Drive-in Project Will Improve City Mobility

 

In the beginning of 2011, around 500 taxis from the city of Porto will have a NDrive GPS. The Drive-In project is funded by the Carnegie Mellon Portugal Program, through the Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology. The main goal is to improve the communication among vehicles. Researchers from FCUP and FEUP are working on this project, with researchers from the University of Aveiro, the Telecommunications Institute and the Carnegie Mellon University. They work in partnership with NDrive, Brisa, Geolink, Raditaxis and the IMTT.
