Appendix 2 – On-site Compliance Test

The applicant is required to conduct an on-site compliance test at HKIA, at the applicant’s own cost, to demonstrate the applicant’s compliance to the basic requirements set out below. The Authority will not allow more than 3 nos. of people from each applicant to conduct the on-site compliance test. The Applicant shall comply with the following:

(a) The accuracy of outdoor location tracking by GNSS technology shall achieve at least 70% of reported location within +/- 10 meters of its actual location. (b) The accuracy of outdoor speed tracking by GNSS technology shall achieve at

least 70% of reported vehicle speed within +/- 10% of actual speed of the vehicle. The vehicle speed from dashboard odometer will be used as reference.

As the HKIA is a busy airport with round-the-clock operations, the on-site compliance test will only be arranged mostly at small hours of assigned day on quarterly basis, which may subject to change with the Authority’s prior notice. The Authority will send an invitation to the applicant for inviting applicant to conduct the on-site compliance test. In the invitation, the Authority will provide details of the actual time schedule for the applicant to prepare and arrange the on-site compliance test. Designated driver and vehicle would be provided by the Authority for the test.

Failure to achieve the passing scores as stated below will be disqualified and shall not be proceeded further.

(1) Test Scenario 1

Test scenario 1 is aimed to check the compliance of accuracy for location and speed tracking. A designed parking stand would be selected to conduct the test.

Figure1 – Test Location for Outdoor Tracking

Location Test loop 66m x 48m Vehicle moves at speed of around 22 km/h (i.e. 6.1m/s) S pe ed T es t Z one

Speed Test Lane ~100m long

Vehicle accelerate from zero to around 33 km/s (i.e. 9.17m/s) then decelerate to zero

(10)

Issue No. 2 Page 9 of 11

The applicant should install their onboard unit (aka GPS tracker) near the windscreen of the designed vehicle assigned by the Authority and connect to the vehicle temporary power source (i.e. cigarette lighter receptacle). The applicant shall configure the onboard unit with over-speed alert threshold of 30km/h. A driver designated by the Authority shall drive at a speed of around 22 km/h along the test route shown in Figure 1 which is about 228m long, i.e. 37s per trip at 22 km/h.

The location test shall be conducted in two sessions of 6 minutes each, with 12 rounds of testing round shall be expected, while the data of first and last round would be excluded from examination. The Authority will record the data under the 10 out of 12 rounds of testing, and it is anticipated that around 370 location data would be recorded. The reported location should then be cross checked with the reference location.

The driver shall then start speed test at the location shown in Figure 1 which is about 100m long. The test shall be conducted in five sessions. The driver shall accelerate from 0 km/h to about 33 km/h when entering the test zone and start decelerate to 0 km/h when leaving the test zone. At least 4 over-speed alerts should be recorded in each session and it is anticipated that around 20 over-speed data would be recorded. The reported speed should then be cross checked with the reference speed.

After the test, the Authority shall formulate a report, with the consent of the applicant, demonstrating the recorded result in table format. The test result shall indicate the follows:

1. Number of location data achieve the location accuracy requirement of +/- 10 meters;

2. % of location data achieve the location accuracy requirement of +/- 10 meters; 3. Number of speeding data achieve the speed accuracy requirement of +/- 10%

of actual value;

4. % of speeding data achieve the speed accuracy requirement of +/- 10% of actual value;

Passing Score: above 70% of recorded data achieve relevant accuracy requirement.
