Fares are usually calculated according to a combination of distance and waiting time, and are measured by a fare meter. This solves the arbitrary charging of passengers boarding taxi and different point. The fare meter consist of speed sensor, microcontroller (PIC 16F86A), power supply unit, display unit and input buttons to set the amount per unit distance. The speed sensor picks up signal from the rotating gear wheel which is interfaced with the microcontroller to compute the corresponding distance. The multiplication unit of cost per meters is (NAIRA) N 1.50 per meter, this provides the fare rate.
