Flywheel is a company that has developed a mobile platform which goes by the same name (FlyWheel) to provide awesome services to both users and cab drivers of Uber and Lyft transporting services. Helping to connect the can drivers to their numerous customers, FlyWheel is now ready to even help to do so much more by introducing an operating system called the TaxiOS to its system.
Primarily, the work of the TaxiOS would be for the driver to, asides from establish connection with clients, read the meter for the entire journey via their mobile phone.
This is expected to remove the bulkiness involved in the running of traditional cab meters which are sometimes also inaccurate as they use car rotation method to determine the distance covered and thus the cab fares.
The Flywheel app itself is an Uber-like taxi-hailing app.
FlyWheel has claimed that its service is the first of its kind and that its service would provide a much more accurate way to measure the distance a cab has traveled translating to effective costing measures. This technology would be based on the Global Positioning System (GPS) technology.
The first place where this technology would be launched is San Francisco, making it the first location in the world where the world’s first virtual meter was put to use. We hope to always hear stunning reports of this meter’s operation.
