RTA - NFC Mobile App

For the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) of Dubai we realized a system that allows users of the Nol card (local smart card) to read and upgrade their Nol card themselves with their cell phone, this means that there are no longer any vending machine or service desks required. A mobile phone must be equipped with NFC (Near Field Communication) technology, and must also support communication with the chip of the Nol card (NXP Mifare DESFire EV1’s).

To make this possible, we deliver an NFC plugin that enables existing apps from the RTA functionality to communicate with the Nol card.

We also provided a cloud solution (back-end system) for the processing and security of transactions and the transmission of these transactions to the central systems of the RTA. With this solution, the following use cases are supported:

  • Enquiring the contents of the smart card
  • Upgrading the balance of the smart card
  • Transferring balances from one card to another
  • Registering the name of an anonymous card
  • Charging or renewing a travel product on the smart card
  • Payment for other services using the balance on the smart card
  • When performing any of these functions the card is always checked for validity and whether it has been blacklisted.
