In a country like India where road traffic has become one of the biggest challenges for a majority of people, carpooling offers a lucrative option to drastically cut the fuel costs for individuals, reduce commute times by lowering traffic on the roads and help reduce pollution levels.
As cities expand in breadth, the time taken to travel and the distances to travel – both have been on an upswing. While the bigger problems of setting up efficient infrastructure and proper public transport continue to linger on, entrepreneurs have pounced at this opportunity to make a difference. The jury is still out there about the success or failure of the idea.
Transportation is a major issue these days. One of the most used means of communication in roadways. One of the major forms of road transport consists of the private passenger car. These cars are generally used with only a single rider. An overabundance of cars create various problems which includes increased traffic, increased pollution, parking congestion and many more. Car sharing aims at solving this problem by targeting the empty seats in the private cars. Employees of the same area or the students going to the same school can carpool. This can be done as the know each other and can communicate. But when going on an inter-city trip you are not aware if some other person also intends to make the same journey. Thus the applications helps you in seeing people and journey schedules and make an informed decision about do you wish to travel alone or save money and travel with a safe company. Furthermore, carpooling has documented social and environmental benefits that include: It helps in reducing traffic congestion as number of vehicles on the road can be reduced significantly. Miles of travel of a particular vehicle and emission of gases by the vehicles can also be reduced. As the…...

...Cars One of the most important steps in becoming an adult is your first car. When you have a car, you don’t need to rely on other people for rides to and from where you want to go. You also learn a great deal, thus making you a more responsible person. I live in Putney, a small town in southeastern Vermont, but I worked and went to school in Brattleboro. Brattleboro is a slightly larger town about a half an hour south of Putney. Since we had to keep stopping to pick up kids, the bus ride to school took an hour. As such, I had to get up a half hour earlier on days I had to ride the bus. That was a huge pain, especially since I hated the bus anyway. After I got my car, I could sleep in. I could also go out to lunch when I was at school, therefore being able to eat where I wanted, and not in the cafeteria. In addition, I could drive myself home after school. That was beneficial because I could hang out with my friends, and go to concerts and movies. I could do whatever I wanted, as long as I made sure my parents were okay with it. My social life improved greatly with the acquisition of my car. If I hadn’t had my car, I could not have worked where I did. I worked at a Lebanese restaurant in downtown Brattleboro. Part of my job was rolling grape leaves in the wholesale department on Mondays and Tuesdays. The job was great, but I never really knew when I was going to be finished. In wholesale, you work until you’re done. When my parents had to come pick me up after work, I...

...Problem: Car Services Ltd (CSL) rends motor vehicle breakdown recovery service to its members. It attracts new members through a television advertising campaign that encourages potential clients to telephone a free call number for further information and the opportunity to immediately enroll with a credit card. Members are offered the choice of three levels of annual service contract in descending order of coverage and price: Gold, Silver and Standard. The telephone inquiries come through to a call centre staffed by CSL employees at the company’s premises who are paid a basic salary and a bonus of each new member that they successfully enroll. Located in the same building on another floor is the Car Hospital (CH) team who take the calls from the stranded motorists and arrange for a franchised garage to deal with the breakdown. These garages are independently owned and CSL pay them a fee for every callout that they undertake. CSL has recently (after January 2004) commenced employing trained mechanics on enhanced salaries to dispense technical advice to members on the telephone in the hope that a proportion of the call-outs to franchised garages will be avoided.

Uber Car Service and the It World

...Uber is a ridesharing service that is headquartered out of San Francisco, California, also operating in other international cities. The company uses a smartphone or mobile tablet application to arrange rides between drivers and riders. The primary role of the IT in this business is not only the enabling of operations, but IT also provides a specific competitive advantage. Most ridesharing services do not run strictly from an application from a mobile device. Uber set themselves above the rest because they were able to engage themselves in a rapidly growing market, with fast, easy, and economical services that all smartphone users can engage themselves in. IT is also the enabler of this company. Customers use this app to request rides and track their reserved vehicle’s location. Without the use of this technology there would be no means of communication between the riders and drivers. The IT that Uber uses is not seen to be “cutting edge” in any means. It is conservative in the means of the technology used; the only thing that makes Uber’s IT “cutting edge” is the innovative way that they have changed and taken control of many markets across world. The use of the business is relatively simple; the rider goes on to the application enters their location and debit/credit card number and is paired with a driver that is near by. There are many applications that are in thousands of different markets that use this same means of payment and use of IT. What makes the IT of......

...With the progress of science and technology, the cars have already become an important part in our daily life. It is known as a vehicle with four wheels and it contains an engine and that is used to move from one place to another smoothly and quickly. The cars are one of many very useful transportation methods; it gives the freedom to travel to anywhere and on anytime. In this essay I will compare and contrast this transportation method between the past generation and the present generation. This essay will focus on three key areas – engine, safety and technology. The first area that this essay will consider is about cars engine, the most importance thing in the car is the engine which it is the thing that makes the car move. In the past, the people were just wanted a car to reach them from point A to point B, so the car engine was so simple. For instance, the mechanical engineer Karl Benz created the first car engine which it called (Benz’s engine), the automobile was motorized by a 0.75-hp one-cylinder four-stroke gasoline engine. Furthermore, the speed of car was just 16 km/h (10 mph) (1). Besides, it was not need a lot of energy and it caused lots of pollution. With the technological advances; in current generation the car’s engine is working the basic principle like in the past by air and fuel combustion to create a rotational force and move the car, but the modern cars engine has become more developed. Where it is characterized by more reliable, more efficient and......

...still going to cost you a tidy five-figure sum to buy the necessary parts, materials and paint supplies needed to transform an old car from a worn-out relic to a dazzling show beauty. If you've decided to restore a particular old car because you have a longstanding attachment to that model and are not concerned about its value or whether parts can be easily found, then we applaud you--that mindset should be the primary focus of this great hobby of ours. However, if you enjoy old car restoration but prefer your projects to be easy and relatively cheap to do--with, perhaps, the added bonus of making a few dollars on it when it's done--then these are the cars you should consider for your next venture. Of course, the majority of these cars won't make you stand apart from the crowd at a show or cruise-in, but you will be able to complete their restoration far faster and a whole lot cheaper than if you chose a car that was rare, or had only been made for a few years. Another factor to consider is the actual purchase price of the car. While some of the cars listed here can be bought for around $5,000, others will cost four times as much even if they're basket cases--but keep in mind that those higher-priced cars will also bring four times the money when sold, so it kind of equals out. But the one common feature enjoyed by most of these cars--and the main reason why they are on this list--is that they're backed by a huge parts supply, making them a lot easier to......

...Breaking Into Cars—Stephen I had never broken into a car before. We were in Laredo, having just finished our first day at a Habitat for Humanity work site. The Hotchkiss volunteers had already left, off to enjoy some Texas BBQ, leaving me behind with the college kids to clean up. Not until we were stranded did we realize we were locked out of the van. Someone picked a coat hanger out of the dumpster, handed it to me, and took a few steps back. “Can you do that thing with a coat hanger to unlock it?” “Why me?” I thought. More out of amusement than optimism, I gave it a try. I slid the hanger into the window’s seal like I’d seen on crime shows, and spent a few minutes jiggling the apparatus around the inside of the frame. Suddenly, two things simultaneously clicked. One was the lock on the door. (I actually succeeded in springing it.) The other was the realization that I’d been in this type of situation before. In fact, I’d been born into this type of situation. My upbringing has numbed me to unpredictability and chaos. With a family of seven, my home was loud, messy, and spottily supervised. My siblings arguing, the dog barking, the phone ringing—all meant my house was functioning normally. My Dad, a retired Navy pilot, was away half the time. When he was home, he had a parenting style something like a drill sergeant. At the age of nine, I learned how to clear burning oil from the surface of water. My Dad considered this a critical life skill—you know, in case my......

...brand-new construction site in New Delhi, India. The construction of this plant, which only builds Stark models, was started in April 2004 and became operational at the end of 2006. The final aim is to manufacture some 200,000 cars per year. This is the first large Stark plant on India soil. It is the definitive link of the brand with our continent, building pickup trucks according to the highest India quality standards. This new production unit will not only set the tone with new standards on efficiency and productivity, but will consequently also respect the strictest environmental standards in the Asia Union. Since quality is a top priority for Stark, 1 in every 15 employees is responsible for quality control. The New Delhi currently employs 1,200 of the very best specialists in pick-up truck assembly. Exporting Decision While Stark enjoyed a relative dearth of competition in its core domestic market, it also launched an aggressive and successful export campaign during the 1980s that penetrated Japan and Europe, among other regions. By the mid-1980s Stark was selling about 300,000 pickup trucks annually, still mostly in South Korea. A major breakthrough for Stark occurred, however, when it started shipping automobiles to one of the largest international car market, Africa. Stark reached an agreement to supply Nivan with its KL1500 model. The KL1500  was a “micro pickup” aimed at the low-end buyer. Stark planned to ship about 70,000 units annually for Nivan and a like......

Ford Cars Go in for Service

...FORD CARS GO IN FOR A SERVICE Case Study 1 Haris Awang ID# MBA2016-04-1001 MBA 6033 Marketing Management Submitted to: Mr Kumaran Raman Acting Postgraduate Coordinator & Senior Lecturer Faculty of Business & Law ASIA METROPOLITAN UNIVERSITY Tel: 03-9080 5888 Ext 680 15th May, 2016 FORD CARS GO IN FOR A SERVICE To many people, cars come pretty close to the goods-dominant extreme of a goods–services continuum. They are produced in factories from the combination of thousands of components, and to most people the physical properties of a car can readily be assessed. But recent experience from the car sector suggests that car manufacturers may be rather more enthusiastic to describe themselves as service-oriented companies. The days are long gone when a car manufacturer would sell a car on the strength of its design features, and then forget about the customer until the time came to replace the car three years later. Car manufacturers have realized that car buyers seek more than the tangible offering— important though that is. Over time, they have moved increasingly into services in an attempt to gain a larger share of car buyers' wallets. In the UK, Ford has led the way in many aspects of this increasing service orientation. It saw an opportunity in the 1970s with the liberalization of consumer credit regulations to offer car buyers loan facilities with which to make their car purchase. Not only did this make it easier for middleincome groups to......

Tableau Work Future of Car

...VISUAL ANALYTICS PROJECT (OPIM 5501) Project Report on FUTURE OF CARS Team 3 Project 2 Members: Ankit Agrawal Mownika Chalichama Phanindra Musunuri Long Phan  1. INTRODUCTION AND DATA Future of Cars visualization project shows the story to predict the future generation of cars. Ten years from now, in 2025, cars will be different, the drivers will be different, the market will be different, and the producers will certainly be different. The team believe that these changes will affect billions of people – from soccer moms to automotive executives, from taxi drivers to investment bankers. The data tells us that consumers are demanding greener, safer, more convenient and affordable cars. Most of these new consumers will come from emerging markets like China and India. Consequently, new trends will force car producers to modernize their supply chain, become more competitive and make lighter cars. Moreover, technology will play a huge part in changing the overall automotive landscape. Self-driving cars, car-cab services (Uber, Lyft, etc.), car pooling and the Internet of Cars all seemed like science-fiction will not remain not so long ago. Now many of them have become reality. There were a lot of data available online since countless research is being carried on cars. Major data source was for example, the website had an entire section on transportation data. Unsurprisingly, cleaning the data took a lot of time. Most of the data came from many......
