CARTRE Webinar: Introduction to FESTA
CARTRE is a Coordination and Support Action to accelerate development and deployment of automated road transport by increasing market and policy certainties. CARTRE actively supports Field Operational Tests (FOTs) and pilots carried out at National and European levels.
In Europe the FESTA methodology has been developed for designing and executing pilots and FOTs, and for analysing the results and assessing the impacts. This methodology has been applied during the last decade in many projects.
In this webinar we will present the basic ideas behind FESTA, and the main steps in the methodology will be explained. It will be discussed how the methodology is useful for conducting road automation pilots.
The webinar is targeted at people from research, industry and public authorities who are unfamiliar with the FESTA methodology and who are interested or involved in current or upcoming Field Operational Tests and Pilots of automated vehicles.
Topics presented include: Use cases and research questions, performance indicators and study design, data acquisition and data analysis, impact assessment, ethical, data sharing, and FESTA for automation.
