• Prologue

    Promoting real Life Observations for Gaining Understanding of road user behaviour in Europe

United Kingdom

Regional workshop in English speaking countries

The stakeholder workshop on 21 January 2011 in London served a dual purpose - the timing was such that the PROLOGUE workshop coincided with a similar workshop requirement for a parallel European Project known as TeleFOT. Thus all stakeholders were invited to discuss not only Naturalistic Driving studies but also the requirements within the associated data collection tool, Field Operational Tests (FOTs).
