Autonomous Vehicles for Smart and Sustainable Cities: An In-Depth Exploration of Privacy and Cybersecurity Implications

  title={Autonomous Vehicles for Smart and Sustainable Cities: An In-Depth Exploration of Privacy and Cybersecurity Implications},
  author={Hazel Si Min Lim and Araz Taeihagh},
Amidst rapid urban development, sustainable transportation solutions are required to meet the increasing demands for mobility whilst mitigating the potentially negative social, economic, and environmental impacts. This study analyses autonomous vehicles (AVs) as a potential transportation solution for smart and sustainable development. We identified privacy and cybersecurity risks of AVs as crucial to the development of smart and sustainable cities and examined the steps taken by governments…

The Future of Mobility with Connected and Autonomous Vehicles in Smart Cities

Cities around the world are being wrecked by the ever-increasing burden of traffic. Smart cities are a recent innovation perceived as a winning strategy to cope with some severe urban problems such

Algorithmic Decision-Making in AVs: Understanding Ethical and Technical Concerns for Smart Cities

This article investigates the ethical and technical concerns surrounding algorithmic decision-making in AVs by exploring how driving decisions can perpetuate discrimination and create new safety risks for the public.

Analyzing the Adoption Challenges of the Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) for Smart Cities in China

This study explored the driving and dependent power of the challenges, and causal relationships between the barriers were established, which can help regulatory bodies, policymakers, and researchers to make better decisions to overcome the challenges for developing sustainable smart cities.

Autonomous Vehicles: Ethical Dilemmas

This paper will explore the regulative instruments, standards, legal and moral responsibilities of AVs to act and make decision in unavoidable situations, and believe applied software engineering ethical approach can be the solution to these problems.

A vision for sustainable mobility through autonomous vehicles in city planning

It is estimated that there will be an increase of more than 2.5 billion in the urban population by 2050 especially in Asia and Africa. Urbanization has a major impact on the transport energy use.



Proactive privacy for a driverless age

An early assessment of an area of concern that is growing as rapidly as are autonomous vehicles, and proposes the principles of “Privacy-by-Design”, an industry trend pertaining to other arenas of privacy, be adapted and used for regulating privacy around autonomous vehicles.
