17309/17310 Yesvantpur-Vasco: Yesvantpur Express
16543/16544 Yesvantpur-SSS: Hubballi-Yesvantpur Express

Reportedly, the HHTs will allow the on-duty TTEs to download the working chart on board, updating cancellations of tickets, empty seat allotment and RAC clearance.
The Indian Railway introduced Hand Held Terminals (HHT) to ticket checking staff as part of the national transporter effort to introduce digital initiatives. The first such HHT was introduced in Patna-New Delhi Rajdhani, where all the ticket checking staff were provided with the latest gadgets.
