Operation sites description and planning

This deliverable presents the seven operating sites (OS): Austria (PTWs, KFV), France (Cars, CEESAR), Germany (Cars, DLR), Netherlands (Trucks, TNO), Poland (Cars, IBDIM), Spain (PTWs, CIDAUT), UK (Cars, UNIVLEEDS/LOUGHBOROU). Each OS determines its geographical coverage and personnel responsible for trial operation. They confirm compliance with the global schedule and with site specific schedules. Further planning issues consider participant liaison strategies, collection of subjective data, data acquisition system installation and maintenance procedure, data collection and management, data and operational quality assurance, end of trial management and ethical ap-proval and legal issues. All OS planned the trials following the common guidelines, but also accommodated the trial preparation to local circumstances.
