FOT-Net Data will be present at this year’s ITS European Congress in Glasgow with the presentation of the paper “Anonymization of Data from Field Operational Tests” and the session SW03 “Towards a methodology for Field Operational Tests for automated vehicles”.

TS27 – Security and privacy issues for C-ITS (Wednesday 8 June – 14:00-15:30)

The paper “Anonymization of Data from Field Operational Tests” will be presented during the Technical Session “Security and privacy issues for C-ITS”.

Data anonymization is a rising topic also included in the EU’s ITS directive. It brings new requirements for products and projects. Plans to arrange Field Operational Tests (FOT) on connected systems (C-ITS) and automated driving are part of the H2020 research and innovation programme. Data sharing will be an important part of those projects, aiming at widely studying the test data. Without anonymization and other data post-processing techniques to strip the logs of personal and confidential information, data sharing cannot happen or at least, will require extensive non-disclosure agreements between several organisations. This paper discusses the state of the art on data sharing and anonymization techniques for FOT datasets, concentrating especially on video and GPS data.

SW03 – “Towards a methodology for Field Operational Tests for automated vehicles” (Wednesday 8 June -9:00-10:30)

Companies and research organisations are developing large-scale Field Operational Tests (FOTs) and Pilots for automated vehicles in order to assess behaviour of the users, the automated vehicles and the surrounding traffic environment in order to evaluate the impact on traffic management, safety and the environment.

To improve significance, comparability and transferability of up-coming FOT results at the national and European level, a common methodology should be applied. Taking into account the FESTA methodology which gives guidance on the organisational issues, methodology, procedures, and evaluation to current FOTs, this session will debate aspects related to the new challenges of a common methodology to be applied to automation pilots.

To attend these sessions, you will have to register for the ITS European Congress. The Early Bird registration closes on 18 April.
