Round Table: Smart road and self-driving car: what prospects for privacy?
Self-driving cars and the intelligent infrastructures that communicate with them collect and record an enormous amount of data: some purely technical, but others also personal. What are the guarantees for the privacy of road users and residents in a smart area? The conditions of lawfulness of processing, rights of the data subject, security measures and implementation of privacyfriendly technologies are discussed by the scholars who, within the Legal and Ethics working group of the MASA project, deal with data protection? Event in collaboration with the Interdepartmental Research Center on Discrimination and Vulnerability (CRID) - UNIMORE and Privacy Observatory - “Marco Biagi” Foundation.
