Abstract/Artist Statement

Current technology allows companies such as UBER and Lyft to utilize mobile applications for reserving and scheduling rides. These two apps essentially act as taxi services allowing users to request a ride with the tap of a button on their mobile device. The current STRIPES system, the campus ride service at University of the Pacific, requires users to call to schedule rides. It would be much more convenient to be able to schedule a ride through an application with one click in a manner similar to UBER or Lyft. According to the Pew Research Center, “29% of college graduates have used ride-hailing services and just 13% are unfamiliar with the term.” This makes us feel comfortable that many UOP students would easily transition to the use of a ride-hailing app for STRIPES. We are developing a STRIPES mobile application for Android devices. Our application will dispatch a driver to pick up the user at their specified location. The user would either pick a driver that is available, or allow the application to choose the driver who has the least number of scheduled pickups in their queue. At Senior Project Day an interactive demo will be available to those who wish to try out our interface for scheduling rides for STRIPES.
