This month's featured FOT: TeleFOT

TeleFOT Logo.gif

TeleFOT aims to test the impacts of driver support functions on the driving task with large fleets of test drivers in real-life driving conditions. In particular, TeleFOT assesses via Field Operational Tests the impacts of functions provided by aftermarket and nomadic devices, including future interactive traffic services that will become part of driving environment systems within the next five years.

Up to 3000 drivers in TeleFOT-equipped vehicles have been driving around in eight of the Member Countries involved in the project (Finland, Sweden, Germany, UK, France, Greece, Italy and Spain).

The results of TeleFOT will be showcased at a final event on November 27th and 28th 2012 in Brussels [1]

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.

In addition the four pan-eropean CIP PSP pilot projects on Electromobility that were launched jointly in 2012 are working on a common Glossary. The CIP PSP Electromobility pilot projects glossary can be viewed on this Wiki.

Tools for FOTs

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 handbook

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.

Visit the FESTA handbook page to browse the FESTA handbook and the deliverables of FESTA.
