FOT – Net Data final event
The FOT-Net Data project has concluded its work with a final event in collaboration with CARTRE project that has taken place in Brussels on 14 and 15 December 2016.
The first day of the final event featured results from FOT-Net Data, especially the Data Sharing Framework, and covered news from related projects by the FOT community. The second day has been a working meeting, planning continuation of FOT-Net’s themes in CARTRE and cooperation between automated driving pilot projects. Evaluation methodology and data expectations for the new large-scale tests have been discussed.
Fot-Net Data is a community where experts and stakeholders are encouraged to share their knowledge, test new ideas and reach consensus on new knowledge. FOT-Net Data, Field Operational Test Networking and Data Sharing Support, is a 3-year support action project to support the efficient sharing and re-use of available FOT (Field Operational Tests) datasets, develop and promote a framework for data sharing, build a detailed catalogue of available data and tools and operate an international networking platform for FOT activities.
The FOT-Net Data project keeps the momentum of the FOT network and delivers new perspectives with regard to the sharing and re-usage of the available FOT-Net Data sets. Sharing collected valuable datasets from the recent years will yield further research results, support education at high levels and contribute to market introduction of improved vehicle ICT.
The FOT-Net Data activities included the FOT wiki and catalogue (http://wiki.fot-net.eu). The FOT catalogue – set up as a wiki tool maintained by the FOT community – serves as a reference for all FOT organisers. The FOT Wiki is a growing source of information on FOT projects in Europe (national and European) and across the world. The FOT-Net Data project will continue the further expand this data source by including a catalogue and description of available datasets. It will work together with data owners to bring more data available.
