Spark is a software system which will enables the electric taxi/courier market to grow from niche to mainstream with drivers saving between £5,000-£8,000 a year from lower running costs and improved environmental benefits. Our software monitors battery life and sends this information wirelessly to a dispatch system, which then allocates a driver based on proximity to customer, remaining battery life, and length and nature of the requested journey using combined datasets. Once the concept and software has been proven, Spark intends to license the software to dispatch system providers and taxi companies, as well as individual drivers, so integrating with ridesharing firms like Uber and Lyft. We believe that the regulatory and media pressure to reduce transport-related emissions in towns and cities creates a substantial commercial opportunity to prove the software locally through Spark Taxi and then license the software globally.
