I’ am currently in search for a title for my degree final year project.
I’ve chosen the following topic and would like to get more ideas from you guys.
Development of a software/website to track taxi location.
GPS location tracking of Taxi; so as for customers to identify the closest taxies available near to their location and directly being able to call the taxi driver- eliminating the middleman (taxi service centers)
The application itself is going to be a website so as users can connect with their PDA/windows mobile when they are out on the road.
Users can view the available taxis on the map and when click on the dot (taxi), a pop up shows the driver details with contact info.
At first I planned for each taxi driver to have a GPS tracker, the tracker id is saved at the backend database with the driver details.
But the problem occurs, how to identify if the taxi is occupied or not; to overcome this problem, each taxi driver would have a PDA/windows mobile (with GPS functionality) and they can select if the taxi is available or occupied with a program on the mobile device.
Can anyone give any more ideas or if this project is a possible project.
