GPS-equipped taxis are mobile sensors probing the traffic flow on road surfaces, and taxi drivers are experienced drivers who can usually find out the fastest path to a destination based on their knowledge. In this demo, we provide a user with the practically fastest path to a destination at a given departure time in terms of taxi drivers' intelligence mined from historical GPS trajectories of taxis. We build our system, called T-Drive, by using a real trajectory dataset generated by over
