    A diverse range of architectures and concepts was proposed by scholars within the theme of Car Pooling Problem solving. Most of these scholars have attempted to put together two major elements: the need for people to move from a place to another, and the resources used to accomplish this action. Based on the use of location and available car seats, Car sharing systems allowed a substantial number of people to share car rides. These systems would, among other advantages, rationalize energy consumption, save money, and decrease traffic jams and human stress, and eventually make a significant improvement in human life. This paper proposes the initial phase of Smart Ride Seeker (SRS), which is a Car Pooling-like technique for distributing resources among a community that shares the same goals. This SRS technique will be developed through a mobile-based application that allows the mapping of ride seekers’ locations along with the locations of available cars on a graphical interface/map, giving the possibility to calculate the fastest and simplest path for both the ride giver and seeker to meet and fulfill their demand.
