PROPOSING AN EFFECTIVE LASER-BASED ENTRANCE SYSTEM AT FERRY TERMINALS IN TANZANIA
Authors: Jailos Mrisho Nzumile, Ismail W. R. Taifa
Abstract: At one of the famous Tanzanian ferries - Kigamboni ferry terminal, it is common to find a long queue of people at the ticketing window and the entrance waiting for tickets to get into a lounge, respectively. At the tickets' window,one of the main identified problems is difficultness in picking tickets and time wasted during the printing process. Similarly, at the entrance, it takes an average of 12 seconds to scan a ticket due to systems' insensitivity. This study thus introduces a new system that would probably drastically reduce the time spent on two occasions. The system employs laser technology and non-paper-based tickets to save time by simplifying to processtickets, which will also increase the sensitivity of the system for saving time. The impacts of the proposed system will be realisedforthe entire communities by saving their time, government for effective revenue collection as well as a clean and safe environment by getting rid of paper-based tickets.
