Road Works Warning (RWW)
The main objective of Road Works Warning is to improve road safety. The service aims to reduce the number of collisions with safety-objects near road works and to increase the safety of road work workers.
Taking into account various stakeholders’ views, a list of business model blueprints that address current or future challenges of urban areas, together with their operating and value-capture scenarios depicting the inner-workings of the business models, and the exchange of costs-benefits among stakeholders, have been created for the Road Works Warning service.
