The [[DRIVE_C2X|DRIVE C2X]] European Integrated Project, the follow-up project of PRE-DRIVE C2X, has started in January 2011 and will continue till 2013. There is today a general understanding of the benefits of cooperative systems in terms of traffic safety and efficiency, but so far these systems have been tried out in small scale experiments only. There is no proof of their benefits yet with many communicating vehicles used in variable conditions on roads. The work proposed builds strongly on previous and on-going work on cooperative systems, which are now considered to be mature enough for large-scale field operational tests. The Europe-wide testing community envisaged for DRIVE C2X comprises six test sites in Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Sweden, France and Finland. Essential in this project are the testing methodology and evaluation of the impact of cooperative driving functions on users, environment and society. In addition, other important areas of testing are technical functionality and robustness of the systems – also in adverse conditions. The user feedback and the results from technical tests enable the creation of realistic business models for the following market introduction.

COSMO is adopting a system-wide approach to the assessment of energy efficiency, measuring the effect of a range of innovative traffic management systems on fuel consumption and traffic emissions, but also considering the impact of the energy used by the equipment itself.

COSMO is a 32-month (2010-2013) pilot project co-funded by the European Commission under the Competitiveness & Innovation Programme - ICT Policy Support Programme (CIP - ICT-PSP).The aim of the project is to demonstrate in realistic conditions the benefits of cooperative mobility services and to quantify their impact on increasing the energy efficiency of transport. COSMO is adopting a system-wide approach to the assessment of energy efficiency, measuring the effect of a range of innovative traffic management systems on fuel consumption and traffic emissions, but also considering the impact of the energy used by the equipment itself. Experimentation will be carried out in the following application areas: Eco-traffic management & control; Eco-driving for private cars and public transport; Multimodal real-time travel information systems; Dynamic Access Management strategy; Eco-navigation.

Frequently asked questions

The FOT Catalogue

With the aim to involve all experts, FOT-Net has created a FOT Catalogue to which everyone can contribute. It is an online list of past and present FOT activities for anyone interested in FOTs, their methodology, their set-up and their results.

With this Wiki pages, we aim to build up a catalogue of key information about various past, current and planned field tests in Europe, North-America and the region Asia-Pacific. You can help us build the FOT Catalogue by listing or enriching information about your field test in this catalogue!

If your Field Operational Test is not listed and you would like to add a page, please use the FOT sheet template

You can copy the code and headings and create a new FOT page based on the defined template.

The FOT Glossary

The FOT community has gradually set up a Glossary starting from the activities of FESTA and now further improved by euroFOT. FOT-Net is trying to bring the Glossary to the whole FOT community in the FOT Glossary where anyone can suggest an addition or amendment.
