In October 2021, the SECREDAS consortium showcased the exciting results of its efforts to bring integrated security, safety and privacy solutions to the autonomous systems markets. By having delivered on-road validation tests that evidence that all three domains can be covered simultaneously, we believe that we have helped the automotive market convince car manufacturers and consumers that connected and autonomous vehicles will be safe to buy, use or share. We also showcased a number of safety and security technologies for rail-road applications and demonstrated the secure and GDPR-proof monitoring and analysis of driver health data via the cloud.
Our contribution was on ensuring that vehicle occupants and other road users remain safe in case a connected or autonomous vehicle is maliciously attacked by an external hacker and several other ‘typical’ use cases. We presented the outcomes of our validation tests, over 40 individual technology components and integrated demonstrators that make up the various solutions. These integrated solutions were subsequently tested in real-live use cases against a range of external threats.
The SECREDAS conference took place on the 19th and 20th of October at the Helmond Automotive Campus (NL) as a fully COVID-19 regulation compliant ‘in-person’ event with over 160 participants. These included SECREDAS consortium members, but also their invited supply-chain guests as well as representatives from various national public and automotive agencies. Part of the conference was also streamed. The conference included a series of workshop.in which the participants discussed how to further increase consumer acceptance of autonomous driving, the possibilities of cooperative mobility based on C-ITS, and new requirements for standardisation.
SECREDAS ‘in person’ project conference was open to consortium members and invited public and private stakeholders. The registration process is now closed. The conference agenda can still be downloaded below. If you would like any further information about the project or its outcomes, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note on COVID19 compliance during the conference: On the 14th of September 2021, the Dutch government issued new COVID19 rules. These rules, which remained valid until the 1st of November 2021, stated that large indoor seated and non-seated events were allowed to take place. Participants were only allowed to enter the conference building after providing proof of full vaccination, or a negative COVID-test issued less than 24 hours before.
The SECREDAS project featured prominently in a panel discussion during the 2021 GPDP global conference on “Enforcing rights in a changing world”, which was held from 27-29 January 2021. As a world-leading multidisciplinary conference, CPDP offers the cutting edge in legal, regulatory, academic and technological development in privacy and data protection.
Co-chaired by SECREDAS partner organisation Several SECREDAS partners were moderators and speakers during the discussion:
Learn how Collective Perception supports the automotive industry to bridge the era where non-connected and autonomous cars are on the road simultaneously.
When we talk about it, we frequently use the term “the self-driving car” as a singular object – however, the autonomous technology will transform transportation’s nature from individual to cooperative, by allowing the sharing of information, perceptions and intentions between different players, making it possible to solve a traffic situation in a collective way.
V2X (Vehicle-to-everything) is the main enabler of the transformation to Collective Perception.
In this webinar, András Váradi, Research Director of V2X developer Commsignia, provides an overview of the roadmap on what technologies and solutions are aiding autonomous vehicles to share information about not only themselves, but their surroundings as well, making transportation safer and more sustainable.
His presentation outlines Day 1, Day 2 and Day 3 features and introduces Collective Perception Messages as the next big step towards the autonomous vehicle. Váradi also clarifies what kinds of information sharing protocols are available and give an outlook on further technologies that will be based on such shared knowledge, like misbehaviour detection. The webinar will thus also offer a sneak peek into the EU-ECSEL funded “SECREDAS” trial project.

This interactive workshop organized by the ECSEL SECREDAS project, will collect concerns from different stakeholders such as certification bodies, governments, end-users, manufacturers, tier-1 suppliers and discuss directions for future solutions. Several application areas will be addressed among which connected cars, railway, and health systems.
