liftshare has joined forces with Penrillian (mobile software experts), Lancaster University's Department of Communication Systems and HW Communications (specialists in positioning technology) in a unique collaboration to further increase the uptake of car-sharing.
The result - FlexiRide - delivers enhanced personalised travel information as well as a journey planning and management tool. Car-sharers will benefit from the innovative components as FlexiRide technology will be deployed to overcome many of the perceived barriers to car-sharing, such as timing a journey around someone else and organising petrol contributions between sharers.
FlexiRide is funded by the Technology Strategy Board, a business-focused organisation dedicated to promoting technology enabled innovation across the UK. The project, which began in Summer 2009, is due to complete later this year. If you'd like to find out more please email louise@Liftshare.com.
