Amazon delivery driver safety cameras

February 2021

Amazon is installing AI-enabled video cameras in Amazon delivery vans to improve safety. The Netradyne-supplied cameras use AI to detect risky driver behaviour by drivers, with verbal warnings issued when drivers appear distracted, ignore signposts, or drive too fast.

The programme has led drivers, digital rights advocates and others to accuse the system of producing inaccurate and unfair results, and Amazon of unnecessary surveillance, inadequate security and privacy protection, and of running an opaque, unresponsive complaints and appeals system.
