An Architecture for IoT-Enabled Smart Transportation Security System: A Geospatial Approach
  Internet of Things (IoT) in urban transportation systems have been ubiquitously embedded into a variety of devices and transport entities. The IoT-enabled smart transportation system (STS) has thus gained growing tractions amongst scholars and practitioners. However, several IoT challenges in relation to cyber–physical security are exposed due to the heterogeneity, complexity and decentralisation of the IoT network. There also exist geospatial security concerns with respect to the embeddings of 5G networks into public infrastructures that are interconnected with the transport system via IoT. To address these concerns, this article aims to apply geospatial modelling approach to propose a smart transportation security systems (STSSs). It is modelled and simulated by undertaking an experimental study in the city of Beijing, China. The simulation outcome of the proposed architecture is expected to offer a strategic guide for strategic security management of urban smart transportation.
