The data recorded by an increasing number of sensors installed in cars, e-bikes and mobile phones has the potential to revolutionize the field of accident research and prevention. The opportunities are limitless. But so are the challenges. And one of the main challenges is: access. In this project we explore legal and technological opportunities for improving access to sensor data.

  • Clients: Federal Roads Office FEDRO
  • Partners: SDSC, DTC, HDC, ZHAW
  • Methods: Literature review, surveys, workshops, modeling, legal analysis
  • Timeframe: 2022-2023
  • Results: Report to FEDRO

Timely information on accidents, children at play or black ice on the road ahead, for instance, can help cars adjust their speed. Data on abrupt braking incidents and tire skidding can help identify dangerous situations and locations.
Even though it is in the public interest to share data to make our roads safer, data access is often restricted. Vehicle manufacturers, component and service providers block access to protect their intellectual property and business model. End users reject access to their data out of fear of misuse.

Providing access to sensor data
To prevent the misuse and the missed use of data, we urgently need new legal and technological means to safely share sensor data for accident research and prevention purposes. Therefore, we will explore legal and technological solutions for balancing

  • the strong public interests in favor of sharing data to make our roads safer with
  • the legitimate commercial interests of vehicle manufacturers, equipment and service providers as well as
  • the data privacy rights of individuals.

Who we are
We are very excited about the experience and expertise that our team brings to the table:

  • Heinz Reber from DTC is a leading expert in the field of accident reconstruction. He will help us understand the data needs from the accident reconstruction side.
  • Prof. Dr. Sylvain Métille and Marie-Laure Percassi from HDC and the University of Lausanne are among Switzerland’s leading data protection experts.
  • Dr. Eric Bouillet, Dr. Oksana Riba Grognuz und Dr. Sabrina Ossey from Swiss Data Science Center of the ETH and EPFL will contribute their expertise in designing fair and responsible data sharing ecosystems.
  • Prof. Dr. Markus Hackenfort und Tanja Stoll from the ZHAW will provide their expertise in the field of human factors psychology and will help us define the data needs from the perspective of the research community.
  • Dr. Niclas Meyer from BSS will lead the project. His expertise lies in the field of innovation policy, technology governance and digital transformation.
  • Sensor daten basierte Unfallforschung
