Welcome to the Innovation WIKI library!
The Innovation WIKI is a document library that is accessible to ROADIDEA project members. All consortium members and registered visitors can add ideas and texts to the Innovation WIKI. Documents can easily be edited and we encourage users to contribute to the WIKI, which can be done by way of:
- Adding content to an existing page. Although a lot of ideas have been listed after the first innovation seminar, many of the ideas have not been given (much) content, so feel free add your contribution;
- Adding a new page: since not all the presented ideas have a WIKI page, feel free to add a page with some content on the specific innovation idea;
- Adding links between pages: when ideas or pages are related, it may be useful to include a link to the related topic. This can be done by placing the exact page title in brackets: [[|..]].
You can get started and add content by clicking Edit at the top of the page, or you can learn more about wiki libraries by clicking How To Use This Wiki Library.
2nd Innovation Seminar Best Ideas
In the second innovation seminar 5 best ideas were chosen:
Service production & support systems of advanced private public transport services
Cooperative dynamic navigation, multimodal and scalable
No-man driving Autonomous driving
If there is no person physically driving the car it is called Autonomous Driving.
Waste to energy Bio-waste used as energy for cars
Travelling on offices - working on transport
There were 19 short-listed ideas whereof 7 ideas, 3 modelling tasks, 3 general development tasks were selected for further study. In addition 4 pilots were selected for further study and practical pilots. The ideas were as follows:
The main Innovations created in the First Innovation Seminar in May 2008 are divided into three groups:
Service ideas (7);
Modelling ideas (3);
General developing ideas (3)
For more information, see Deliverable D5.2: Results of the First Innovation Seminar. Ideas and Pilots for discussion and further development are as follows. Each IDEA and PILOT has its own wiki site and own IDEA team.
CROSS BORDER WEATHER ALERTS
Cross border weather alerts, location-based systems
MOBILE PHONES AS SENSORS
Mobile sensor data acquisition
MyRoute, MOBILE POCKET GUIDEBOOK
My Route Mobile Pocket Guide is a system for providing travel information and updates over a mobile network. It gives the traveller / driver comprehensive real time traffic information needed for well-informed travel decisions (pre-trip information) as well as information during the journey (on-trip).
My Travel Toilet Tom-Tom service is offered to all drivers and travellers. It gives a driver / traveller the possibility to find information on availability of toilets along a planned route, with particular impact on places for disabled persons and mothers with small children. It could also give the driver / traveller possibility to check the other resting possibilities at chosen place.
Invehicle information about speed, road condition and traffic situation
European road weather databases using sponsor-based business model
Road Eye: friction data collection and transmission (acoustic, optical, invehicle etc.)
Friction model: combined with RWIS and weather and maintenance activities
TRAFFIC FORECAST MODELS
Traffic forecast models
Port-related traffic modelling
GENERAL DEVELOPMENT IDEAS
Free geospatial and weather data
Better and tailored user-interfaces of text, image, audio, considering personal characteristics of users: language, disabilities, age, health, and other personal needs
What are the effects of choosing staying home instead of choosing to travel a certain route?
NOTE! This is a new site for any new ideas that may emerge during the work inbetween the
Model “Pulp Friction” - Modelling road surface friction (Practical implementation)
Merging of traffic and weather data in Gothenburg area (Practical implementation)
The Fog Warning System in the Venice Region (Concept)
PORT PILOT Pilot SItes
Modelling the Multimodal Traffic Situation in the Port of Hamburg (Concept)

What is a wiki library?
Wikiwiki means quick in Hawaiian. A wiki library is a document library in which users can easily edit any page. The library grows organically by li
nking existing pages together or by creating links to new pages. If a user finds a link to an uncreated page, he or she can follow the link and create the page.
In business environments, a wiki library provides a low-maintenance way to record knowledge. Information that is usually traded in e-mail messages, gleaned from hallway conversations, or written on paper can instead be recorded in a wiki library, in context with similar knowledge.
Other example uses of wiki libraries include brainstorming ideas, collaborating on designs, creating an instruction guide, gathering data from the field, tracking call center knowledge, and building an encyclopedia of knowledge.
