Traffic Information like a congestion color displayed on a navigator or a car accident reported over a FM radio is a necessary information for a commuter in a big city today. However to acquire the traffic data, one may need to deal with a huge investment and maintenance cost on vast sensors along a roadway, an authorization to install the equipment, a data privacy issue, and etc. In this paper we propose a self-sustained service platform for traffic Closed Circuit Televisions (CCTVs) called "Traffy Social Eyes" to alleviate those difficulties. The platform provides a social CCTV service on the cloud where anyone can join-in, either as a data provider or as a consumer of traffic information. Anyone can access the CCTVs for free over various channels like a TV, a web, or a smart phone. The business model is displayed in a canvas format. Beyond the traditional traffic information, we provide APIs for developers to extend and innovate services based on our platform. The implementation and the service innovation have been discussed. The Traffy Social Eyes platform can be adapted to any city and any kind of picture given the innovative offering of this sen ice framework. © 2012 IEEE.
