Demand Supply Oriented Taxi Suggestion System for Vehicular Social Networks with Fuel Charging Mechanism

Authors(2) :-Selvi C, Keerthana D

Data mining depends on large-scale taxi traces is an important research concepts. A vital direction for analyzing taxi GPS dataset is to suggest cruising areas for taxi drivers. The project first investigates the real-time demand-supply level for taxis, and then makes an adaptive tradeoff between the utilities of drivers and passengers for different hotspots. This project constructs a recommendation system by jointly considering the profits of both drivers and passengers. At last, the qualified candidates are suggested to drivers based on analysis. The project also provides a real-time charging station recommendation system for EV taxis via large-scale GPS data mining. By combining each EV taxiís historical recharging actions and real-time GPS trajectories, the present operational state of each taxi is predicted. Based on this information, for an EV taxi requesting a recommendation, recommend a charging station that leads to the minimal total time before its recharging starts.
