<p>In this paper we discuss about the Design of an Automated Wireless Carpooling System (AWCS), which can curtail the over usage of on road vehicles to a considerable amount. This system is designed for private vehicle owners who commute individually from the workplace to home. The system makes use of pre registration method, by which only identified people get into the carpool vehicles so that crime can be reduced. The Central Monitoring system (CMS) used here intelligently handles carpool requests and switches them efficiently. The user can acquire details of his/her travel by sending a SMS from their mobile phone. Waiting centers are allocated at each part of the city and the users can enter the carpooled vehicles only from these waiting centers. A person is assigned at each waiting center to check the identity of the people entering. Thus the proposed AWCS can be implemented in a city efficiently. © 2011 IEEE.</p>
