  • Under the Hood: A Look at Sidecar’s On-demand Logistics Infrastructure | Sidecar
    algorithms then take into account to determine routing and which delivery mode s to effectively utilize Our Routing Algorithm The routing algorithm is the heartbeat of our on demand infrastructure In compsci terms it is solving a new class of problem a traveling salesman problem modified with ordered pickups and dropoffs and deadlines Most importantly however in our context the problem is not static An optimally routed system will become sub optimal once the next person orders a ride or some a burrito an emergency auto part etc This obviously has tremendous impact on complexity of solution and continued optimization on this front is where we spend a LOT of time This is the stuff of an algorithmist s dreams or nightmares Every car bike courier and walker on the Sidecar network is not on one ride or one delivery per se Rather they are assigned to an ordered set of multiple waypoints each with individual deadlines They might be picking up two orders at the first location dropping one off at the next picking two more up at the third and so on and so forth These waypoint sets can be assigned or reassigned on the fly as optimality is recalculated As new orders come into the system the algorithm assigns or reassigns them while taking into account prescheduled orders still needing to be dispatched The goal of the system is to maximize driver efficiency and minimize confusion due to reassignments all while targeting a 95 on time percentage Take for example a San Francisco driver with someone s groceries in her backseat who is headed to deliver them in Lower Nob Hill An order is placed for a hot food delivery and the pickup is roughly along the driver s route The algorithm now has a decision to make offer this order to an available driver in another neighborhood or dynamically insert it into the occupied driver s itinerary In this case and in many like it the already busy driver ends up being the best choice for this new work as they gain efficiency while only adding marginal incremental drive time to make the pickup Putting it All Together So what s the punchline here Well efficiency translates into price and a low price for on demand deliveries means that you can get more and more things delivered on demand without being cost prohibitive Let s walk through a peak demand evening and see what happens Let s say a particular 0 25 mile x 0 25 mile grid has a number of on demand enabled restaurants bakeries medical marijuana dispensaries etc on it Let s also suppose that over 60 minutes the sum total of all orders placed to locations inside this grid is 20 deliveries If this isn t a first time spike in demand our forecasts would indicate that walkers should be placed in this zone in anticipation of this volume In this situation let s say that eight of the orders were headed
