On Thursday May 17th 3rd TIMON Workshop for End Users was held at Ljubljana Castle. Of more than 100 users that were invited to this workshop 30 of them had time to attend. Users got information about overall project flow, services and scenarios planned to be tested and TIMON MobileApp functionality. Main part of the Workshop was grouping the end users into different test groups based on their interests and prefered form of transport.

Workshop with end users

There are two ways of testing the scenarios - everyday - where users are independent and can do the testing on their own time and specific tests where a group of user has to meet at specific time at specific location and perform the test under the guidance of test leader. Testing of the services and application via different scenarios is planned until the end of the project in November 2018, during this time 3 separate weeks are dedicated for specific test with user grups being asked to participate at specific location at specific time.

Guided tests in Ljubljana

First Week of specific scenario tests took place from May 28th to June 1st in Ljubljana where more than 20 users participated in testing of 30 scenarios (Vehicle Density awareness, Safe Route Validation, Collision Alert, Emergency Vehicle, Road Hazard Warning, Multimodal Dynamic Route Calculation scenarios) involving drivers, public transport commuters, motorcyclists and bicyclists over a 5 day period. After each scenario test users provided instant feedback which is very valuable for developers trying to improve the functionalities and increase the level of user satisfaction based on user experience before the next specific testing week in July 2018.
