The iTIXI software is designed for managing a fleet of "taxis for handicapped persons". The first "i" in tixi stands for "Invalide", which is the german word for "handicapped". In some countries the word "handicab" is common, instead of "tixi" which is very much swiss.
The iTIXI software is designed to incorporate a m-VRPWT algorithm (multi-vehicle routing problem with time window). Vehicles are not restricted to one depot, but can be assigned to any location (multi-depot). The code is designed to minimize empty trips, with the potential for saving up to 10% of the total kilometers driven.
The fleet of taxis are driven by volunteers. As a consequence this project is 'open source'.
