The overall objectives of the TeleFOT project are to
evaluate the impact of nomadic and
aftermarket devices (ND) on four impact areas:
efficiency, environment, mobility and
safety. The fifth area to be investigated is user uptake.
By user uptake is here meant the
extent to which users adopt and integrate the ND and the
functions offered into their
everyday life, i.e. invest in them, use them and make use
of the functions in relation to
planning and undertaking journeys by car and/or by other
means of transport.
The primary objectives of this deliverable, D4.7.2.
Implications of Take Up, are to present
(i) the results of a preliminary analysis regarding user
uptake of functions and (ii) an
assessment of the feasibility of the initial analysis
plan as proposed in D4.7.1. Take-Up of
Functions. Data Analysis Plan.
The deliverable provides a summary of the results from
data collected in the Swedish pilot
study, the before phase of the Swedish L-FOT2 and in the
before phase of the Finnish LFOT.
The results indicate that willingness to pay exists but
the sum that the participants
are willing to pay each month for access to functions is
between 1-10 EURO. Furthermore
acceptance, i.e. the participants' inclination to keep
the devices and functions, is
influenced by several factors. Perceived usefulness is
one important factor. Trust in the
information and function appear to be another factor.
Initial, anticipated effects are likely to
change over time. For some functions the change may be
positive, for others it may be
negative depending upon the participants initial
anticipation and the outcome of the tests. It
appears as though the anticipated positive effects are
higher for the Green Driving Support
and the Speed Alert/Speed Limit Information than for
Navigation Support and Traffic
Information. Furthermore the anticipated effects are
predominantly linked to the main
purpose of the function (e.g. change in speed) while
effects on a higher level are not.
Adoption of function in terms of effect on speed
(safety), in terms of choice of route and/or
mode of transport (mobility), or as effect on fuel
consumption (environment), are addressed
by the respective impact areas. The results of the pilot
study and the before phase of the LFOTs
indicate that the expected as well as reported changes
