Amazon to use smart cameras to watch over delivery drivers


Amazon recently confirmed plans to install AI-imbued cameras in delivery vehicles, describing it as part of an initiative to keep drivers safe. These cameras are designed to watch over the road and the driver, noting concerns as well as good practices, according to a tutorial video.


"We are investing in safety across our operations and recently started rolling out industry leading camera-based safety technology across our delivery fleet. This technology will provide drivers real-time alerts to help them stay safe when they are on the road," Amazon said in response to an AFP inquiry.


Word of Amazon watching over delivery drives with smart cameras was met with concerns about privacy and the potential for unfairly harsh scrutiny by the company. The company has faced criticism over work conditions at its vast logistics network, which includes using contractors for deliveries.
