Incheckning på färja med NFC eller 2Dstreckkod (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

The increased use of smartphones in recent years has opened up the opportunity to

modernize manual operations, such as checking-in at ferry terminals and airports.

Many airlines have been using 2D barcodes for a while and are planning to support

NFC in the coming years. Destination Gotland wants their passengers to be able to

check-in at their ferry terminals with both of these technologies.

In this thesis, I propose a system where passengers are able to check-in with their

smartphones, present a prototype and analyze any advantages. Wait times are

estimated with queueing theory and the results show that the wait times for

passengers will decrease with the proposed system.

Abstract [sv]

Det ökande användandet av smartphones under senare år har öppnat upp möjligheten att modernisera manuella operationer, så som incheckning i färjeterminaler eller på flygplatser. Många flygbolag har redan använt 2Dstreckkoder ett tag och planerar nu att införa stöd för NFC inom de kommande åren. Destination Gotland vill att deras passagerare ska kunna checka in på deras färjeterminaler med båda teknologierna.

I detta examensarbete föreslår jag ett system där passagerare kan checka in med sina smartphones, jag presenterar en prototyp och jag analyserar dess fördelar. Kötider uppskattas med hjälp utav köteori och resultaten visar att kötiderna för passagerarna minskar med det föreslagna systemet.
