World's 1st AI cameras that detect drivers using phones hit Australia

A state in Australia has equipped their cameras with AI-powered mobile phone detection

A state in Australia has rolled out the world's first AI cameras that are designed to detect drivers who are using their mobile phones.


New South Wales (NSW), a state in Australia has said that these new cameras use artificial intelligence to determine whether some is or isn't using their phone while operating a moving vehicle. The system will flag a driver if they are suspected as using a phone, and then the images will be reviewed by a human before fines are issued out. NSW police assistant commissioner, Michael Corboy, told Australian media that "It's a system to change the culture."

At the moment, the plans for these cameras include forty-five of them to roll out across the state over the next three years. The Australian law is giving drivers a small grace period, as for the first three months if a driver is caught by one of these cameras they will be issued an official warning -- after the three months fines of $344 AUD ($233 US) will be sent out as well as penalty points. The NSW government has said that having these cameras on the roads could prevent 100 fatal crashes across a five year period.
