seats – urban carpool / Carpooling mobile app

seats – urban carpool
seats – urban carpool

seats is a mobile app for carpooling in urban areas and connects people with the same everyday travel. Unlike other apps, it aims to organize regular carpools instead of single rides. The benefit is much more than shared driving cost. It´s main goal is to reduce the volume of traffic and to enhance the quality of life in cities. Everyday enormous commuter flows build up with masses of cars which are on the same way at the same time. Nevertheless, most of these cars only carry one person and a lot of seats remain empty. seats analyses the users motion profil, recognizes their everyday routes and connects those users who have matching routes.
