This paper describes the methodological framework of the COMPASS4D project, which aims to deploy cooperative mobility systems in seven European cities during a one-year full scale pilot. The underpinning approach to data handling, quality controls and analysis is specified, along with the experimental design, describing the split between two separate baseline and operation phases, performance simulation, and quantitative and qualitative data collection. The approach to network performance modelling, which extrapolates the impacts of the deployed COMPASS4D services to whole cities, both at the infrastructure and fleet sides, is outlined. The full paper and presentation will disseminate results from the provision of services under real world conditions, including simulation and network performance modelling activities, showing how Compass 4D services can move beyond trial deployments to extend across whole cities and networks.
