Privacy Protection in Traffic Surveillance Cyberinfrastructure: A Japan-United Kingdom-United States Comparison

Privacy protection affects decisions regarding the design, development and deployment of traffic surveillance cyberinfrastructure. Reciprocally, traffic surveillance can influence cultural and societal expectations of privacy. A complex picture emerges from a comparison of the interactions between privacy and traffic surveillance cyberinfrastructure across three societies - Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States. A cross-cultural analysis of different types of traffic surveillance cyberinfrastructure and privacy protections associated with them reveals varied approaches to privacy protection. The design and deployment of traffic surveillance cyberinfrastructures in the three societies demonstrates many levels of interaction among privacy concerns and traffic surveillance, as well as privacy protection strategies that are effective in this context.
