Challenges in analysing data from a field operational test of advanced driver assistance systems: The euroFOT experience
van Noort, M.
This paper discusses the challenges in analysing the data from the large scale field operational test (FOT) to be conducted within the EC euroFOT project. The euroFOT project aims to investigate the impacts of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and to encourage their deployment. Started within the EC‟s seventh framework programme, the euroFOT project will evaluate, using instrumented vehicles in real traffic conditions, the impact of ADAS on driver performance, safety, the environment, traffic efficiency and user acceptance. The approach derives from the FESTA handbook , which provides guidelines for conducting field operational tests. The FESTA handbook approach is being adapted according to the specific requirements of the euroFOT project. Altogether five Vehicle Management Centres (VMCs) are coordinating the fleet of vehicles being evaluated in the euroFOT project, which consists of approximately 1000 vehicles. Data collection will start in January 2010 for a period of one year.
