    This report describes the execution of pilot tests within the SAFER-LC project. Specifically, this report concerns the implementation and the execution of the tests built in various level crossing environments in different countries. Simulation tools (in-vitro) and prototype systems running in close-to-reality situations under controlled conditions were used for better understanding human reaction to the proposed measures and to optimize the system operation and design, by means of testing and fine-tuning the solutions developed within the project. Additionally, various measures were tested under these environments for cases too dangerous or complex to test in the real-world pilot activities. The integrated tests were implemented in the test-track hosted by the Aachen University, where the whole chain, from detection and communication to awareness increase and barriers operation have been demonstrated. In addition, some functionalities were tested under real-world conditions. The simulation, controlled and field tests were carried based on the use cases defined in the beginning of the project.
