International Workshop “Dot not let large datasets go to waste”
Helsinki, 17 June 2014
In Field Operational Tests (FOTs), huge amounts of data are gathered about the interaction between ITS and drivers, vehicles and infrastructure. Not all data are analysed in the projects that have collected it. Re-using the data for further analyses or to answer new research questions or as test data for apps would be ideal.

The Workshop will take a closer look at the data available from large European FOTs and address the question how can we benefit from the data. We will look at the euroFOT (ADAS FOT) and DRIVE C2X (cooperative-systems FOT) projects, giving an overview of types of data collected and their deployment. Also SHRP2 (US Naturalistic Driving study) data will be discussed; these are being analysed by third parties. UDRIVE, the European NDS, still has to start data-collection but is already preparing for data-use by others. FOT-Net Data, the European support action dedicated to data sharing, will explain its role in facilitating data sharing in Europe. Next to short presentations from these projects, the workshop will include an interactive session between the panel and the audience to find ideas on how some example datasets can be used to answer impact questions on safe, efficient and sustainable transport.

International Workshop on Data Sharing
Detroit, 7 September 2014

FOT-Net Data, in collaboration with the US DOT, will organise a workshop on the occasion of the 21st World Congress on Intelligent Transport Systems that will be held in Detroit from 7 to 11 September 2014. 
A registration link will be sent to you early June 2014.

This workshop aims to exchange information on FOTs and data sharing between the three regions (Europe, Asia-Pacific and North America), discuss problems and solutions for data sharing and provide recommendations for a global data sharing framework.

Discussions in small groups will either address more technical or more organisational questions. This workshop is meant for everyone interested in data sharing, people working in FOTs, decision makers in private and public organisations, data experts and transport researchers.

Paper Presentation “A platform for sharing data from field operational tests”
Detroit, September 2014

During the Technical and Scientific Program at the Detroit Congress, FOT-Net Data will also organise a paper presentation. Exact location and date will be communicated in due time. 

The paper describes how a platform is being developed for sharing data collected in FOTs. In these tests often a huge amount of data is gathered about driver behaviour and the interaction between drivers, vehicles, ITS, infrastructure and the traffic environment. These datasets are often only partly analysed because of targeted research goals and lack of resources.  They may be of great value for other organisations and researchers in order to answer further research questions and to determine the impact of wide-scale use of ITS. The paper will describe a how a European platform for enabling data sharing and data re-use is being developed.

About FOT-Net Data:
The EU research project FOT-Net Data supports the efficient sharing and re-use of available FOT (Field Operational Tests). Sharing collected valuable datasets from the recent years will yield further research results, create new collaborative options, general financial and time savings in transport research and contribute to market introduction of improved vehicle ICT.

FOT-Net Data continues the networking activities of the FOT-Net project.
