US regulators proposing installation of "black box" in all cars starting in 2014

http://www.wired.com/threatlevel/201...boxes-privacy/

Quote:
Federal regulators are proposing that new automobiles sold in the United States after September 2014 come equipped with black boxes, so-called “event data recorders” that chronicle everything from how fast a vehicle was traveling, the number of passengers and even a car’s location.
...
Clearly, regulators’ intentions are about safety, as the devices would trigger — for about 30 seconds — during so-called “events” such as during sudden breaking, acceleration, swerving or other types of driving that might lead to an accident. The data, which can either be downloaded remotely or by a physical connection, depending upon a vehicle’s model, is to be used by manufacturers and regulators “primarily for the purpose of post-crash assessment of vehicle safety system performance,” according to an announcement in the Federal Register. (.pdf)

But privacy advocates are raising the alarm bells, and want the agency to require data safeguards, including demands that data be anonymized, and to prohibit the marketing of it.

If it's for analyzing safety data, then it should be voluntary. You don't need a sample size that big if you are just interested in safety analytics.

should be called "Pandora's Black Box"

absolutely no way that the data from the box isnt subpoenaed in every civil and criminal case involving a car crash.
