With the increase in automation of vehicles and the rise of driver monitoring systems in those vehicles, privacy and data protection concerns become more relevant for the automotive sector. Monitoring systems could contribute to road safety, by for instance warning the driver if he is dozing off. But keeping such a close eye on the user of the vehicle has legal implications. Within the European Union, the data gathered through the monitoring system, and the automated vehicle as a whole, will have to be collected and processed in conformity with the General Data Protection Regulation. By means of a use case, the different types of data, including health data, and the different requirements applicable to the collecting and processing of those types of data will be explored. Thereby, this contribution will give insights into the consequences of the GDPR for the collecting and processing of data gathered by automated vehicles.
