This month's featured FOT: CO-cities
Co-Cities is an EU pilot project taht was launched this year to introduce and validate cooperative mobility services in cities and urban areas. It will develop a dynamic 'feedback loop' from mobile users and travelers to the cities' traffic management centres, and add elements of cooperative mobility to traffic information services. These software extensions are based on the In-Time Commonly Agreed Interface (CAI), and the pilots will be run in the cities of Bilbao, Florence, Munich, Prague, Reading, and Vienna. The result of this validation of cooperative mobility services will be an increased exchange of experience between public authorities and TISPs in Europe and a faster take-up of best practices.

Frequently asked questions
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 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.
The conduction of an FOT
or a Naturalistic Driving Study (NDS
) requires specific tools. In previous projects these tools were developed each time an FOT or NDS was conducted by the FOT/NDS partners taking into account the specific needs and requirements of their FOT/NDS. This leads to a considerable amount of work, which partly could have been avoided, if existing tools would have been used and additionally if these tools would have been developed in a more general way considering a broader field of application and not only the projects these have been developed for.
Therefore this section is aiming for an inventory of FOT and NDS tools, which can be used by all parties interested in conducting an FOT/NDS. The inventory aims to list all tools and specify these tools as far as the tool specification are accessible and public. By doing so, future FOTs/NDS should be able to re-use existing tools and just adapt these according to their specific needs instead of developing new tools starting from scratch.
The following tools shall be considered:
Tools for data acquisition:
These tools considers all tools which can be used for data collection in the field and its storage in the vehicle
Tools for data management:
These tools considers all tools which can be used for data management, which starts at storage of the data in the vehicle and ends when the data is stored in a database on a server
Tools for data analysis:
These tools consider all tools for processing and aiding the data analysis, which starts after the data is put on the database
FESTA has provided support to the FOT community by designing a handbook of good practice. The handbook will provide applicants to subsequent ICT calls, as far as possible (given the range of near-market ICT systems), practical guidance to allow them to develop compelling FOT projects that address the Commission’s desire for an integrated and coordinated program of research.
