W3C Data Models for Transportation Workshop page banner imageW3C announced today a Workshop on Data Models for Transportation, 12-13 September 2019, in Palo Alto, CA, USA. The event is hosted by Uber.

The primary goal of the workshop is to bring together data architects, product owners/managers, business development, corporate strategy and innovation from the various industries and sectors that will be the future of transportation.

Expected topics of discussion include:

  • Profiles, an ontology for drivers, passengers, delivery¬†recipients.
  • Vehicle data – on-board (VSS) and in-cloud ontology (VSSo)
  • Trip information – handling addition modes of transportation besides vehicle eg rail, urban air mobility, plane and potentially for data collected while traversing the route, observations from cameras and sensors.
  • Vehicle service ledger representing repairs, replacement and aftermarket parts, tires, oil changes and other maintenance
  • Fueling and charging records to track a vehicles’ efficiency
  • Accessibility — Identifying accessibility-related considerations for ontologies, including for driver and passenger profiles, and vehicle data; as well as user interface aspects of consent and charging records; also how accessibility intersects with privacy or other considerations.
  • Privacy & consent – data considerations for the capture and representation of usage limits and consent grants.
  • metadata – A session on standards for dataset modeling, provenance, and policies for data access. relevant existing or proposed ontologies (sampling methodology, consent capture and accompanying policy language representation)
  • Anonymization and broader distribution of information for Federated Learning to improve AI behind autonomous vehicle efforts and other research
  • Business cases and need for open, inter-operable standards in transportation space
