(Reuters) – Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O) said on Tuesday it launched a technology-aided system in some of its facilities to maintain social distancing, called ‘Distance Assistant’.
The system applies artificial intelligence and machine learning to the camera footage in buildings to help identify high-traffic areas and implement additional measures to improve social distancing, Amazon said.
