  • Publication number: 20190362565
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides a method and device for in-vehicle payment. A face image of an in-vehicle user and a geographic location of the in-vehicle user are received at a point of a ride route traveled by a vehicle occupied by the in-vehicle user. An image set associated with the geographic location is received from an image database using the geographic location of the in-vehicle user. The image set includes face images of a plurality of users. The face image of the in-vehicle user is compared with face images in the image set to determine an identity of the in-vehicle user. A fare deduction account corresponding to the in-vehicle user is identified using the identity of the in-vehicle user. A fare corresponding to the ride route is deducted from the fare deduction account.
