Project name: YOUR TAXI FARE

Aakesh Kunwar & Prakash Pokhrel(Kathmandu BernHardt College)


Concept

The concept is to track the distance travelled by a taxi through GPS and then to take out the exact taxi-fare according to the distance travel and the cost that is define by the law. We all know that the people these days are being cheated by the taxi drivers and I think this app will prevent you from being cheated from taxi-driver. Using this app we can trace the real time location of an individual and then it starts calculating the distance travelled by the taxi until it reaches its destination. After it has reached its destination it will give you your taxi-fare which will be according to the law. If the taxi owner refuse to take the amount and start yelling at passenger then he/she can immediately press help button through which traffic will get notification about the situation and can help passenger.

This app also include features like easy routes, cost from one routes to another.

Target Audience


It will include all the people who has GPS enable mobile phone. People these days are being cheated and we think app like this will help to stop that.


Early Feedback

When we explain this concept to few of our teachers, seniors and friends we got very positive responses and also came to know that they are expecting us to add some other features like the total cost calculating in the local vehicles according to the distance travelled by the users and to trace all the local vehicle from GPS which is somehow difficult. But we might include it in nearby future.

Competition

This app will have a competition with other apps like Taxi fares Nepal and Easy taxi. The differentiate feature of my app will be that it will contains every route of the valley and also tells the users the important fact of the place that user is currently passing until he/she reaches her destination.
