Abstract

The goal of the Bobo app was to develop an Android application that will help make taxi usage safer. The app will be used to identify whether a taxi is registered or not by entering the registration plate number or the license number. Once the taxi is validated and the user decides to use it, the user can send their contacts the taxi driver details and the pickup location. The pickup location is generated automatically by using Google Play Services and Google Maps to produce the current address of where the user sent the message. This information is helpful in the case of an emergency and if the police will need to know the last location of the user and last person who was in contact with him/her.

This application is using Firebase to store taxi and user data and runs part of the authentication procedure. WhatsApp is used to send the taxi driver details and the pickup location to the users WhatsApp contacts.
