Taxi-for-all: Incentivized Taxi Actuation System for Balanced Area-wide Service

This project develops a method to incentivize taxis to travel to different parts of a city so that they sense data or pick up passengers in under-served areas. Taxis' natural movement generally leads to them concentrating in busy locations with many potential passengers. By incentivizing taxis to move towards less busy locations, the research team can even out their distribution across a city. This work extends our prior UTC-funded research on incentivizing taxi movement for crowdsensing.
