QR code stickers on cabs and autorickshaws would enable the passengers to have the details of the driver which they could also share with others through their smartphones.
It would also give details of the GPS installed in the vehicle. The details of driver and GPS will help in case passengers, especially women, face any distress while commuting in the vehicle, the officer said.
QR code stickers are two dimensional barcodes that bear the details of the product on which they are affixed or printed.
