Perhaps now after Opher Etzion's posting in his blog http://epthinking.blogspot.com/2011/06/smart-cars-towards-proactive.html
and in connection with his role as chairman of EP-TS (http://www.ep-ts.com/
), it might be a good chance to found a new working-group there and to work on an accordant project proposal. This might also be a good new push and challenge for EP-TS at all to approach new ideas beyond of our "traditional" business, financial applications or AlgoTrading, etc.
This is what we shall actually do at table 2 of the WorldCafe at our 4th edBPM/U-CEP workshop http://forum.complexevents.com/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=313
. There is already an idea from Septimiu Nechifor/Siemens and Jaime Gomez/UPM Madrid to use the idea and "... join an Ambient Assisted Living proposal.
For me it looks like just a specific case of general "context awarness" topics (NextGen Navigation might be on the same family), maybe Jaime can confirm and set some lines for a table on this topic...", Septimiu wrote me and the co-organizers of the mentioned 4th workshop.
As I announced already, I'll come with a proposal for table 2 within the next days and which persons we could invite. On the basis of the outline http://www.citt-online.com/downloads/Intellgent-cars-Extended-Abstract.pdf
(which will continously be updated) it should be quite easy to write a project proposal on the basis of a strong consortium. Because also other domains like telecommunication companies are going to reinvent themselves on the basis of new product and service ideas, we'll discuss such ideas with them and bring the experts together. For instance, telecommunications company are for quite some time considering whether they will be reduced only to the infrastructure for the transmission of data streams, or whether it is possible to find new ideas for services - on the basis of the U-CEP sketches.
