FOT-Net Data will organise a workshop and present a technical paper during the ITS World Congress in Detroit in September 2014.

The FOT-Net Data International workshop on Data Sharing will take place in Detroit on Sunday 7 September 2014 from 09:00-15:30 before the opening ceremony. The workshop will be organised in collaboration with US DOT.  Its focus will be:

Exchange information of Field Operational Tests (FOTs) and data sharing between the three regions; Discuss problems and solutions for data sharing; Provide recommendations for the Data sharing platform.

Registration will open early June 2014.

At the Detroit Congress, FOT-Net Data will also present a paper called “A platform for sharing data from Field Operational Tests“. The paper has been prepared by Yvonne Barnard, Sami Koshinen and Helena Gellerman.

The paper describes how a platform is being developed for sharing data collected in Field Operational Tests (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.

Exact location and date of paper presentation will be communicated in due time.
