PROCESS COMPUTER SIMULATION OF TAXI SYSTEMS

SIMULERING PAA PROCESSDATOR AV TAXISYSTEM

The purpose of the project described in this paper is to find ways to improve existing taxi systems, and to create models for computer simulation in order to evaluate the improvements. The systems are compared in regard to customer waiting time, taxi vacant driving time and load. The simulated system uses computerized central traffic control for location and dispatching of the cars. It was found, that in a system with taxi stations using zone location, customer waiting time was shorter than for systems using no taxi stations. And for a system able to locate the cars exactly, it was found that by letting the car wait where the last trip ended, vacant driving time would be significantly reduced. /TRRL/
