New Leeds Taxi Technologies

The Leeds taxi sector has not been impermeable to technological innovations. The confirmation of this fact is clearly reflected in the evolution and incorporation of technological innovations in two of its defining elements: vehicle and taximeter. Without a doubt, the evolution and technological innovation in these elements has been very marked by the market and industry of the private or licensed sector. The inescapable renewal of these defining elements has necessarily led to the incorporation of new technologies.

But what is a technological innovation? And what innovations can be incorporated into the Leeds airport taxi industry?

We can understand by technological innovation the creation or modification of a product and its introduction in a market, the result of applying a new taxi technology. Technology is the set of instruments and industrial procedures of a particular sector or product, which can then be used within rental services to the general public..

In the 70's, with the crisis generated by the price of oil, the need to innovate in the search for new engines with lower consumption and use of new fuels is reaffirmed. Growing concern for the environment reinforces the need for innovation in these technologies, including the use of alternative energies.

All this has contributed to the emergence of microprocessors and systems of control, checking and security (based on microcircuits) that have been incorporated into a multitude of objects existing in our society - the taxi and airport industries being a couple of clear examples.

During the last decade of the twentieth century, partly facilitated by the innovations discussed above, new technologies are related to communication. Thus, the current technological revolution in Taxi Services in Leeds refers to concepts such as: Internet, mobile phone, e-mail, digital television, GPS, encryption and data transmission. All these go towards bringing a better all round quality for services such as airport transfers.
