yes I have started a couple of months ago. On one hand I'm still trying
to find the right approach to such a complex topic, on the other hand I
tested some other open source projects and looked if they would be
suited for such a complex application (e.g. pgrouting, Asterisk,
osmosis, OSM Ruby gems and some other gems like the spatial adapter gem,
OpenLayers,...). Furthermore import issues are already existing
standards in the field of traffic information, like Datex2, TPEG, TMC.
Of course I would prefer if I could implement all of them, at the moment
TPEG seems to me as the most promising. Cause it contains elements for
public transport as well (which is not the purpose of Datex2 and TMC).
But back to the basic approach, I'm focusing on ontology driven
architecture, which seems to me like a promising approach. But to be
honest, I used not to work with "ontology's" in software development, so
this topic is quite new to me.
How did you think of starting with such a topic, do you have already a
very fixed concept and what are you main goals? Are you interested in
doing some parts, or most of it together? I would love to.
I'm going update the GSoC Idea page soon, hope that makes my goals and
the basic concept clear.
