MOSCOW, July 29 (Itar-Tass) - Moscow’s metro will soon be equipped with devices reading data about mobile telephones of passengers. These devices will be part of the intellectual security system, which is already being installed in the Moscow metro, Andrei Mokhov, the chief of Moscow metro’s police, told Monday’s issue of the Izvestia newspaper.
According to Mokhov, the key task of this system is to trace stolen phones. Experts however say its use can be much wider - to trace all passengers without exception.
“The system will operate in the following way: when a passenger enters the zone of coverage of such device - its radius is about five meters, the system will register a SIM card with a certain number. If this card is on the list of stolen cards, the system will automatically trade its movement and transmit information to an officer on duty,” he said.
