The Journal of Robotics, Artificial Intelligence & Law
Alja Poler De Zwart authored an article for The Journal of Robotics, Artificial Intelligence & Law covering the European Data Protection Board’s (EDPB) guidelines on processing personal data in the context of connected vehicles and mobility related applications.
“Stakeholders using data generated by ‘Connected Vehicles,’ which are smart vehicles that are equipped with electronic control units (ECUs), will need to review their data collecting, processing, and sharing processes and procedures, and ensure compliance with the recommendations set out in the Guidelines,” Alja wrote.
She added: “The ECUs can be linked together via an in-vehicle network as well as connectivity facilities that allow sharing of information with other devices both inside and outside the vehicle. They can include mobile applications that might (1) connect to a vehicle’s entertainment unit, or (2) work as standalone applications that assist drivers or passengers (such as GPS navigation on smart phones). The EDPB does limit the scope of the Guidelines to mobile applications that are related to the driving environment. So other applications that suggest, for example, places of interest (such as restaurants or museums) are out of scope.”
