Transportation safety and mobility applications rely on time-sequenced location data. There is a risk of unauthorized parties using this on time-sequenced location data to discover an individual's travel patterns.

The United States Federal Highway Administration is developing tools and practices that manage privacy risk while maintaining the utility of time-sequenced location data. The data will be used for the research and development of innovative applications to improve safety, mobility, and environmental protection.
