Hide and Seek – Preserving Location Privacy and Utility in the Remote Identification of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles [article]

Alessandro Brighente, Mauro Conti, Savio Sciancalepore
2022 arXiv   pre-print
The UAVs have to trade-off such enhanced location privacy with a non-negligible probability of false positives, i.e., being detected as invading while not really invading the no-fly zone.  ...  In particular, our experiments showed that when the location of an UAV is obfuscated with an average distance of 1.959 km, a carefully designed UAV detection system can detect 97.9% of invasions, with  ...  At the same time, we remark that this manuscript aims at investigating the trade-off between location privacy of UAVs and data utility, and not at detecting any kind of invading drone.  ...
