BBC – Amazon place AI cameras monitoring drivers inside vans

Big Brother Watch Team / February 4, 2021

Amazon has rolled out AI cameras that monitor mistakes delivery drivers may make while behind the wheel.

The technology will reportedly tell drivers to pull over and to take a 15-minute break if they yawn,

Although the camera will be rolling the whole journey, a total of 16 actions will be uploaded including hard braking, driver distraction and drowsiness.

Privacy concerns have been raised over the intrusive tech.

Director of Big Brother Watch, Silkie Carlo, said of the system: “Amazon’s appetite for surveillance knows no bounds. This intrusive, constant monitoring of employees creates an oppressive, distrustful and disempowering work environment that completely undermines workers’ rights.”
