The newly published brochure entitled “Field Operational Tests – Evaluating ITS applications in a real-world environment” provides a focused overview on what is going on in the world of Field Operational Tests. It is mainly targeted at stakeholders who are not experts in field operational testing but who are interested:
- in learning about the relevance of FOTs for the evaluation and deployment of ITS applications;
- in getting an overview on the main research questions and main results of FOTs already conducted as well as on remaining open questions;
- in looking beyond national borders to get inspiration from the multitude of activities conducted in Europe and beyond.
The brochure is aimed at inviting stakeholders to consider the relevance of FOTs in the evaluation and deployment of ITS and to explore the research questions and results of the main FOT projects in the areas of Advanced Driver Assistant Systems (ADAS) Intelligent Speed Adaptation (ISA) Cooperative Systems and Naturalistic Driving Studies and FOTs.
Public authorities play a crucial role in ITS deployment but are often under-represented in FOT projects. The brochure therefore takes a particular look at why public authorities engage in FOTs. Viewing the FOT timeline and the Europe map of test sites will show you that a lot is going on in the world of Field Operational Tests.
