Project Proposal - Project Introduction:

Required Information

Responses (Please list N/A if not applicable)

Name of Project

OpenTDX - Open Transport Data eXchange

Project Description (what it does, why it is valuable, origin and history)

OpenTDX is a cloud and edge cloud platform to exchange and distribute data in real-time between users in a certain geography. One use case is V2X (Vehicle to anything communication), where data between road users (like cars) and between road infrastructure (e.g. traffic lights) and road users is anonymously exchanged with each other

Statement on alignment with Foundation Mission Statement

We agree with the foundation's mission statement.

High level assessment of project synergy with existing projects under LF Edge, including how the project compliments/overlaps with existing projects, and potential ways to harmonize over time. Responses may be included both here and/or in accompanying documentation. 

OpenTDX will investigate synergies with other LF Edge projects, like Akraino for leveraging infrastructure and application blueprints. Beside, projects like Fedge, ...

Link to current Code of Conduct

We will adopt LF Edge's Code of Conduct.

Project Proposal - Mapping Criteria and Data:

Stage 1: At Large Projects (formerly 'Sandbox')



2 TAC Sponsors, if identified (Sponsors help mentor projects) - See full definition on Project Stages: Definitions and Expectations

A presentation at an upcoming meeting of the TAC, in accordance with the project proposal requirements

The typical IP Policy for Projects under the LF Edge Foundation is Apache 2.0 for Code Contributions, Developer Certificate of Origin (DCO) for new inbound contributions, and Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License for Documentation. Projects under outside licenses may still submit for consideration, subject to review/approval of the TAC and Board.

Upon acceptance, At Large projects must list their status prominently on website/readme

*** For existing Projects requesting Stage 2 or Stage 3 consideration, please update the above with the Stage 2 or Stage 3 Mapping criteria, available at Project Stages Mapping: Criteria and Data
