A car pooling service for the universities

Implementation of the matching system of a car pooling service for the two main Universities of Milano. A web-based system has been implemented and the service has been offered to students and employees of the universities.

The objective has been to overcome the main limitation of the currents systems, which mainly consist in post-it boards. An algorithm has been identified and developed, to match the offer of the drivers and the demand of the passengers, taking into account multiple objectives (e.g. maximizing the accepted crews, minimizing the travel time).
