We present OCTOPUS, an internet based system that allows users to voluntarily share prepaid “aller-retour” toll cards of limited lifetime or/and use a car pooling service. Users have to register and provide details about the resource they either possess or wish to make use of. OCTOPUS is then responsible for processing and matching user requests utilizing geographical information also allowing users to select their matching members just using their smartphone or any mobile device with an internet connection. OCTOPUS is yet another proof of concept that internet and the web can actually promote resource sharing for social welfare in our modern society.
