PROJECT: A novel software platform for smart hitchhiking
COMPANY: Epoca Srl
SmartHitch offers an affordable, stress-free, reliable and enjoyable commute/travel, by profiting from a transportation solution that maximizes both convenience, cost effectiveness, and customization, flexibility and reliability. Based on rider/driver preferences and requirements, commuting drivers are connected with other commuters through an online platform.
SmartHitch is especially relevant for large private and public institutions, where a large number of commuters travel to a relatively low number of workplace locations and allows for efficient carpooling. The SmartHitch project is being carried out in Italy at EPOCA, a spin-off of the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, with an interdisciplinary team of Software Engineers, Developers, and Designers.
