Download: An Overview of Approaches to Privacy Preservation in Intelligent Transportation Systems

Abstract: The goal of this research is to explore rationales for mitigating privacy loss in Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) and to provide an overview of methods proposed to accomplish this mitigation. The limitations and potential benefits of both technological and policy-oriented approaches are examined, and potential approaches to merging the two are explored in relation to the proposed Vehicle Integration Initiative (VII) program.

BIOGRAPHY Caitlin is a 2nd year PhD student in the College of Urban Planning and Public Affairs at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). Her primary research interests are in the impacts of surveillance on traveler behavior and the maintenance of privacy in intelligent transportation systems (ITS). She received her B.A. from Vanderbilt University in 1999, and her M.S. from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville in 2003.

Caitlin's current research is concentrated on evaluating the willingness of travelers to share demographic and route information based on travel survey information. Her advisors are Dr. Piyushimita (Vonu) Thakuriah (Urban Planning) and Dr. Robert H. Sloan (Computer Science).

Prior to her graduate studies, Caitlin was employed as a transportation planner at the Mid-America Regional Council in Kansas City, MO-KS.
