Abstract: The aim of Deliverable 3.4.1 is to present the plans for the Field Operational Tests (FOT) to be conducted within the framework of the TeleFOT project. The Deliverable is structured into 9 main chapters, each dealing with a consecutive step of the procedure in order to define and present the overall approach developed within TeleFOT for testing nomadic devices in FOTs that are taking place in 8 different countries throughout Europe. The first chapter is dealing with the definition of functions to be tested and their distribution throughout the test sites, either large scale (LFOT) or detailed (DFOT), as well as a reference to the impact areas that these functions cover. In Chapter 2, the Use Cases that have been formulated, following the selection and definition of functions are being presented. Detailed tables of each use case are included in Annex I of the present. In order to avoid possible shortcomings in the duration of the tests, a contingency plan has been defined, taking into account different risks and proposing possible mitigation measures. The methodology and analysis of the contingency plan are included in Chapter 3. Following, in Chapter 4, an overview of the different sites is elaborated, through a short description of each site and its main evaluation aims. The detailed description of the test sites is elaborated in D3.3.1 of TeleFOT. The different assessment categories, according to which the analysis and assessment of the results of the FOTs will be performed, are presented in Chapter 5. More specifically, the main assessment categories, or impact areas, that are of focus within TeleFOT are: Safety, Mobility, Efficiency, Environment and User Uptake. Then, in Chapter 6, the evaluation methods to be used are presented. These include questionnaires, travel diaries, individual interviews, etc. The complete set of questionnaire templates to be used before, during and after the tests is listed in Annex II. Chapter 7 deals with the pre-assessment of the expected impact by first identifying the third-party stakeholders that are going to be involved in the process and their roles and then describing the expected impact per function. This is also linked with the contents of Chapter 8, in which the experimental assessment objectives are being discussed, of course at preliminary basis, as this will be further clarified during the elaboration of the tests. Finally, in Chapter 9, the detailed plans per site are illustrated, including the description of the study design, the baseline condition, the research questions, hypotheses (full list per impact area in Annex III) and indicators to be tested, the actual testing procedure, etc.
