MIP-FYP-UROP - Module Independent Projects, Final Year Projects, and Undergrad Research Opportunity Projects
8 students in 5 teams
MIP: These are mostly self proposed projects. It gives opportunity to highly motivated students to turn their great ideas to live projects without worrying about module requirements, grades etc. Projects meeting STePS standards will be accepted. FYP/UROP: These are regular final year projects and undergraduate research projects. STePS provides a platform these students to get initial industry feedback and to meet potential investors / collaborators.
Ride-sharing apps simplify the process of booking rides by leveraging on the Global Positioning System (GPS) and communication technologies available on smartphones. While this has largely been effective, such apps often involve a central party who influences the prices users pay. This project examines the ride-sharing market from a different dimension where we essentially remove a central party and implement auction-based ride systems between a rider and prospective drivers. Such a system can benefit both the riders and drivers. Riders are assured the best price by free market economics and drivers need not pay exorbitant commissions, surely a win-win situation.
