FOT-Net held a webinar on “Navigating the FESTA Methodology from the perspective of Nomadic Devices FOTs” on 31October 2011.
FOT-Net has been in place for over three years as the networking platform for stakeholders involved or interested in FOTs. The European Commission has confirmed funding for another 3 years. While the focus so far was mainly on building up the FOT network and promoting the FESTA methodology, this new phase explicitly addresses issues raised by the FOT network which need common European positions.
The FESTA methodology has been further refined, based on recent FOT experiences and on input collected from seminars organised by FOT-Net. FOT-Net has revised and adapted the FESTA methodology for FOTs on ADAS, nomadic devices, cooperative systems and naturalistic driving. Subsequent to this revision five new expert working groups will be created to clarify critical topics related to legal and ethical issues, data analysis, incident definition, impact assessment, and data sharing.
The webinar presented the main revisions that were made to the FESTA Handbook and discussed how the newly revised FESTA Handbook can be applied to FOTs on nomadic devices.
