This report is the document summarising the testing experience and knowledge gained from the physical testing activities within the eVALUE project. The document contains brief introductions to the testing scenarios as well as short summaries of conclusions. Appended to this document are the testing reports that have been compiled during the different test sessions. Physical testing at test tracks all across Europe has been the main input in the development of scenarios and test procedures. This document describes the development tests that have been performed during 2010, based on a first draft set of testing protocols. The experience from the performed tests has been used as an important input to the revision of the testing protocols, i.e. the formal documents that describe how a test should be performed and evaluated. These protocols are documented in the separate Deliverable 3.2.
