DBIS organizes "Privacy in ITS Applications Workshop"
As a partner of the EU project PRECIOSA the DBIS research group will host the Privacy in ITS Applications Workshop on July 20, 2010, just before the Privacy Enhancing Technology Symposium which will take place July 21 to 24, 2010.
Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) bring the promise of improved safety, more comfort, better environment preservation, and optimised energy consumption. Mobile communication today allows for the deployment of services such as eCall, pay-per-use and road charging. In the future, vehicular communications (VC) and inter-vehicular communications (IVC) capability will pave the way to new applications such as extended hazard warning in safety critical situations, enhanced blind spot applications, and safe lane change assistance.
However, all these applications involve the sharing of significant amount of data, and it is not clear what their impact is on privacy and whether they are compliant with data protection requirements. The objective of this workshop is to investigate how privacy and data protection can be taken into account, in the design phase as well as the architecture and technology levels, and to discuss how stakeholders can build consensus on a pan-European approach.
