Generic Data Expert Group Topics

Best Practices General

Best Practices Security and Data Privacy


  • Status: Roadmap currently being discussed. See minutes for details.
  • Focus is on the VSS Feeder, VSS Data Stores and Data Servers components and the benefits and methods for connecting them.
  • Design pattern expected on data hierarchies. Computation on the function edge leads to higher level data (VSS), which is then synched elsewhere in vehicle for further processing. This reduces network traffic and lowers transmission cost to the cloud.
  • Some supporting PoCs likely.

Data Models and Ontologies


  • VSC roadmap unclear (vision exists, but no tangible roadmap)
  • No labels
