LINK LANKA tackles digital taxi meter demand

With the government's plan to make digital taxi meters for three wheelers compulsory, Sri Lanka's LINK LANKA has stepped in to meet the country's requirement by producing these meters locally, Director of the company Thushara Kariyakarawana told the Business Times.

He said that LINK LANKA was established in 2010 as a digital taxi meter manufacturing company by designing and developing software and hardware in Sri Lanka with the assistance of two of his engineering colleagues. The special feature of the LINK LANKA digital taxi meter is that it indicates the speed, mileage and waiting time in addition to the taxi fare.

He revealed that the meter will get automatically locked, if the owner fails to pay the installment on the stipulated date, because it is programmed in accordance with the pin number given to the buyer.
The company is now using Japanese technology in its manufacturing process, and this has enabled them to bring their product to international standards, he said.

"The special features in our Link Digital Taxi meter are patented, and the industrial design is registered under our name," he disclosed. There are 470,000 trishaws in Sri Lanka, of which 4,000 are operating meters.
