Abstract

There is tremendous increase in population, due to this there is increase in number of vehicles. The rise in number of vehicles had led to many problems like traffic congestion, increase in consumption of fuels, rising travel costs. Considering all these problems we have studied different papers. This paper introduces bike sharing application which will help people to travel on one bike and share their expenses and also reduce pollution.

Keywords

Bike pooling, Android, pollution, Google maps

Introduction

Travelling from one place to another has become the main issue of the society now-a-days. Increased population has given rise to increased number of vehicles for travelling purposes. Due to this, carbon emissions are being released in large amount which is harming the environment. And also because of increasing number of personal vehicles mostly cars, the parking problems are increasing and also pollution is rapidly growing. People are also suffering from high travelling costs and also fuel prices are rising.

In order to overcome these problems, this paper is useful for finding different solutions on it. Bike pooling is an android application in which people will share bikes to travel distances which goes along the same route of the bike user. Bike Pooling is a pick-up and drop-off service provided to the users according to their needs. Hence number of vehicles will be reduced so that traffic congestion problems, air pollution will be reduced. Bike pooling also helps people to share their travel expenses that is fuel costs which will also be useful to save fuel for future use as fuels are getting decreased day by day due to large amount of consumption.

In this application Aadhar card link will be added for getting user's true identity. It also includes Google maps for tracing real time navigation. This application is useful for booking bikes from home also.

According to Nayana M. Nale the application is implemented for carpooling using android application. In this paper car sharing is introduced in which more than one person can share one vehicle for travelling. This paper also provides more security. Also GPS navigation is used to trace out driver's route [7].

According to Kapil Kamble the application is based on android domain in which sharing of cars is done for travelling purpose. In this paper it provides security of travelling in car, more than one person can travel and by sharing vehicle also fuel expenses are shared. Parking problems are solved in this paper [8].

According to Yuvraj Nalawade the system is based on car sharing so that people can share car to travel for going to the same destination. It is an eco-friendly application which consumes less fuel by sharing cars so that number of vehicles is reduced and due to that pollution is kept under control [9].

According to Fu-Shiung Hsieh the system is based on web application. This paper helps to reduce problems like air pollution and traffic congestion as the number of vehicles is reduced due to carpooling application. Fuel costs are shared between the passengers [10].

According to Mohammad Shahriar Rahman this paper is a web application. It is implemented using Internet Of things (IOTs). In this paper sharing of bikes is done for travelling various distances for different purposes. This paper includes solution on issues like parking spaces, traffic congestion and air pollution [11].

According to Avila Antao the system is used for public transportation and it is eco-friendly. In this paper pick up and drop service is provided for people travelling along same distances. It provides security. This paper also reduces traffic related issues and pollution problems [12].

System Description

The system in Figure 1 is implemented for Bike Pooling using Android Application. Bike pooling means sharing of bikes among people for travelling purpose. By sharing travel and fuel costs are reduced and also carbon emissions are decreased due to less number of vehicles and hence pollution is kept under control (Table 1).

1 In this paper the system is implemented using Internet of things.(IOTs) [1] In this paper bike sharing is done using GPS tracing and by using radio frequency user authentication is done [1] This system is very much time consuming and not available for mobile phones and it’s used only for bicycles [1]
2 This system is implemented using android application and GPS tracker is used [2] In this paper the system provide women safety that is she can choose driver of her choice either a male or female [2] This system is not available for mobile phones and travelling is not done by optimal way [2]
3 This paper is an android application which includes Google maps and GPS tracker for locations and routes [3] In this paper the system provide optimal way to travel for daily transportation and fuel consumption is also reduced due to sharing of Bikes [3]     Pre-Registration is needed. Cost is very high. Does not identify travel time [3]
4 In this Paper GPS navigation done using android application and web services [4] In this paper the system is mainly useful in areas where is densely populated and where no mode transportation [4]   The application is useful for car [4]
5 The paper is implemented for car pooling and is based on android platform [5] In this paper the application helps people for sharing expenses and making connections and also provides security [5]      The application is useful for car [5]
6 This paper is a web based application implemented for car-pooling musing genetic algorithm [6] In this paper the system is implemented using genetic algorithm in web application and find optimal way to travel [6]                                       It is web application and it is not used for bikes and does not used for smart phones [6]
