Paper: Anonymization of Data from Field Operational Tests

This paper will be presented at ITS European Congress Glasgow, in June 2016.

Data anonymization is a rising topic and is included in the EU’s ITS directive. It brings new requirements for products and projects. Plans to arrange Field Operational Tests on connected ITS systems and automated driving are part of the European 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 data sets, concentrating especially on video and GPS data.
