Hack a day posted about this great project! Check out the full build here.

– The goal

This will help to see the state of roads, in live, just need to load your favorite (urban or not) traffic map.

– The screen

I have found a nice screen on ebay for ~18€, a 3.2″ TFT LCD Touch Screen, cheap and small is ideal.

– Installing raspbian-DVK512-12040725.img

To use the touch screen, we run under a Raspbian distribution, you can download the image file here already configured to work with the XPT2046 LCD Control (most common 3.2 TFT found on ebay) . Extract the image file on a 2Gb mini SD Card, and run the setup config.

– Calibrate the screen

Go to Preferences, Calibration Touchscreen, follow the instructions.
