SHOW pilot experimental plans and assessment framework published

10 June 2021

SHOW aims to support the migration path towards effective and persuasive sustainable urban transport through technical solutions, business models and priority scenarios for impact assessment, by deploying shared, connected, electrified fleets of automated vehicles in coordinated Public Transport (PT), Demand Responsive Transport (DRT), Mobility as a Service (MaaS) and Logistics as a Service (LaaS) operational chains in real-life urban demonstrations.

At this point, comprehensive frameworks for evaluations of such an ecosystem are not yet available in full. With regards to this, one important part of SHOW is the development of a detailed framework of the evaluation of the pre-demonstrations and demonstrations.

More specifically, within SHOW, an impact methodology has been created denoted M3ICA (multi-impact, multi-criteria, and multi-actor), which allows for consistent analysis and evaluation of demonstrations and simulations within the ecosystem of electric connected automated vehicles. The developed impact assessment methodology brings together existing impact assessment frameworks on AVs.

To allow for a comprehensive impact assessment, all data captured at the different demonstration sites will be collected in a consistent format including all necessary information. The subjective data will be collected through a centralised webtool and objective data will be collected and stored locally at the sites and/or centrally in the project Data Collection Platform.

Specific KPIs and other important data will be visualised in the local test site dashboards, when existing, and in an aggregated manner in the central SHOW Dashboard. The evaluation framework is expected to be updated to cover the full experimental design for the final demonstrations of the project.
