FESTA CONSORTIUM, 2008. FESTA Support Action
Field opErational teSt supporT Action D2.1 - A comprehensive framework of performance indicators and their interaction.
The FESTA PI Matrix is a document containing Performance Indicators that can be used to assess
safety, efficiency, environmental and acceptance aspects in a Field Operational Test (FOT). The list
was compiled by a number of experts who used their own experience and the literature as basis.
The list is meant to be used as a tool both during the planning phase and during the analysis phase
of an FOT. It should also be of help for budget decisions, as it can aid the user in estimating sensor
costs, for example, but also in estimating how intricate and time intensive certain analyses are.
The list is meant to be used by people with background knowledge in the field, it does not substitute
a solid education in traffic research. Even though the list is quite comprehensive, it is by no means
exhaustive, which means that existing and established Performance Indicators might not be
included, even though some effort has been made to cover all aspects that nowadays can be
measured in a reasonable way in an FOT. The list can be extended and new Performance Indicators
can be added.
