Publication number: US20210336948A1
Application number: 17/328,152

Abstract:
Systems and methods are directed to improvements for secure communications between client systems and a vehicle integration platform associated with a service provider entity. In one example, a communication infrastructure is provided which includes a vehicle integration platform that includes a plurality of application programming interfaces configured to facilitate communication among clients. The communication infrastructure includes a security integration system which is configured to receive and validate a client certificate forwarded to the vehicle integration platform from a client and determine an identity of the client and an origin of a request associated with the client certificate. The security integration system is configured to generate a certificate signing request associated with the client certificate based in part on the identity of the client and obtain an operational certificate for the client based in part on the certificate signing request to establish ability for client authentication within the vehicle integration platform.

Publication number: US20210097559A1
Application number: 16/948,744

Abstract:
Systems and methods for optimizing a pickup location are provided. A network system receives a request for transportation service from a device of a rider, whereby the request includes a requested pickup location. Based on the requested pickup location, the network system determines one or more candidate pickup locations that optimize for the pickup location. The determining the one or more candidate pickup locations includes determining an actual location of the rider, accessing index scores associated with the actual location, identifying dwell point and hotspot candidates based on corresponding index scores, and selecting one or more dwell point and hotspot candidates as the one or more candidate pickup locations. The network system then causes presentation of the one or more candidate pickup locations on a user interface on the device of the rider.
