Real-Time City Taxi Ride Sharing

Authors(3) :-Nandini Shende, Prof. M.S. Khatib, Prof. Farheena Shaikh

This Project is designed to create a Real-time taxi ride Sharing Application. It works by accepting a real-time ride requests from the passengers sent through smartphones and schedules proper taxis to pick them up via ridesharing. In this application, we have introduced the concept of offer and seek request through which the rider will seek the request and driver will offer the request to the riders/passengers. The monetary constraints of the application are to provide benefits for both passengers and taxi drivers, passengers pay less amount compared with no ridesharing and get compensated if their travel time is lengthened due to ridesharing, taxi drivers will make money for all the detour distance due to ridesharing. This paper gives an overview of the taxi-sharing service, key algorithms for dynamic rideshare matching processes.
