Regulating government access to C-ITS and AV data


Transport systems could produce new types and larger amounts of data in the future. We are looking at whether Australia’s current rules for government collection and use of data will continue to protect individual privacy as transport technology develops.

We focused on two areas that form a limited part of intelligent transport systems (ITS). These are cooperative ITS (C-ITS) and automated vehicles.

Project outcomes

The Transport and Infrastructure Council have endorsed design principles for government access to C-ITS and automated vehicle data. These are set out in the NTC 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.

Latest news

Addressing the privacy challenges of government access to information generated by AVs is the subject of our latest discussion paper for consultation.

The NTC today released two policy papers on the future regulation of automated vehicles (AVs) in Australia.
