Prediction-based optimization for online People and Parcels share a ride taxis


One of the major problems faced in the urban environment is the efficient public transportation of people and goods. Clients make a call to the company to request a transportation service for people or parcels. A good transport scheduling will bring better profits to companies while satisfying people demands and reducing negative social impact such as traffic jam and pollution. We extend the work in [10] on a people and parcel share-a-ride taxis transportation model and propose algorithms to schedule taxis that exploit prediction on requests in an online scenario.
