Description

There is no doubt that vehicular networks can be hugely beneficial to drivers in particular and society in general. However, there is great potential for this upcoming technology to have a very negative impact on users' privacy. This project researches ways to quantify the impact of various vehicular networking technologies on privacy and the mitigation of this impact.
