AbstractThe interest in carpooling is increasing due to the need to reduce traffic and noise pollution. Most of the available approaches and systems are route oriented, where driver and passengers are matched when the destination location is the same. ComeWithMe offers a new perspective: the destination is the intended activity instead of a location. This novel matching method is aimed to boost the possibilities of rides if passenger reaches a different location maintaining the activity. We conducted experiments using a real data set of trajectories and our results showed that the proposed matching algorithm improved the traditional carpooling approach in more than 80%.
