Abstract: Decentralized blockchain-powered peer-to-peer carpooling presents an innovative, middleman-free solution for secure and transparent ride-sharing. By leveraging blockchain, this proposal establishes a trust-less environment for direct user connections and ride-sharing, with all transactions securely recorded, promoting transparency and heightened security. Smart contracts automate driver-passenger matching and payments, offering the potential to alleviate traffic congestion, reduce transportation costs, and enhance environmental sustainability. Furthermore, the proposed model introduces an essential emergency contact and live location sharing feature, enhancing trust and security within carpooling services by enabling users to share real-time locations with trusted contacts and promptly access emergency services in the event of safety concerns.

Keywords: Peer-to-peer Carpooling, Decentralization, Authentication, Blockchain
