The Modularity of Vix Pulse

Luke Pollard, Head of Engineering at Vix, explains how the modularity of their Pulse Automated Fare Collection platform allows it to adapt to meet transit agencies’ needs.

What is modularity and why is it important in an AFC system?

Modular software systems comprise a number of separate parts – independent, interchangeable modules that deliver specific value. In the world of automated fare collection (AFC), modularity means decoupling a traditional fare collection system. 

Its component parts, such as fare validators, a payment service provider, fare engine, customer service portal, and reporting suite, are broken apart. Some or all of these modules can be assembled to meet the specific needs of a transit agency.
