AbstractThe Cyber Transport Systems (CTSs) have made significant advancement along with the development of the information technology and transportation industries worldwide. The rapid proliferation of cyber transportation technology provides rich information and infinite possibilities for our society to understand and use the complex inherent mechanism, which governs the novel intelligence world. In addition, applying information technology to cyber transportation applications open a range of new application scenarios, such as vehicular safety, energy efficiency, reduced pollution, and intelligent maintenance services. However, while enjoying the services and convenience provided by CTS, users, vehicles, even the systems might lose privacy during information transmitting and processing. This paper summarizes the state-of-art research findings on information privacy issues in a broad range. We firstly introduce the typical types of information and the basic mechanisms of information communication in CTS. Secondly, considering the information privacy issues of CTS, we present the literature on information privacy issues and privacy protection approaches in CTS. Thirdly, we discuss the emerging challenges and the opportunities for the information technology community in CTS.
