The current Deliverable outlines the actual planning for the execution of the SAFEWAY2SCHOOL Pilots and is prepared in the context of WP7: “Verification Pilots evaluation” and specifically A7.1: “Evaluation Framework”. Pilots are experiments with users, which aim to contribute to the overall evaluation of the SAFEWAY2SCHOOL system. Pilots are an integral part of the final implementation of the SAFEWAY2SCHOOL system. Thus, it is important that Pilots are organised to cover all needs across SAFEWAY2SCHOOL subsystems or units, different users, different environments, etc. To this end, the aim of this Deliverable is to organise the Pilots of SAFEWAY2SCHOOL project in an optimal way with respect to the overall project objectives. The Pilot plan Deliverable should be considered as a living document, since minor changes may occur until the actual realisation of the Pilots. The aim of this document is to lay the foundation for the SAFEWAY2SCHOOL system evaluation. It covers what should be measured, broken down into the responsibilities of each pilot site, including the German simulator site. The document also provides a theoretical background to the pilot site testing, i.e., why should the appointed variables be measured. Lastly, it covers how each of the variables should be measured, also broken down into the responsibilities of each pilot site, including the German simulator site. The current Deliverable presents in detail the evaluation plans that have been developed in the context of the SAFEWAYSCHOOL project for the evaluation of the system under development.
