Abstract

The TEAM (Tomorrow's Elastic Adaptive Mobility) FP7 EU-project is developing new collaborative transport solutions. The solutions are aiming at improving safety, mobility and efficiency of transport, and at the same time decreasing the environmental load from road transport. Collaborative systems should be understood as extension of cooperative systems, moving the focus from a vehicle2x perspective towards a traveller2traveller communication and collaboration perspective. The impact of the systems depends greatly on their technical performance but also on users' acceptance and behavior. How well are they adopting the new technology, are they are willing to act as input to the systems, and are they are willing to change their (travelling) behavior according to the guidance given by the systems and the benefit of the community of travelers are questions that need to be answered in order to understand the viability and further impacts of the TEAM applications. Hence, the evaluation of applications developed in the TEAM project needs to cover specifically these aspects and shall answer on different abstraction levels questions on impact, user acceptance and technical performance.
