The Study of Car Sharing Algorithm Based on the Time Value



With the development of the theory of car-sharing, Uber developed from single network cars to car sharing. Uber+ had realized many features of the car sharing, but it was only the basis for judging the travel time, ignoring the travel costs of passengers. This paper analyzes the subjective and objective factors of the travel time value, quantifies and estimates them to establish the travel time value model; Combining Uber travel time prediction, we can get the travel costs; Determining based on the travel costs, we can choose the car sharing of similar travel direction without influence the front passengers’ travel costs, take the car to determine whether shared, in order to achieve Uber effective integration about network cars and car sharing, improve operational efficiency.
