The City of Moreno Valley, CA and the OSADP are offering the opportunity to collaborate and participate in the development of the anonymous wireless address matching application known as OpenAWAM. The City is working with the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transit Authority (LACMTA) to develop this software to collect and aggregate data from the Bluetooth/WiFi readers. Software developers, organizations or interested individuals are encouraged to participate in the development and testing of this software to:

Build and complete the integration and use of the software;
Prevent duplication of effort; and
Allow their work to be used by a wider audience of peers
The project sponsors would like your help in any of the following areas:

Contributing sections of code
Testing and obtaining user feedback
Identifying new use cases, or validating use cases currently in development
Proposing other areas to collaborate and apply your skills
To collaborate on this project, you must be a registered user of the OSADP and have a GitHub account. Please complete request collaboration form for participating the Open AWAM project. If you do not have an account, you may submit an account registration request by following the 'create an account' link shown below the login form. All collaboration requests will be evaluated by the OSADP administrators and the Open AWAM project manager. You will be notified if/when your request is granted.

Project Information:

AWAM stands for Anonymous Wireless Address Matching, and is a generic term for Bluetooth- or WiFi- based travel time data collection systems. The OpenAWAM uses field devices, called nodes running Linux software, to collect Bluetooth addresses and pass the data over an agency-owned data telecommunication network to a central computer. This central computer matches and processes these addresses to develop travel times. Travel times are then developed for roadway segments and displayed on a map and/or disseminated. Anonymization is accomplished by generating and passing a CRC32 checksum of the address in the field; the addresses are never recorded.

The software project is cross-platform (Windows or Linux) and consists of Python and Javascript files for installation, plus instructions for assembling and installing field nodes from off-the-shelf components costing less than $200 each for a complete node. No software development is required for the field nodes because existing open-source software provides all necessary functionality. The Moreno Valley test bed currently consists of four field nodes which have been operational for more than one year.
