THE IMPLICATIONS OF PRIVACY ISSUES FOR INTELLIGENT TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS (ITS) DATA

The purpose of this report is to develop appropriate guidelines and institutional models for the management of sensitive data collected through intelligent transportation systems (ITS). This task is performed through the examination of current regulations, policies, and practices regarding sensitive ITS data and through receipt and characterization of input from data users and stakeholders. ITS applications and technologies that raise privacy concerns are defined as those that potentially enable the identification or singling out of a specific vehicle or occupant. Both current and emerging technologies that have this capability are identified. An in-depth analysis of electronic clearance and electronic toll collection systems, ITS applications with established track records in dealing with privacy issues, reveals appropriate practices and identifies potential stumbling blocks in the collection, storage and distribution of sensitive data.
