Abstract

This project involves the system analysis and design of a ridesharing application aimed to reduce driving costs and offer a green alternative to the traditional workweek commute. GEARS (Group Employee Automatic Rideshare System) is an incentivized carpool solution for employees. In partnering with a company’s Human Resource Department, GEARS generates rideshare matching opportunities between coworkers. GEARS includes a reward system for employee participation, which leads to the broader benefits of reducing traffic, of decreasing fuel consumption, and of fostering stronger working relationships. This analysis includes an investigation of current carpooling options, a cost analysis of building the GEARS system, the system’s technical specifications as well as system design/diagramming techniques using UML (Unified Modeling Language). Construction and implementation of this project is to be completed in June 2022.
