    Jobs allocated to cabs by computer

    I’m seeking details for my WIP about how work is allocated to taxis by a computerised dispatch system. By ‘how’, I mean the process by which a car in a given area is able to pick up a job. How does the car’s location relate to the pick-up address? Does a moving car cause problems either of data transmission or with jobs being inappropriately allocated? I realise these are possibly high tech questions and that procedures may vary from one data system to another. FWIW, the country is Australia and the local system is MTD (their site is unhelpful). My isolation (two hours from nearest town with multiple taxis) makes it difficult to pose these questions to a cabbie.

    Thank you
