Impact evaluation of speed regulation systems using naturalistic driving data: the EuroFOT example

The goal of this paper is to present the work done by IFSTTAR and CEESAR during the first large scale field operational test in Europe: the EuroFOT project. During the project duration, the FESTA methodology has been applied in real conditions for the first time, in order to evaluate 8 different mature driving assistance systems. The French partners were in charge of performing an impact assessment of the speed regulation system, which is a bundle of two different functions: speed limiter, and cruise control. In this paper, we present the overall process of performing such an evaluation using naturalistic driving data coming from 35 drivers from Paris region. We provide the reader with technical, practical, and methodological aspects, with a focus to the lessons learned. The general conclusion takes profit from the results to determine the best practice for evaluating the impacts of a longitudinal driving assistance system.
