Train ticket tracks kids

Another story relating to increasing use of RFID - especially in Japan where it is becoming more common in relation to child welfare.

Three railway companies in the Kansai region of Japan are about to test a service that uses their RFID-enabled train ticket gates for tracking kids.

When a kid passes through RFID-enabled train ticket gates using an PiTaPa train pass, which is an RFID card, an SMS message is automaticaly sent to their parents.
