Paper: Data Sharing Framework for Naturalistic Driving Data

This technical paper was presented at the European World Congress 2015.

This paper describes the content of a proposed Data Sharing Framework for data collected in Field Operational Tests and in Naturalistic Driving Studies. These projects gather data regarding the driver behaviour in relation to the vehicle, ITS and traffic environment during normal driving. Huge amounts of data are stored from these tests and could be re-used in many different fields of road transport research, e.g. safety, automated driving or mobility, to understand the human behaviour in different traffic environments. The framework includes topics such as description of data and metadata, data protection, research support services and topics to address in agreements to make data re-use possible. The purpose of the framework is to facilitate global data sharing and re-use and thereby enhance the availability of data for future research in ITS.
