This deliverable presents the full and final analysis results in relation to the safety impact assessment. It then draws upon these results to discuss the impact that the functions provided by Nomadic Devices have upon safety. The deliverable is structured so as to present the key results for each Research Question (RQ) and Hypothesis within the main body of the report. These main results are then restructured on a function basis in order to assess the impact of each function upon; • Route Choice • Distance Travelled • Distraction • Speed • Lane positioning • Braking behaviour • Manual activity Further supporting analysis for each RQ is provided in Annex 1. Subsequently, an evaluation is made relating any impacts observed to consequences for safety. This evaluation is made using results that refer to singular functions; results from Field operational tests (FOT) that evaluated bundles of functions are included within the results sections for each Research Question but not included within the evaluation. This is since there are no current rigorous methods accepted within the research community for dealing with bundles of functions; this is being discussed and considered within the revision of the FESTA handbook.
