FOTsis Field Operational Tests reach the end of the deployment stage

 

Following the successful pilot testing of the test sites, the FOTsis services have reached the end of the deployment phase.  In practice, this means that all 7 FOTsis Services have been tested with external users and data is being gathered and stored in the FOTsis Central Evaluation Database, which subsequently is being analysed in order to assess the impact of the FOTsis services on safety and mobility.

S1 ‘Emergency Management’ and S5 ‘Special Vehicle Tracking’ are services that depend on professional users and thus have merited a different approach to other services.  In order to test S1, the project is cooperating successfully with the emergency authorities in both Greece (PATHE motorway) and Spain (M-12 motorway) with a view to assessing the potential benefits of deploying e-call from an infrastructure point of view in terms of enhanced reaction time to incidents.   For S5, the project is collaborating with fleet operators in order to demonstrate the benefits of Special Vehicle Tracking on selected stretches of road in Portugal and Spain.

For the other FOTsis services (S2-Incident Management, S3-Intilligent Congestion Control, S4- Dynamic Route Planning, S6-Advanced Enforcement and S7-Infrastructure Safety Assessment), the project has managed to recruit a significant number of professional and non-professional drivers in order to properly quantify the benefits of the FOTsis services, as demonstrated in the table below:

The testing of services will last until December 2014 after which all the data captured in FOTsis Central Evaluation Database will be analysed for results.
