Abstract: On the basis of systems & functions identified in WP5 nomadic devices, the Nomadic Device team in FESTA has focused its efforts to find a generic method to answer these following questions: • What are the relevant nomadic devices services to be tested in an FOT? • What are the relevant use cases lists that correspond to mature systems? • How to identify & prepare the research & questions towards nomadic devices? • How to link hypotheses to indicators and concrete measurements during the FOT? In the annex, the reader will find a list answering partially these questions but most important the process was used to setup a methodology for the selection of the systems and functions and the identification of the research questions for future FOTs addressing Nomadic Devices. Therefore, this document provides a procedure on how to build a list of functions and hypotheses taking into account issues with a holistic point of view on safety, mobility, environment, business and implementation rather than providing an exhaustive list of functions or hypotheses which would need to be tested in an FOT. The main chapter of this document describes 5 steps to go from the definition of the relevant functions and systems to the hypotheses to be tested during an FOT. Eventually, the hypotheses will lead to a list of indicators and measures which will help the study design of your FOT. The five steps are: • Step 1: Selection and description of Functions • Step 2: Definition of use cases and situations • Step 3: Identification of the Research Questions • Step 4: Creation of Hypotheses • Step 5: Link Hypotheses with indicators for quantitative analyses Building the right list of functions and their hypotheses will be the basis of a good FOT. Understanding the political, societal and technical benefit of the FOT as a whole before it has even started is a key to its successful outcome. It is therefore strongly advised to put considerable effort and time on this preliminary work which might seems more paper-like before starting the exciting implementation of the devices and functions for large-scale testing.
