CAR-BITS.de, for Secure Data Processing in Cars
CAR-BITS.de ensures data privacy in the automotive industry. Its task is to protect the privacy of big data from sensor systems in vehicles.
In connected cars, sensors communicate location, road condition, and speed data. Said data must not be correlatable to a specific person. Uniscon is working on a prototype, that evaluates big data without compromising privacy rights, with Continental Automotive, the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied and Integrated Security AISEC, and the Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences.
The purpose of the CAR-BITS.de pilot, is to evaluate vehicle data in compliance with privacy law. A service platform is to make vehicle data available to multiple applications. This woulde allow users to benefit from traffic big data.
The purpose of connected cars is to increase road traffic safety. At the same time, analysis of vehicle big data should not compromise a driver’s right to informational self-determination.
