Description of work
Task 7.1 Identifying and classifying RFID and geo-location devices already used or potentially deployable in crime detection, prevention and/or prosecution of crimes in participating member states and a number of non-member states where such systems are already deployed (e.g. United States)
This sub-task aims at
- making an inventory of public and private RFID and geo-location devices used or being planned in participating member states;
- identify the technical setup of each of the systems, including potential of interoperability between systems.
Task 7.2 Identifying grounds for establishment; set-up costs and on-going investment; and amount of staff
This sub-tasks reviews the legal and political grounds for establishment given at the time when the particular RFID and/or geo-location system was set up and compares this to grounds given for the retention (and/or extension) of these systems over the years.
- Identifies the set-up and on-going costs of each system.
- Identifies the amount of staff employed by the private or public sector to run the systems.
Task 7.3 Identify degree of automated decisions based on data collected from RFID and geo-location devices
- Identifies different decisions based solely on automated processing of data
- Identifies different decisions based partly on automated processing of data
- Identifies extent of human effort necessary.
Task 7.4 Identify the degree of interoperability between public and private RFID and geo-location devices
- Identifies interoperability situations between different public RFID and geo-location systems
- Identifies interoperability situations between publicly and privately operated systems
- Identifies the legal and policy protocols followed in the process of using publicly and privately operated RFID and geo-location devices.
Task 7.5 Impact Assessment following criteria established in WP3
- Carry out an overview impact assessment of RFID and geo-location devices based on the criteria established in WP3
