As the vehicles become a formidable sensor platform, the concept of VANETs is being transformed into a pervasive and ubiquitous concept of IoV (Internet of Vehicles). We discuss the scope of IoV over the limitations of VANET and further, we see the standards specified for automated vehicles and the aspects related to their deployment. We also discuss the various techniques under development that facilitate the transfer of anonymous user data upload in automated vehicle environment to the open public data repositories for the research community. We give the abstract of a model proposed to answer the privacy issue and see its controlled deployment. We finally propose the newly modelled approach of Google and suggest some modifications to the approach to answer the privacy issue. © 2019 IEEE.
