Regulating government access to C-ITS and automated vehicle data

30 November 2018

Access to co-operative intelligent transport systems (C-ITS) and automated vehicle (AV) data should be limited to uses that benefit the general public and improve safety outcomes.

Data generated by C-ITS and AV technologies offers the potential to underpin continued innovation in transport safety and efficiency. However, operators using these systems in their fleets have highlighted the need for driver confidence regarding the protection of their privacy.  

A strong regulatory framework for data access and privacy regarding automated and intelligent technologies is essential to industry uptake.

Particular emphasis must be placed on the establishment of

  • Protections relating to data from biometric, biological or health monitoring technologies
  • Incorporation of additional privacy limitations necessary to maintain individual privacy.
