W3C 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
For more information on the workshop, please see the workshop details and submission instructions. Expressions of interest and position statements are due by 8 July 2019.
