    This paper describes a framework for evaluating the impacts of automated driving progressed by Internet of Things (IoT) on quality of life (QoL). The work is carried out under the European H2020 programme in the AUTOPILOT project. The evaluation framework addresses the impact of different use cases on personal mobility, sustainability and well-being. The challenge is approached from three angles: how IoT can accelerate, enhance or enable the development, functionalities, performance and benefits of automated driving functions (ADF). An overview of the methodological approach for analysing the large-scale impact of connected and automated driving on QoL is provided, challenges related to the evaluation of pilot tests are discussed and first results presented. Use cases include automated valet parking, urban driving, highway pilot, platooning and car sharing.
