Improving Privacy and Cyber Security in Autonomous Vehicle Networks with Application to Smart Cities
Smart cities offer various kinds of cyber parks.
Information and communication technologies (ICT) are believed to make the e-economy, e-government, e-medicine, elearning,
and e-society of a city more efficient and effective. The major goal is to encourage people to better use the outdoor
environment in safety. Advanced ICT aims to promote the movement of people from virtual life to real life in society. In
other words, information communication technologies and tools aim to free humans the prison called virtual life and its
predominantly sedentary behaviors. ICT can be used to incentivize people to use public open spaces and to spend more time
outdoors. This paper introduces ICT tools that are used in public places to promote human safety. Smart cameras have been
installed in many places. However, their application to smart cities and natural settings is more recent and limited. ICT tools
are implemented in smart cities to prevent crime and to increase the safety of outdoor activities. Security services include
users’ position determination and signal tracking with the support of smart digital, mobile phones, the GPS/ GNSS, QR code,
web services, and Wi-fi. User location can be determined by these services. When users request information about a place
from the location- based server, the server needs to know the location of the user, and hence location information is normally
requested. Furthermore, biometric of all types are considered an enhancement of visual surveillance. Biometric are already
being used for identification and verification including fingerprint, face iris, speech, eye, and DNA analysis.
