A Chinese bus company here has installed cameras equipped with facial
recognition and image analysis technology in some of its buses to
prevent accidents due to driver action.
surveillance cameras will capture every movement and facial expression
of the driver -- irregular behaviours or violations like making phone
calls, smoking or dozing off --, said an official of the Shanghai Jiushi
"When monitoring an abnormal behaviour, the
system will react and report to back-end staff within five to 10
seconds," Xinhua quoted Xia Zhirong as saying.
Then once the bus reaches its destination, the driver would be taken away for further probe.
company that operates 55 per cent of Shanghai's bus lines will equip
2,000 buses with the cameras before November. The firms annual transport
capacity is 1.3 billion rides.
