    Abstract

    Evaluation in TEAM (Tomorrow's Elastic Adaptive Mobility) EU-project developed and combined several approaches and methodologies. The overall objective of the evaluation was to assess the impacts of various collaborative applications designed for drivers and travellers on mobility, safety, efficiency and environment. The main approach in TEAM was a carefully selected combination of subjective and objective methods and measures designed for each test site. The overall set of methods included traffic microsimulations, expert assessments and user interviews and questionnaires conducted in connection with the user tests in each test site. Due to the new collaboration paradigm, the user acceptance and intended behaviour was a central part of the evaluation for many applications. The scope of the overall evaluation was not limited to drivers and hence private cars as a mode, but covered travelling by various modes, including multimodality. In addition, the key stakeholders such as road authorities and cities were included into the evaluation of new applications.
