The NTC is assessing whether Australia’s current information access framework applying to government collection and use of information is sufficient to protect privacy given the significant developments in transport technology. In particular, we need to consider the existing regulations in light of the types and amount of information that future transport systems could produce.
We are focusing on two areas that form a limited part of intelligent transport systems (ITS): cooperative ITS (C-ITS) and automated vehicles.
In August 2019 the Transport and Infrastructure Council endorsed broad design principles for government access to C-ITS and automated vehicle technology. These are set out in the NTC’s policy paper Regulating government access to C-ITS and automated vehicle data. The design principles will guide the NTC’s development of laws to regulate government access to automated vehicle data for compliance and enforcement purposes, and Austroads development of the National Intelligent Transport Systems Architecture Framework.
