Taxi and Ride Hailing Service: On-board Smart Car Terminal Solutions

With the changes of the times, people’s quality of life has been continuously improved, and the pace of life has been accelerated. The dependence on and demand for transportation has also been increasing. The number of taxis has grown rapidly in recent years. According to statistics from the Ministry of Transport, the number of taxis in China reached 1,037,061 in 2013, an increase of 1.24% year-on-year, and the taxi market size is expected to reach about 1.35 million in 2018. As an important part of the artery of urban transportation development, taxis can play a crucial role. Taxis are considered to be the “window” of a city, carrying the civilization of a city and influencing the image of a city.

How to solve the problems faced by the taxi industry and how to improve the overall service of the taxi industry have become the top issues that need to be solved by the management department. At present, the poor management of the industry has brought various problems: illegal operation, high no-load rate, traffic congestion, high cost, lack of real-time data, dispersed scheduling, and resource waste, which can hinder the development of the industry. Robberies, killings of drivers, and other vicious cases have occurred from time to time, which has seriously threatened the personal and property safety of drivers. The taxi industry urgently needs an efficient and safe high-tech management system to ensure the healthy and sustainable development of the taxi industry.

The overall framework consists of an application layer, a data layer, a network layer, and a terminal layer.

The application layer is mainly used by transportation management departments and dispatch centers.

The data layer is the data center where all information is gathered together, consisting of databases, communication servers, and external interfaces. All application systems share the data and resources of the data center.

The network layer consists of a GPRS wireless communication network and a wired network. The GPRS network uploads  vehicle location information, driver information and supervision data to the management center, and uploads these videos or images to the data center .

The terminal layer can transmit data generated in real time, such as on-board taxi terminals, IC card tapping information, vehicle location information, etc. to the data center of the management department through a wireless or wired network.

The competition in the taxi market is intensifying. In the era of mobile Internet, user experience and offline services have become long-term issues enterprises should consider so that they should continuously enhance their competitiveness. The installation of taxi management terminals is an inevitable trend for the future development of taxis in the direction of electronics, intelligence, networking, energy conservation, and environmental protection. Golong’s on-board taxi management terminal integrates all the functions of traditional GPS and on-board DVR, expanding the high speed video transmission function. It can meet the instant messaging requirements  of dispatch centers and taxis.

The installation of the Golong’s on-board taxi terminal can achieve the following effects:

  • 1.Electronic maps: Through electronic maps, real-time navigation, and reasonable scheduling, the no-load rate of taxis can be reduced. At the same time, the utilization rate of resources can be improved.
  • 2.Bluetooth for phone calls: The terminal has an “on-board phone” function. The dispatch center can remotely “call” taxis to facilitate the efficiency of taxi use, increase passenger satisfaction, and improve the image of the city.
  • 3.IC card function: IC card function has been added, which can display the taxi driver's name, license plate number, work number, supervision phone, and other information on the screen to recognize the driver’s identity.
  • 4.GPS positioning function and Android operating system: Satellite positioning and the Android operating system can flexibly support network operation platforms such as e-call, and Didi/Fast Taxi, and improve taxi operation efficiency.
  • 5.Video Surveillance: Videos are available at any time, which can be used for spot checks and supervision. It can also play a role in handling security incidents. The storage of video recordings can provide effective measures for the construction of safe cities and offer strong assistance for the investigation of public security cases.
  • 6.Advertising: The terminal has a true-color LCD display, touch screen, and voice broadcast function. And the advertisement can be put out.
  • 7.SOS alarm: Taxis can access the alarm signal. The driver can press the alarm switch in case of emergency. When the dispatch center receives the alarm signal, it will automatically alarm and retrieve the high speed  video of the taxis to get the latest information on the spot.
  • 8.Payment methods: Alipay, WeChat, UnionPay, QuickPass, and other payment methods are supported.
