I have been looking at the issue of smart cards for the last 2 years as Philadelphia will be purchasing new electronic meters. I have wanted to install a smart card program with an open system in order to be able in the future to integrate it with other regional users (potentially transit, toll roads, garages, and even pay phones and vending machines. I believe the smart card needs to drive the process rather than the meter equipment or you will be stuck with a system which only works in the meters and will never work with anything else. I will be happy to try and provide other info depending on what you are looking for.
