New artificial intelligence technology poised to catch rule-breaking Queensland drivers

Cameras armed with artificial intelligence The software (AI) will soon be monitoring you 24/7 statewide, focusing on your seat belt and checking if you’re using a cell phone.

From November 1, a new strict camera regime targeting rule breakers will be rolled out in Queensland, handing offenders hefty fines of up to $ 1,000 and potential double demerit point penalties.

“Motorists can expect the cameras to be located anywhere, anytime,” a spokesperson for Transport and Main Roads (TMR) told 9News.com.au.

Cell phone and landline detection cameras and seat belt detection cameras will be deployed in urban and regional areas of the state.

The cameras take pictures of each vehicle driving in the lane monitored by the camera, including photographs inside the vehicle, mainly the front seats.

And if you do something wrong, the AI ​​will catch you, the spokesperson warned.

The images will first be analyzed by AI software, designed to look for illegal cell phone use and to check if people are not wearing seat belts or are not wearing them correctly.

When a potential violation is detected, the image will be reviewed by an authorized TMR agent to make a final decision.

In an effort to slow down dead and injured on Queensland roads, TMR will broadcast heavy penalties, including a fine of $ 1,033 and four demerit points for illegal cell phone use while driving, $ 413 and three demerit points for not wearing a seat belt correctly, and double demerit points for infractions repeated over a 12 month period.

Drivers will face further fines and demerits for any front passenger not properly restrained.

If a violation is not detected, TMR will delete the images.

Last year, 276 people died on Queensland roads, representing 57 deaths compared to 2019.
