Case Study: Online System for Kangaroo Taxi
Kangaroo Taxi is a new company in Australia, offering online booking services for their users. Kangaroo Taxi is about to launch an easy-to-use website allowing its users to access from smartphones. The website will enable the users to plan and book their trip. Upon the first use, users would be able to enter their details into the system, including their means of payments (e.g., credit card, PayPal, etc.). This will allow the users to use the Kangaroo Taxi in any subsequent bookings as well. Users can simply log in to their registered accounts and make a booking for a taxi by entering their pickup and destination address. The system will provide them with an estimated cost according to this information.
Suppose you are asked to develop this online system for Kangaroo Taxi. You have been given only three weeks to come up with a blueprint of the system design. After that, you will be presenting your design to a team of consultants. The online system should perform several activities such as adding or creating a new user, checking for available taxis and drivers in the area requested by the customer, calculating the cost of a trip, issuing an online ticket or receipt and processing all bookings transactions. In addition, you may add any other functions for this system.
- Draw use case description for registering accounts and making a booking.
- Draw use case diagram.
