TaxiGO is an application inspired from the practices of the Moroccan drivers. And taxi drivers do not know all the address of the city, by cons, they know the majority of the interest point.
What it does
Taxi GO is a apps to help Morocco’s taxi drivers fill seats, or to help passengers enjoy shared rides with faster, safer, and more cost and time efficient journeys.
How I built it
Native Android to access the functionality of the phone.
Using Google Places for a list of locations (point of interest) based on the location of the user.
Challenges I ran into
Help riders choose their taxi co-passengers, as well as where riders are picked up (on route v. via detour). Improve safety for women riders - by offering a way to ride only with other women, etc
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
The proposed solution does not use cartography.
What I learned
The taxi-sharing problem is difficult to design in a short time.
What's next for TaxiGO
Integration of augmented reality to identify the taxi in the most dense place, and give the user a unique experience
