Electric Rickshaws provide eco-friendly, cheap, convenient, time-effective means of transportation in place of conventional rickshaws. The e-rickshaws operating in the country observed a significant increase in numbers from 1000 in year 2010 to more than a lakh in year 2014. As these rickshaws are not operated manually, they provide longer rides to the users. The e- rickshaws lack regularization and management, due to which they increased the burden on public transportation system. Many issues related to the e-rickshaws like regularization, safety and management need to be addressed for their proper functioning. The regularization of e-rickshaws was addressed with the passing of Motor Vehicle Amendment Bill (2014) by the Lok Sabha. An efficient way for the management of e-rickshaws is discussed in the paper. The paper aims at developing a real-time e-rickshaw management system which focuses on providing safety and convenience to the users. The system will be working as an integrated function of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags and Global Positioning System (GPS) to ensure the safety of the passengers. The RFID tags store detailed information about the passengers entering the vehicle and GPS is used to locate the location of the e-rickshaw at any given time. Furthermore, the management system is made more reliable by providing additional information like availability of e-rickshaws on a particular route at a given time. The goal of this system is to develop a pliable, reliable, user-friendly and cost-effective e-rickshaw management system that will not only be worthwhile for the users but e-rickshaw holders.


RFID, GPS, management, safety, eco-friendly.
