Wholistic taxi

A new wholistic taxi system from Raywood Communications, called MD-X system could offer within one year a whole range of service to Australian taxi-drivers and passengers: screens for the customer, a networked environment with internet and telephone network access, but also:
– in-vehicle navigation for both the driver and the passenger – the later will be sure the driver does not Shanghai him for half an hour driving instead of five minutes,
– a passenger surveillance system to view and record from multiple cameras,
– an integrated “meter” – beyond the simple charge meter, it would provide a detailed account of many new charges,

The system should provide new income streams for taxis: combining the destination with this system would allow for relevant local advertising to the passenger (restaurants, hotels and other location-specific services.)
